    I'm sorry for that.

    As for who I think I am, I think I am the kind of white person who understands the limits of privilege by virtue of being gay, and existing in a family that has intermarried with other races. Including myself.

    I also think that I am on your side, and I misread your comment, for which I apologize.

    There's something we always say in the LGBT community: "don't alienate your allies".
