(By the way, my colleague is a white lady (late 40s?); I rarely mention such things but I think this is interesting that a black person and white person asked the same question.  Yet we both admit to being jaded or cynical too.)  And for those who think I am over reacting (and I probably am) instances like this have happened before.
