Jill and Pam called me and Pam apologized. She stated we didn't know each other enough for our 'relationship' to survive this kind of Facebook drama and she wanted it to mutually end.
I suggested that she unblock me, re-friend me, and I will delete the conversation we had completely and it would never again need to see the light of day. It was causing too much family conflict. In return, she agreed to be more sensitive about her posts - she said she didn't realize her audience didn't know her enough that she wouldn't be bigoted towards other ethnicities - and that we would both not make inflammatory posts in the future.
So, it's a reset. Pam now understands that what she wrote was very hurtful and she does not want it to cause family strife. I will refrain from COMPLETELY WRECKING HER with the argument/debate skills practiced here (that I myself get destroyed in whenever I participate).
We'll see. But at least I could share a story today for weekend reading. So I've got that going for me. :)
Edit: I want to add that I believe Pam did, in fact, know what she was writing about and that it was bigoted and hurtful. I think my calling out her behavior these past two days has 'cleared the air' a little bit for my extended family. Unbeknownst to me, this conflict had been percolating for months and I was the only person not in the immediate family "brave" enough "to not let go"(my Aunt's words) and force the issue to a conflict and resolution.
