Better I don't answer your question.Ionnis said:Do you call Black people coloreds and negroes too? How about people with down syndrome? Are they mongoloids? What about those yellow people? I personally call "sodomites" human beings, but I can understand how that would be too progressive for some. Now for a serious question: what do you call a homosexual who doesn't engage in sodomy or any sexual activity whatsoever?
Ah, but yes, the political correctness of the day. It's wrong, racist in fact if I'm not mistaken, today, to refer to Black people as "colored people," but it's ok to to refer to Black people as "people of color;" yes, very logical. The term
"African-American" is absurd, because it describes people from a continent, not a nation, a continent composed of Caucasians and Blacks, eg. Egyptians are Africans, and Egyptians who have immigrated to America, you guessed it, are "African-Americans," but Egyptians are Caucasian. But, no, politically correct America has assigned the term "African-American," to people of the Black race. What ever was wrong with the proper name for this race, "Negroe," from the Spanish for "black?"
