I think I may have given the wrong impression. My dad rarely punished me, although there were many times I deserved it. That's why this was such a shock. To his credit, I think he wanted to be sure I never used such a vile word. Neither do I think that he was a racist...certainly not in an extraordinary way. But I could be being defensive.

I've known very few white racists in my life. In fact, one of the few racial incidents I've ever witnessed, complete with racial invective, was between some Mexican kids and a couple of black guys walking with a white girl.

The reason for this, of course, is that I have no racist tendencies so nothing racially unseemly ever happens in my sphere.
