Re: Can't say white / black

when my wife referred to the doll as "African-American" the woman became rather upset about the politically-correct terminology. "It's black, honey!"

To be fair the correct PC terminology could have just been changed to "black" and she'd missed it. It's harder to find umbrage to take if you can't keep wrong-footing the public.
