President Obama signed an amendment to the Local Public Works and Capital Development and Investment Act of 1976 that bans the the words “Negro” and “Oriental” to describe blacks and Asians.
The measure also updates how the federal government describes minorities, and replaces ‘Negro” with African-American and American Indians as Native Americans. The acceptable reference for Oriental is now Asian-American, Breitbart reported.
Just a few weeks ago, the Library of Congress began its official ban of the term “illegal alien”.
Guess we can’t order Oriental Rugs from the Oriental Trading company anymore.
And what is going to happen to Oriental Avenue on the Monopoly Board?
And we will have to end the United Negro College Fund.
If the term “negro” is out then the the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People should definitely be disbanded. “Colored” is a big no-no.
