Monday Rule: One Word Identifiers
From now on, every group can be called whatever they want, so long as it is only one word. No more “Roman Catholics.” It’s just “Catholics.” No more “African-Americans,” so guilty feeling liberals have to call them “black” like everyone else. The one I am having trouble with is “little people.” I feel like all the one-word options are kind of inaccurate or offensive. I guess since “black” is an adjective and gets added to “black people,” then “little” is one word and should count. And speaking of “black people,” the NAACP is now the NAABP. “Colored” just sounds racist. Besides, everyone knows black isn’t a color.
