Dude, sometimes humor is just that.

It was not implying racism on their part, but it is still true that a team name like that would not fly here in the states. You'd in reality if we had an NFL team named "The All Blacks" have a response from the white anxiety right saying "Why cant we have a team named "The All Whites".

I totally accept that that rugby team name has nothing to do with race.

Just like if I joked "I can find Fort McHenry on my GPS but not Fortitude."

I know you don't think it's racist.  You said you didn't know the history of the name, so I was explaining it.  Sorry if it came off any different.

For whatever it's worth, I have never EVER thought or suspected that you are even a little bit racist.
