News Item, and a proposal: WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – A study shows that most Hispanics do not prefer the term “Hispanic” or “Latino” when it comes to describing their identity. According to a new poll conducted by the Pew Research Center, 51 percent of Hispanics would rather be identified from their family’s country of origin, instead of describing their identity as “Hispanic” or “Latino.” “Half (51%) say that most often they use their family’s country of origin to describe their identity,” the Pew Research Center survey says. “That includes such terms as ‘Mexican’ or ‘Cuban’ or ‘Dominican,’ for example. Just one-quarter (24%) say they use the terms ‘Hispanic’ or ‘Latino’ to most often to describe their identity. And 21% say they use the term ‘American’ most often.” This would be added to the lonnnnnnnnnng list of alerts we receive about words that may offend, I'm sure glad they brought this to our attention. Whew. Okay, so here's the proposal: 1. President Obama should appoint a Political Correctness Czar so that all of us can stay up to date on words we're allowed and not allowed to say. 2. Give it all kinds of taxpayer money, because as we know, the more bureaucracy the better. So we need a big office building and plenty of marble flooring. 3. Launch a web site within ninety (90) days that is updated regularly so that none of us can use the "Aw shit, I didn't know" excuse when we use a word that may "offend" someone. 4. Since the list of words we're not allowed to say changes with such frequency, we'll need to set up another bureaucracy for maintenance and updates of the site. More marble floors, baby, you got it. 5. Give the site an appropriate name, like www. PCpolice .gov, www. WatchWhatYouSayOrWeWillGetYou .gov, something like that. 6. Anyone who is caught uttering or writing a word that is not allowed is summarily dispatched to the local soccer stadium and shot. Wait. Wrong country. Never mind. Strike that one. Just trying to think out of the box here. .
