“Negro should not be considered offensive....”
I’m still not exactly sure WHY or HOW it’s offensive. That’s why I was quite dumbfounded when they warned me afterwards to be careful saying that amongst non-friends. It’s still used as an example, like I said, of my alleged audacity. Whether it’s actually audacious or not... who knows?
The permutations of what is, and is not, offensive when referring to ethnicity like that is myriad. And what makes it funny is that it is, ultimately, the actions of that particular ethnic background that eventually turn each euphemism into an offensive term, so then the ever-pandering left has to find a new one.
