Thank you for your concern but I have yet to understand that this story
can be interpruted as racist.
To me the moral of the story goes beyond skin color. In my case, I feel
like that little person being chased by tigers for not pleasing their
whims. When little, my parents were the tigers sometimes for I could be
quite naughty; growing up my teachers were the tigers biting at my
heels. Now some of my public makes me tremble.
My husband has been a professor. Sometimes he has stayed up all night
When asked why, he explained that as his students were more intelligent
then he was trying to prepare the best he could.
Be we Anglos, Saxons, Germans, Orientals, Latins or whatever are all
little Zambos at the end of the day in Smallville, Main Streat, the
pueblo or in "big time" as my son exclaimed when he arrived as an
employee in New York, New York!
Now I have gone off deep end with my getting bent out of shape. As
superior and very intelligent adults, the issue should not be mincing
such petinesses but clarifying, upholding ideas and theories scientifically.
I shall stop here to prepare a second message in an attempt to get to
the root of the matter - what is queso fresco/fresh cheese and how can
we deal with it properly when attempting to recreate medieval recipes?
