I agree with you, Stefan- those who do not understand history are
doomed to repeat it, and a friendly explanation of why a particular
expression is considered offensive is very different than using it in
an offensive manner.
However, Suey, you have received a reasonable explanation. Do not
expect rationality out of people who are being offended, just
determine they find something offensive and shut up and move on.
I think we've beaten the subject sufficiently to death. Can we now
please talk about cooking?

I vaguely remembered the story and that some people were offended by it, but had no idea why and certainly no idea that it wasn't the story itself.
