There are no more illegal immigrants

"The AP said its decision to stop using the term “illegal immigrants” is part of a broader shift away from labeling people and toward labeling behavior -- for example, referring to people “diagnosed with schizophrenia” instead of “schizophrenics.”

There is a campaign under way to shame media companies into abandoning the term “illegal immigrant” and replacing it with kinder and gentler euphemisms such as “undocumented worker.”

Re: There are no more illegal immigrants

Don't really care about the immigrant issue, but I hate changing language just to make people feel better. Whatever word that replaces the word someone is offended by eventually becomes offensive to them.

Diagnosed with schizophrenia and schizophrenic is the same fucking thing. Same symptoms and effects. Changing the name does nothing.

Cripple was fine. Then it became offensive. So handicap replaced it. Somehow because of a completely bullshit urban legend that handicap meant someone begging with a cap in their hand (not true in any way), handicap became offensive. So disabled replaced it. Then that became offensive so now we have differently abled and physically challenged. Like the video below says changing the name of a condition doesn't change the condition.

So let's say everyone starts saying undocumented worker. Well in 10 to 20 years that will be an offensive label and will have to be changed again.

Re: There are no more illegal immigrants

Well in that case, I would like to instead of calling people supporting stuff like this brainless liberal dipshits, I will instead call them uniformed left-wing time and money wasters

It was like when people said that midget was derogatory and claimed that "little person" would be more PC even though little person sounds even more degrading.

Thank you Edge.

I know right? It's a good thing that they don't exploit them for cheap labor or anything like that. That would be messed up.

Re: There are no more illegal immigrants

The whole schizophrenia/schizophrenic doesn't seem like a change, just proper use of wording. You have schizophrenia, you are a schizophrenic.

I do agree that "undocumented worker" sounds better, not because it's apparently less offensive... it just sounds better.

"Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for... it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?"

Re: There are no more illegal immigrants

So redneck would be country western and ni- Well, we already know what's "urban."

You sit there and you thump your Bible, and you say your prayers, and it didn't get you anywhere.

Talk about your psalms, talk about John 3:16…
Urkel 3:16 says I don't have to take this... I'm going home.
