Got this email yesterday from our EO Advisor. The EO Advisor typed the disclosure and got the list from the EO School.
While the majority of these terms are obviously not offensive, many of them I have never even heard of. Not only that, but as you can see, a lot of them are simply...words, legal terms, names, that can't really be substituted without a long, drawn out description.

Here is the message:

As interracial dating/marriage has expanded and become acceptable, that term has been used less and less.

I heard it more in the '70s and EARLY '80s.

I would have to say that EOR is out of line. Unsolicited emails like that, even from the EOR, are not appropriate. They of all people should know that someone could take offense to the list and complain about it. But in all honesty, who gives a shit. I am and American with freedom of speech. If you take offense then you can suck my ba*** bitc***,%&&%$,(*^&$&,*#!%&,(&^&*^&%%,*&%^$%,(^&^$%^
And thats all I got to say about that.

Yep, a couple of us at work mentioned how she just made the NAACP a bad word apparently.

Next time I see her in person, I may play it off as if it was a joke. She's got two enlisted grades on me though.

The other ones I either haven't heard of or don't consider offensive...

Some of these words have their RARE proper context but most of them don't have a place in the work place.

The is a gray area.

I really don't think even the majority are offensive. A lot of us at work don't know what a whole lot of them are even supposed to mean in a negative context.

We had to go to open house for the youngest child tonight who is starting kindergarten (German word, BAN IT!). We were told, they no longer have "rules". They are now called "Expectations".....Gimme a friggen break.

Guinea pig???????????????????

Is that supposed to be offensive to lab rodents?

That's the source, as in having someone try out something new to see if it works.

They are also a meat source in Peru.

I hope they don't think Italians would be offended by it.

Yep. You could probably guess another characteristic of the person who sent it, but I can't say it, might be called a racist.

I feel your pain. I was under the same assumption. I also had the crazy notion that I would be around other conservatives. Boy was I wrong.



OMG , I'm so offended now. You are troooouuuublllee.


I like how she prefaced her list with " I didn't make this list...." Yeah apparently you did because the majority of these phrases I've never heard of, or have never heard used in an offensive context.

Red Bone????....thats a breed of dog.
Sounds Greek to me???....my understanding of this was just a colloquial way of comparison to Greek/Latin language, the old "dead language" as it has been called....meaning " I don't understand" .

This PC bullshit is ridiculous. What do they want us to do...point & grunt???

It's sad to see Common Sense in such short supply.
