I would have made mention of it when you went back the next time. I can only imagine the outrage she felt. If she understood the intended usage, she would feel much better about things, I would hope. If you leave it alone, she will only get angry every time she sees you or your wife. She may or may not buy your explanation. If she does, great. If she does not, then it is her problem. You would have done what you could.

Rickheel--Mrs. T actually did go back after we'd put the groceries away to make sure there wasn't any misunderstanding but the cashier seemed to not recall her face. I guess all white people looked alike to her.

</font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">The Rev. John Fredlaw, president of the New Hanover County chapter of the NAACP, said he had heard about the situation from several people.

"Maybe to some people this might have been a wrong approach," he said.

But he added that if the word "niggardly" was used in a nondiscriminatory manner, he doesn't have a problem with a teacher teaching the word. He said he could not be sure of the teacher's intentions in this case.

Unbelievable! The ignorance of this world is just astounding.

I guess the Green Bay Packers are going to have to change the name of their team, because it's offensive to me. It's sounds too much like "cracker", and I won't stand for it any longer, dam*it!...LOL

Completely absurd!

Rush Limbaugh had a long discussion about the teacher and the word niggardly on his radio show last Thursday. He also made mention of the product **** & Span. The whole thing was totally ridiculous.

I guess Jesse Jackson will now show up and complain!
