GUEST,dick greenhaus darkeys - offensive term, or not? (49) RE: BS: darkeys 29 Jul 00


Margaret V-

Which part of my dislike of the term African-American do you question? Awkwardness, I admit, is in the ear of the behearer, but I find any 7-syllable euphemism to be ungainly.
As far as inaccurate, I think that's fairly obvious, too. My grandfather was Russian-American, but I'm just American.
