Huh?? This is carrying political correctness to absurd levels.
No one has used any of those terms in a racist manner. And talking about where these terms came from and why they are considered bad by many people is a good education for all. I vaguely remembered the story and that some people were offended by it, but had no idea why and certainly no idea that it wasn't the story itself.
What is next? Stop publishing and reading books like Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn?
<<< People, please be aware that the racial terms used on the list are offensive enough to get you banned from most lists, fired from your job, and likely to attract hostile attention from the NAACP and news media to the SCA.
This entire thread needs to be discontinued and removed from the list archives.
Sorry to be so heavy but this is very dangerous stuff you people are playing with. Please please discontinue it.
