Political correctness run amok [Feb. 11th, 2010|06:05 pm]
Stevie Z
MARTA officials are taking heat from some in the Asian-American community of Atlanta for designating one of its transit lines the Yellow line, to go along with its red, green, and blue lines.

My first reaction- it's not like they named it the Chink Line or the Slope Line or even the Yellow Chinaman* Line. It's a fucking color to go with the other fucking colors of their transit line. What, are Native Americans going to bitch too because there's a Red line? Hell, there's a Red Line here in Boston running through one of the most politically-correct cities in the country, Cambridge, and not a murmer.

Some people really need to find a hobby, rather than sitting around all day waiting for a reason to get offended. Sheesh.

And by the way, Chinaman....... {narf}

Of for dawgsake...I swear this PC crap makes people sissies in the long run. It not okay to say derogatory things, but people need to stop looking for trouble where it doesn't exist.

Chinaman. {narftoo} Haven't heard that in *forever*.
