Hi, I didn't realize Rose had also posted to the list. To summarize
what I said to her -- we are all free to feel and be whoever we
want and if she doesn't find potato people insulting, that's fine
with me. However I do -- and that should be fine as well. Not
only do I find it derogotory, but in my case -- it is not true.

It's not surprising that if your history fits the mono-view portayed
by this program that you are comfortable with it. The only ones
who would not are the ones who are marginalized by the stereotype.
