Rhypskallion: Oriental not being acceptable surprised me too, in college, 25 years ago.   Your German friend is not any kind of American.


Its a funny thing, immigration and names.

The only actual African guy that I personally know is white as a bedsheet and named Gustav. He's a programmer from Pretoria, and he sounds right out of Lethal Weapon 2.

He gets such a kick out of checking 'african american' on surveys and apps and watching the reactions people have. Since he became a naturalized citizen, he and the wife are 'african-americans' and his two kids are americans of african descent.

Tellingthem: I was surprised to learn the Oriental is now considered offensive


A co-worker called me on that one time (he was teasing me when he did it).  I mentioned something about Oriental and his response was "We aren't rugs".   Since then, I've been calling him "Ornamental" and he's been calling me "Inbred, redneck, hillbilly cracker".

Rincewind53: Somehow I think if the team was called "The Washington Negroes" he wouldn't be talking about the tyranny of political correctness.


I wonder if Quentin Tarantino has enough money to buy the team.

hasty ambush: [www.allblacksvsengland.com image 416x300]

Never heard of the second, but the first is the All-Blacks, so named for the incredibly racist reason that their uniforms are all black.

// well, not 100% black, but calling them the "All-Blacks Except for Stripes on Our Socks" would get kind of wordy
// how much more black could they be? Eh, a little...

They will probably do what the bullets did, take a cool name that offended a couple liberal politians and name it something fabulously friendly and gay.

It hasn't been the preferred nomenclature for ages.

Yes, such tyranny.

Political correctness is so tyrannic that Snyder is being forced to change his team name or have the team seized from him.

Oh...you mean that's not what's happening? We're just hearing from people who say the team name is offensive and should be changed, and he's ignoring them?

OMG TYRANNY.

Maybe RGIII should take a trip back to 1950 and try to drink from one of these. Then he might find out what tyranny looks like.

It's not like DC has a history of controversial team names or anything like that...

But seriously, why not consider renaming the Redskins as the Washington Warriors? Only the name has to change. There can still be a Native American theme, even the logo can still be the same, but they're being "respectful" instead of using a term that is, honestly, blatantly racist.

Despite the tyranny of political correctness oppressing freedom of speech, this person somehow finds a way to exercise his right to be an asshole. Interesting.
