This is an easy one. Relax, have a beer, and I'll tell you that "where I come from" is not where you think! First off, perhaps I made a mistake in where you were born, but you have a latino name, and you made a reference to Mexico in a post so I inferred, perhaps incorrectly that you were from Mexico. If you have "latino ancestry" that means that somewhere down the line your family came from a Latino country. If you were Pierre, and you made a reference to Paris, I might have assumed that you were french. Now You were the one who mentioned "American tv". How could that be construed as anything less than that you were from another country and felt superior that where you come from they don't have such "silliness". I simply called you out on the american tv phrase. There is certainly crappy american tv, as I know there is crappy Mexican tv, and french, and russian and don't even get started on japanese tv! So don't try to play the racist card with me it won't work. I also never made any reference to your value in the kitchen or anywhere else. I'm sure you are quite valuable. I have worked with many people from all over the world and good workers are very valuable no matter where you are from. I have worked with some amazing people from Poland, Laos, Guatemala, etc. your attitude, not ancestry make you a value or a liability.
As far as you only having 4 posts; once upon a time we all only had 4 posts also. I never said you couldn't speak your mind, what I said was that since you only had 4 posts you were new and obviously unaware that this particular conversation and many other similar ones have had pages of discussion, and that if you had looked around you would have seen these posts and realized that Panini was not the only one who felt passionate about some of the garbage that is on tv. But for some reason you chose to single out a member that spoke his mind and make semi rude comments. That was uncalled for, so I chose to let you know.
Now once again, I made no racial comments. I made no sterotyping of you. You chose to make these up as issues. I would love to see you hang around for many years and keep posting. I have nothing against you in any way, shape or form. But don't try and play the predjudice or racist card here because you don't like getting called out. That's all, no big deal. It's over, let's all have a beer, and if we ever get together I would gladly, in a friendly way, see who could really cook the other under a table.:smoking:
