We have a problem of different interpretations based on the country. We have a well founded historical basis for this being determined a borderline racist statement in the US. Things are probably interpreted differently in The Netherlands and I have no doubt that your reasoning is correct for your country just as it is incorrect in our country. We are at a stalemate with respect to this. My only point is that the quote attributed to JC (and none of us were there) was terribly insensitive and should never have been spoken. I don't think we are going to resolve whether it was "racist" or not this evening (or morning where you are - go to sleep now and let's see what tomorrow brings).
