    Political correctness gone mad

    Where has all the sanity gone from this world? First, Coon cheese and redskins have a name change. Fishermen can't call luderick blackfish any more. Yet we have whiting, Silver bream, Black bream, Red Snapper, and the list goes on. Now what really concerns me is why N.Z. can still use the term "Allblacks". I give up

    might as well remove the word black from the dictionary. but what is most concerning is member Blknight may have issues, but the abbreviation might buy him some time before the cotton on to him.

    I only know them as luderick as I'm a Victorian, I think the New south Whelshmen might get sprung calling them Blackfish.

    Funny thing is that Blacktown in Sydney actually refers to the fact that in the early days it was an aboriginal settlement.

    There was a bit of agitation a couple of years ago to change the name but it's gone quiet for some time.

    Get rid of them if you must, but don't go near the Bundy Black!

    I've mentioned 'Black Friday' a few times over the years, but you hear it all the time so, I'm not Robinson Crusoe there, I reckon!

    Does this mean re-runs of the 1955 classic 'Dam Busters' movie is a thing of the past , what with the black Labradors name now consigned to purgatory (or worse) ?

    That would also mean that Barry White (Barry Carter's stagename) has culturally appropriated his name, as he is definitely not white! Perhaps they should now do the whole cancel culture thing on him too?

    For anyone interested, this is Jordan Peterson talking about the history of Postmodernism and where Political Correctness fits in. Hint: neither goes anywhere good!
    Some of the comments in the vid are worth a read too.

    Life is just a series of obstacles preventing you from taking a nap.
