I heard a black actress say yesterday in a “Black History Month” mini-interview that so-and-so was the first “Bl .. African-American” to do such-and-such.
I thought it was kind of funny that she didn’t think “black” was the right term to use, so switched mid-thought to “African-American” - and this was a spot for “Black History Month.”
How is anyone supposed to know the “speech rules” when they keep changing?
I just don't see people as colors or nationalities. I judge them on their acts and words, as I should. I then decide whether I want a association or not.
I suppose that if everyone did the same, all these problems would not be possible.
Nobody will ever be allowed to lay a guilt trip on me and I resent the attempts to do so. When that stops, the racial divides will also stop.
The first place to start is to stop naming a month for any race color or creed. The very act is racial on it's face no matter what the intent is.
All this must end before racism is history.
