Hey, the outcome has been great whatever the mix is.
That could turn into another thread indeed. My personal feeling is that while it sounds good in theory, it actually creates more division. Go to any other country, they just call us F*c*ing Americans. My parents came to the States at a time where the emphasis was to become Americanized, which is why they never taught us Italian.
It totally works both ways. Again, I won't freak out if I hear the word D*** but W**, it's on like Donkey Kong. I got called that when competing in a track meet in high school. Some dude (I think he was black) said something like, "Hey W**, I bet you'd run faster if a plate of pasta was at the finish line." Being an 18-year old kid, it bothered me. When I was in grade school, I had a classmate that called me that a few times. Bothered me then but as a 41-year old adult, I've gotten the last laugh.
Korkscrew, you broke it down better than anyone.
