Hasty generalization...please don't tie all of us americans into that 
claim. Add "where some Americans have gotten..." to that sentence, 
otherwise you sound just as racist as what you claimed that Matt's 
statement was starting to sound. Although i dont' think you mean it that 
way....and I didn't get the impression that he didn't mean it the way 
you took it either.
