Boy, good thing we have solved all the other issues like crime, drugs, murder, etc. Now we have time to waste on really stupid crap. And this senator is not even, to all appearances, Asian. Just an apparent dumbass. Did he get lots of emails and letters from the Asian community about this? Not bloody likely.

Joe says it well:
"The cleansing and sanitizing of the language is all around us, a destructive path that diminishes the idea that words mean something. They mean what they mean. To find offense at every turn will lead only to the idea that falsification is better than truth."

What's wrong with an Asian tarp. Tarps are made all over the world and serve a useful purpose in covering things up to protect them from the weather. What did you say? Carp? Oh, carp. Never mind.

Wait for it.
Heaven forbid that a name describes a point of origin.

This will really cause a problem for the pet industry. Siamese fighting fish, chinese catfish, african cichlids, australian shepherd, siberian husky, himilayan cat, egyptian crocodile, and so on.

Which is precisely what makes this such a stupid idea in the first place.

What about "jigging" for panfish or walleye? Will that term be declared racist soon?
Why does everyone think they have a "right" to not be offended?
