 We're now known as the " Loosely affiliated group of like minded cave dwelling bruins ". Would you like to join the group?

I was in a flag football league, and a few dozen people from our department joined into a team.  As we were brainstorming names, a guy from Vietnam, without a touch of humor, goes "How about The Clan"?  Several black people in the room looking at him with jaw dropped.     

He simply was unaware. I mean, i'd guess that he'd heard of the KKK, but the connection of 'the clan' being an unacceptable associate was just not on his radar.

Its like how Hitler ruined the Hitler mustache.  The KKK ruined the word, clan.
