Letters to Z Bone For 2006

BobSometimes Z Bone readers just want to flame me or tell me something without asking me anything. Others want to expunge their guilt by confessing to Z.

There is no claim by me that any of these e-mails relate to reality. The more interesting or thought provoking ones will be posted right here. Obvious shills will not, unless it's downright hilarious.

Submissions may be edited or shortened at Z Bone's discretion or lack thereof. If you do not want your name shown, please specify so in your e-mail.

Subject: black history month

As a "black" I'd just like to inform you that in recent history it has been conlcuded that we are, indeed, the same species of humana. While you tried your best to be politically correct and dance around offending anyone, your simple use of the word and the context of "blacks" offended me itself. It was as though the word could be interchanged with "dogs" or "cats". Anyways, just watch the ignorance even when you're trying not to be. And dont ever refer to us as "blacks" again. This isnt 1940's Alabama.

[Editor's note: This one was a shocker for me.  I emailed Mr. Baptiste asking him to point out where this offending "racist" remark was but got no reply.  For the record, I fully admit that do use the word "black" in conversations, which may not be politically correct.  I also use Oriental instead of Asian, which I know is also not politically correct. I wasn't trying not to offend anybody. After all, I run a strip club website which is offensive to many people.  If you are offended, please do not read my website.

By the way, I included the subject here as a joke in case anybody thinks it was from Mr. Baptiste and not funny.]
