No need to apologize at all. Allow me to clarify as my response was intended to reflect that you saw past race in the truth you spoke of. It was done in such a way that your race was an afterthought. It means you spoke from an objective perspective and did not allow tribalism to steer your thought process on the crux of the matter. You didn’t seem resentful, nor disingenuous, nor protective of an illegitimate privilege.
I applauded that and my apologies for not being clear enough. I continued your logic by pointing out the more stealthy ways that racial discord breeds protectionist and nationalist attitudes to our detriment.
