I really had no intention of responding, but the above sentence jumped
into my brain this morning, with a thought....

Granted, it _was_ maybe a bit over the top, but let's think about just how...

First of all, Martin had, however subtly, publicly accused James of
racism. James, had the right to pubicly refute that. Which he did.

In doing so, he, in no uncertain terms, condemned racism, racist
thinking and bigotry in all forms. He condemned slavery as well as,
being on-topic to this barely on-topic subject, pointed out that in
some places, (notably Japan), the liberties taken by companies are
certainly way over the top, so much so, that an alarming number of
people take their own lives. This was hardly making light of the evils
of slavery.

So, he was over the top, but who's going to argue with his points! I
mean, he's anti-bigotry, slavery and abuse of employers. You want to
argue against that??? :-)

However, he had his chance to defend himself against the acusation,
and no further discussion down that road is necessary. That "over the
top" comment finally just struck me as maybe not being the best way to
put it! :-)
