I’ve said this before, but it is worth repeating. I rarely, if ever, hear nice people complaining about having to be politically correct. It is almost exclusively the domain of jerks who don’t want to feel peer pressure to not be jerks. If you can’t speak of others in basic terms that aren’t insulting, you need to shut up. Now.
I’ve always felt that one of the biggest impediments to racial progress in America is that there aren’t any slurs of sufficient hatefulness towards White people. Honkey just doesn’t cut it. I’ve been called that before and it always seemed somewhat comical, like a cast member from Sanford and Son was insulting me. No matter what happens in my life, I will always be able to handle taunts from someone that reminds me of Rollo with a smile on my face (Rollo, by the way, is my favorite character from that show).
I have decided, however, that despite the lack of a good slur, we need to have a euphemism for a name. White is too easy. So in the vein of African-American (which is dumb and I never use it), I think white people should be Blanco-Americans. That is a term I think we can all be uncomfortable with, thus leveling the playing field.
