Everyone feels offended about everything nowadays.

@ShortDump we don't have to say that. I say ****** all the time at my local pub. Besides, the blacks around here are usually not from america.
@erRO (3 May, 2013)
You may be able to say it at your local pub, but you can't say it on Eat Liver, or Yahoo! or . . . .

@ShortDump: Nonsense. In most of Europe we don't speak English. In the parts that do speak English we say 'black', and black people care not a damn.

wait, why would it be "african american" in europe?

I didn't know calling Asians as such is racist. I guess it's just the same as calling Europeans europeans, Americans americans, and so on. Just saying.

Even though my skin is a pink-orange toned color, I am called white . . . . so I should be offended unless I am called Caucasian?

I was inside a paint store during a minor earthquake once and now I'm a member of every single ethnic group, even purple.

I'am latin-european and more white than most white guys. So if they call me white should I be offended?

Offense can never be given, only taken. So YES!

Whatever they call me, I hope they say it nicely. When I was a kid, "black" was impolite and "Negro" (meaning black) was polite. I think "Colored People" was once polite in my parents' youth. Not now. "Persons of Color", a polite PC term, is just silly. Even albinos are persons of color. "Black" and "White" seem pretty innocuous, if inaccurate, when said and meant politely. I've heard people refer to Nigerians and Ethiopians as "African-Americans". News Flash: They're not Americans.

Rick and Cambi chime in to deny the decades-long Modus Operandi of the oh-so-predictable, goose-stepping Left. *Not* persuasive, chaps.
Really? (7 May, 2013)
Goose stepping refers to the Nazi party, which is an extremist RIGHT wing group. If you want to criticize them, you need to mention communism.

I've never met anybody like this, nor have I ever met a black person offended by the word black.
