The troublesome fish currently known as Asian carp may get a new name in Minnesota over concern that the current one casts people from Asian cultures in a negative light.

“Illegal alien Carp”
Maybe they could call it the “franken fish” after another of their invasive and nuisance species.
The left will say that it is yet another, new, secret ‘buzzword’ that whites can use to alienate Asians instead of the old standby, ‘slant eyes’ or ‘gooks’.
The left will stoop lower than whale dung to trash anything that remotely sounds like it is meant in a derogatory way.
People have to lighten up for Pete’s sake. Freaking whinny liberals.
This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring up the long standing, thinly veiled racism of polish sausage.
Oh good grief. Who do I bitch to about the great “white” shark? What about the Egyptian cobra? Before long, the English language will consist of “googoo gaagaa”.
I thought for a minute Dan Snyder had come up with a new name for the Redskins.
How long before we have to rename Spanish Mackerel, Jewfish, Blackfish, Yellowtail and Red Snapper? (Of course Whitefish will probably remain forever) And what about Creek Chub? That might offend obese people.
Actually, I forgot, they've already started on the Jewfish and have been calling it Goliath Grouper the past few years. At least we still have Jewfish Creek for now.
How many people are offended, exactly? Or is this just a preemptive butt-hurt?
I dislike the term white noise!
Before long, the English language will consist of googoo gaagaa.
It wasn’t that you said “googoo gaagaa”, its the WAY you said it.
Ban the songs Spanish Harlem and Spanish Eyes.
Ban Black Friday
Ban Yellowtail wines.
Ban all ethnic jokes.
Ban, ban, ban
We hit on the Made in China label all the time. So much of it is cr** and made by Chinese puppets. To the Asian countries...Get over yourself.
Okay, I almost typed that with a straight face...
“a new name for the Redskins...”
That reminds me, what about Indian Summer? (apologies to Poco)
In any case I think that Dan Snyder owes Elizabeth Warren an apology.
The term “Asian-American” offends me.
In Cumberland County, Tn in 2000, there was a “Jap Camp Road” , at some point since.. the county fathers changed the name of that road to “P.O.W. Camp Road”
It Never housed any Japanese prisoners. They were primarily German and some Italian.
The locals still call it Jap Camp Road.
It was an Asian with a fettish for all foods Asian that released the first of these weird flying carl in the first place.
