|I AM White, Obama IS Black, and the Kid With Autism IS a Retard. |
Anybody Got a Problem With That?

Grr, my history teacher got mad at me today. We had a 'private talk' about how it
was politcally incorrect to say that Obama is black. He's 'African American.' If we
can describe someone's hair by colour, why not their skin? I am white. Obama is
black. End of story. It makes no difference what colour your skin is, but it is
that colour. I actually think it is more racist not to call Africans black
and Caucasians white. It's as though they're afraid of the colour of people's skin.
But whatever. He said he wasn't going to get into a debate with me, and my dad says
that's probably because he knew I'd win. And then we started talking about mental
retards and how that's also incorrect. How, praytell, is that incorrect?!?! It's
the truth! The word retard derives from the French "en retarde," meaning late.
Retards are late in development!!!! Argh, politcal correctness makes me so mad!
Please, I'd like any and all opinions on all portions of this diary entry, with
backup information. Pretty please?
