    Should this be a state law? No. But I guess people do find it offensive.
    It's just called common sense.

    I'll refer to people the way they want to be referred to. If I know their preference.

    I have a Native American friend who gets very angry if someone calls him Indian. He actually prefers to be called Cherokee.

    But then you had AIM, the American Indian Movement.

    Sometimes it''s hard to know.

    I don't buy into PC BS. Perhaps people should do a little history research into the terms Asia and Orient and they might discover that Asian is far less accurate a description - historically than is Oriental for people from the far east.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
