The First Black President? Not Really.

July 23, 2013

Imagine if President Obama announced when he first ran for President that he was white.  An absurd thought, right?  But is it any different for him to call himself black?

President Obama is not black, of course.  He is multiracial and was raised by his white mother.

You would think he would be as accepting of his white heritage as he is of his black heritage.  Touting his multiracial background, he could have been a racial uniter, for the good of his country.  Instead, he is a racial divider who uses race for his own good.

PC Police Nix "Master Bedroom"

April 22, 2013

With its overtones of sexism and male dominance, the term “master bedroom” is becoming the latest victim of political correctness.

It does have a Fifty Shades of Gray sound to it, I guess, but I doubt that anyone other than the PC police have given much thought to the term “master beroom.”

The preferred substitute, “owner’s bedroom,” doesn’t do much to remove the connotation of slavery in the term “master bedroom,” though.

I’d be fine with calling it a “mistress bedroom,” to balance out all those years of using the term “master,” but I don’t think my wife would be thrilled by the term.

Here’s an idea.  Why not just call it by the term we used when I was a kid – “bedroom.”
