The computer term "master/slave," seen as racially offensive speech, was named the most politically incorrect term of the year by CNN !!!!

In the UK we now have :
Baa Baa Black Sheep , but must be followed by new version Baa Baa White Sheep. (honestly)
We no longer have Blackboards in school, we have "chalkboards" or "interactive media board"
Can no longer order a Black Coffee - usually called an Americano now.

And - wait for it - because this is nothing until you start the controversy on Blackberries & Blackcurrants which are now universally referred to as "Fruits of the Forest"

:confused :confused :confused Marts

Well unfortunately Marts, the lunatics are now running the asylum and battling to see who can be the most politically correct, no matter how absurd they may be.

There are increasingly more ridiculous examples materialising every day and it concerns me, I guess many others as well.

Well all I have to say....this is all because of those wierd kids back in our school days who were sh*t scared of bullys or themselves risking a smack from teachers for being tossers!

Yes it would seem that these kids that we all took the p*ss out of are now very much getting their own back. Like all of you here I couldn't give a monkey's on how people take me as I am not entered in lifes popularity competition, Yes I do speak as I find and believe in freedom of speech.

So I shall carry on using the word 'Blackboard' etc as these are words that I was raised with and no political do gooder is ever gonna make speak different, why should I change and more to the point who's going to make me?

P.S I really miss collecting the Goliwog badges from marmilade jars don't you?
