So, I don't want to turn this into another one of "those threads", but I feel it needed to be addressed.Someone thought it was rather pleasant to make this rather distasteful statement and send it in a message to me today. Although I'm not "black" in the sense that "Black" denotes someone of African background etc, I feel personally offended as a person of colour to receive such comments in the guise of a "compliment". I mean, what? I'm suppose to feel good getting such a compliment because I'm not white?? Has anyone ever received this sort of "compliment", and what was your reaction?
