I accept his apology. He seems truly remorseful.
Being Black and Gay from NYC it seemed to me long ago that people very easily use derogatory words in everyday speech.
I left NYC 2 years ago because I was tired of hearing men refer to their girlfriends as their b!#@h or guys on the train dropping the F-bomb or N-word so easily.

I forgive him. His tears appear real. I know i can be quite an asshole too (at times).
