YOU CAN CALL ME AL, OR MIKE, OR JOE

But don’t call me Colored.

This is so stupid. When I was a teenager, black Americans PREFERRED to be called “Colored People”. Oh, but not now. Now they want to be called “African Americans”. Well, FUCK THAT, OKAY? I’m mostly of European ancestry. Do I demand to be called “European American”? Hell no, nobody does, but the black people in this country seize on any form of P.C. bullshit they can that gets them some attention.

What fired off this rant was reading this morning how some white guy referred to blacks as “Colored people” and ended up apologizing for his “hurtful words”. Aww, come on, that’s such total crap. Can we maybe someday get done with silly, childish stuff as this and start acting like grown-ups? I call myself White, because I am. Blacks call themselves Black, when they are. But most brown people in this country just call themselves Americans. Shouldn’t that be good enough? What could be better?
