Liberals are so rational, aren't they? http://now.msn.com/seattle-says-word...d-be-offensive
See, Lanie, this proves that liberalism is a mental disorder. Brown bag is in no way nor was it ever connotative to any race, creed, or color with the exception of the color of the bag it used to be carried in. However in the liberal mind it is. This is as bad as the Phillies' minor league affiliate not being allowed to name their mascot "Pork Chop" because 1 Puerto Rican guy said that the term pork chop is a racial slur toward Puerto Ricans. I mean, I've literally spent my entire life living around, going to school with, playing sports with, working with, being close friends with, Puerto Ricans and never once have I ever heard 'pork chop' used as a slur nor have any Puerto Ricans I asked about it but 1 guy said it is so the Iron Pigs had to change the name to Ferrous. Liberalism=completely devoid of reality.Sorry Seattle residents, but citizens are no longer allowed to brown bag it, because city officials have decided that the words "citizen" and "brown bag" are offensive. The Office for Civil Rights has circulated a memo encouraging government employees to stop using those terms. Memo author Elliott Bronstein suggests using "residents," "sack lunch" or "lunch and learn" instead. (Because everyone will start asking co-workers "Are we hitting Subway or did you lunch and learn it today?") Bronstein says that brown bag could be misinterpreted as a reference to skin color, while citizen isn't inclusive enough. "A lot of people who live in Seattle aren't citizens but they are residents," he said. "[Citizens] doesn't include a lot of folks."
