ok, you know what?

regardless of hairsplitting about how obvious or not it is what she meant, and whether or not "it's because of the name White" was a reasonable conclusion to jump to, none of that changes that the conclusion was, in fact, incorrect. So trying to fight with me for pointing that out and claiming I was offering my "opinion" was unreasonable. I was not offering an opinion, I was pointing out a factual error, and arguing that the error was reasonable to make rather than being obvious doesn't change that.
