  I never interpreted it that way.  please don't assume that just because
  someone who is not fluent in American English speculates about what
  someone else whom he assumes is not fluent in American English because
  he's not an American would have meant or misunderstood, said someone else
  actually misunderstood it that way.  I actually find such arguments very
  insulting.  if you make this kind of argument with, say, black Americans,
  whom you assume don't understand a word because they're black, you're a
  racist.  it makes no difference to me if you make it about foreigners or
  other groups about which you know very little that applies to individuals.
