I've just twigged. This whole 'right on equality' shit means that the hams now think of any non white from anywhere on the fuckin planet, as, "African american".
Fuck me. As a race, humanity is fucking doomed.
Sadly yes. "African-American" has for some time been the go-to PC euphemism for non-white people, at least among the sheeple. I've definitely heard black British people referred to in this way.
Speaking of which, why do we never hear of "English-Americans"? Every other nationality seems to be represented, they have Italian-American, Irish-American, you name it. Surely some English people emigrated to the USA at some time?
Anglo-Americans? WASPs? *shrug*
WASPs, that's White Anglo-Saxon Protestants, right? What's religion got to do with it?
And isn't that a bit, er, racist? I mean, if they avoid saying 'black' (ie "African-American") why is it OK to say 'white'?
That's why I shrugged, just guessing they use other euphemisms as opposed to English-American. I can only presume they add in Protestant to Anglo Saxon because of the whole Mayflower thing, but I'm really guessing again. No offence meant to anyone, this really needs one of our friends across the Atlantic (who really should be up at this hour) to help us out.
