I got so pissed at his statements (on and off his blog) so much that I did some cursing in the comments section. For that I apologized via e-mail (as of this posting I am currently banned):
"Recently, Someone told me about Misty Knight's comment, so...You may be right about the profanity thing, Mrs. BA.I'm torn between apologizing (because I feel bad about that) and saying nothing because I am equally offended by DJBA's comments about Black parents and communities. Seriously.We don't have to agree or ever speak, again, and you certainly don't have to change your opinions about me, but I hope you will accept my apology. I am sorry about the profanity.This apology is freely given and I recognize that you have every right to refuse it.Good evening."
And, for the record, it is not dissenting opinions that bother me so much as their foundations. Misrepresentation is also quite bothersome. It was those things, not the act of disagreeing, which set me off.
This is not an attempt to do anything other than to publicly apologize (since I showed my tail publicly) and clear up a thing or two.
