The US is buzzing this weekend with the latest PC apology.

A leading Senator was quoted in a new book that Obama was electable because he was a light-skinned African American and did not speak with a Black dialect.

No doubt this is true but the Senator apologized to every black man in his address book!

What a diatribe to perpetuate PC verbiage!

Not all black people are African American. There is a black caucus in the US Congress. Can they not be called that!

NAACP is still active and they are the Nation Association for the Advancement of Colored People. That seems to be insensitive.

So deal with it!

If they changed it to the NAAPC (National Association for the Advancement of People of Colour) it might get confused with The National Association for the Advancement of Political Correctness, at least until the rules change again.

If we're really bothered about being PC, we should all be green.

It is interesting how these threads have a life of their own, and was it worth the revisit?
