Years ago, I was communicating online with a woman. I wanted to compliment


how well she was speaking. I was sincere. I compliment people who communicate expertly on a regular basis. I work in communications. I confess I knew she was Black. She was immediately offended, told me so and explained why. I felt awful and apologized. No success. I didn't mean to cause upset, but I did.

So I had to learn the lesson the hard way.
