Kingmi, I know un poquito de espanol, and have spent one summe semesster

in Xalapa Veracurz on a homestay. I know just enough about Mexican culture, to know that the word "perro" is very offensive, because I was shocked and appalled to hear a Mexican man that I happened to be walking with, turn and viciously insult a museum guard who he did not think was adequately attentive, by calling him  "Indio perro", or Indian dog, the racism towards indigenous people as opposed to "true Spanish blood" is another ridiculous form of prejudice it seems.

Good for you that your principal backed you, and vindicated you, because someone got all PC and offended, and pulled the race card. 

I'm glad it worked out for you, not all blogger enemies will become blogger friends though, sometimes there is just too much water under the bridge, and bad blood, and that's how it goes.  Sometimes it's best to just part ways.  (are we still on for that cup of coffee so I can show you the error of your Republican ways?)
