Senoufou, do you think its possible that your husband, growing up as he did in Africa and not subjected to discrimination because of his color, not having experience of the racism prevalent in the western world - the minstrel shows, blacked-up white actors on stage, in movies and on early television, "ni**er jokes", lynching, Jim Crow, race riots and all the rest - is not offended whilst persons who HAVE experienced this sort of thing and/or are at least aware of it ARE offended?- be they "black", "yellow" or "brown"?
