    sometimes stuff comes out of all our mouths.

    I've always found it's best to just say it -

    Ack!!  I didn't mean to say that like it sounded!!!  Please don't take offense!

    That way it puts everyone at ease immediately.

    gah - so I'm watching last season's Top Chef.  There's a quiet japanese chef on it.  She doesn't speak English well, and admits she can't always express herself well - so it may be even in her native tongue, she is just a quiet reserved person.

    So at the start where they're "auditioning" for a spot, some chef (and he DIDN'T make the cut) calls her "Origami".

    And then there's another male chef who comments, I noticed I was standing next to Kumiko and i know she's Japanese so I thought she would have increidble knife skills.

    hmm...

    so we can say stuff could be edited for a specific reaction, but I can't see how editing can make the interpretation of both statements anything but the first one insulting and inappropriate, and the second totally a stereotype.

    I don't think Ken will last long, honestly.  He likes to do pageant stuff!!!  We don't need another pageant designer contestant.  Really.  They only go so far in PR.

    All the suffering of this world arises from a wrong attitude.The world is neither good or bad. It is only the relation to our ego that makes it seem the one or the other - Lama Anagorika Govinda
