Anyone can find insult if that is what they seek. I sought to explain 
that there are aspects of ICANN's North America region that are 
problematic. An indigenous government is lost to Europe. The largest 
population of least assimilated Indians in the US is overlooked.

The discomfort is mutual, and the preference I first expressed was for 
Greenland and Mexico to be included in "North America". Failing that, 
as Olga pointed out at the Geographic Regions meeting in Cartagena, 
Indians do at least as well in South America as in North America, and 
a single region harms Indians less than partition.

Disagreement with you is a really high stakes thing. What is your real 
issue with whether GL is in one region or another? Whether MX is in 
one region or another?
