I find this kind of thing very useful, thanks Robert. I recall very well how Jesse Jackson bullied everyone into using the term African American, just as the term Black was becoming well established as a dignified and antiracist way of referring to Black people. And it reminds us once again that PC was a term that leftists once used to gently make fun of our own pretensions.
