Olga, where is the racist jibe? I don't see one. I saw Mike making a
comment about how he lost his job. I couldn't detect any racism in that
comment. He nothing derogatory about Indians. He didn't even *complain*
about the situation. He simply gave his view of why he lost his job, fairly
plausibly. To see that as racism, unless you have some independent reason,
seems to be an unfair interpretation which calls for an apology to Mike.
Heck, Mike can be irritating, but I don't see how he deserves this.
