6. Nor do many of those assigned to black and white descriptions.

Red, yellow and brown are no longer acceptable.

Given the realities of this troubled and angry transition to a better future, including free expression of black and white racism that's not even recognized and often considered acceptable when it is (!), those terms are picking up some very bad history. I fully expect the children of those of us who insist on still calling people white or black to have to sit us down to a firm talk on the language they allow in front of their children.

What'll replace them as simple describers, who knows? But I do know that our current behaviors are not the end of our societal evolution to better times, just...behaviors of a troubled transition.
