Ongoing Translation - Rabbainu is not a racist G"F!

B"H today while I was working on preparing Sefer Hamidos for our free English publication, may it be soon B"H, I corrected a terrible error which would have our holy master as a being G"F a racist - the translation of Kutite - a term for a non-Jew, was taken for the Hebrew word Kushit - a black woman, and  thus rendered as a travesty to have relations with a black woman. [Where as the distinction between Jews and Non-Jews is by no means racist, as everyone who is willing to take upon themselves the full obligation of the Torah and all the holy Sages, is welcome to embrace the Jewish religion and will be accepted as a full Jew].
