I rarely post on the board, but usually enjoy reading the posts. Elaine, I can't believe you see no problem with your post,

"If there was someone they could pick out that maybe they weren't sure could speak or read English maybe they were trying to keep you out of trouble. I know that sounds too basic to be true and I wasn't there but it would make sense to me. "

So if you see someone that is asian you should ASSume that they do not speak or read english? Do you not see the racism in your comment? While I am one of those round eyes you seem to be sticking up for (please don't, your not making us look good), I'm sure my asian friends would be highly offended by your remarks.
