This should not take long to write....
The politically correct management of the Citizens' Advice Bureau has decreed that spam emails should not be placed on a 'blacklist' but instead be placed on a 'blocklist'.
Can you spot the subtle difference? Clever isn't it?
A spokesperson said:
Our approach to language is not prescriptive or dogmatic, but where we know or become aware something is offensive, fosters stereotypes or prejudice, or is inaccurate, it makes sense and is respectful to use alternatives"
We are not even talking about people here!
How is it that our fellow citizens who happen to be born 'black' are quite happy and proud to call themselves 'black' while a minority of white people have to work so hard to convince us all they are 'right-on' and colour blind?
There would not be any perception of racial divide in this country if idiots like those who made the decision at the CAB, did not keep trying to alter our language and pretend the difference in our colour was non-existent.
If you happen to be black and disagree please let me know!!
