I enjoy reading your thoughts on this, No Elephants.
I had no idea that Alton Brown was anti-gay. Maybe he has a little touch of teh gay himself?

My parents, both of the "greatest generation", were under the influence of every racial, ethnic and religious stereotype. But, believe it or not, there wasn't an evil bone in their bodies. They were simply a product of the time.

Where I live there isn't much ethnic, racial and religious diversity as in urban areas. So there was actually no one to be offended. About the closest thing to an ethnic group around here were second generation Middle Eastern-Lebanese-Syrian Catholic and Italian immigrants. I reached adulthood having never interacted with a black person or Jew. Seriously. We are mostly backwoods hicks here, for the most part. When I went to work in the nearby "city" I was told in no uncertain terms that "ni**ers" were bad news. Basically everything about them was bad, or so it was pointed out to me, since I was so ignorant. Although these are more enlightened times racism persists.

The late 20th Century! What an amazing time!
