    Black Lives Matter: master bedroom is banished by estate agents over slavery link

    Estate agents are known for their expertise in euphemism. Box room? Cosy. Damp on the walls? Fixer-upper. Down at heel area? Character.
    Now they are having to come up with new terms as they try to use language that does not offend their younger, more socially aware clients.
    House hunters visiting properties may soon find themselves being shown into the “primary” or “principal” bedroom because “master bedroom” has suggestions of sexism or slavery.

    No, no, no ... take the 'i' out of the 'Main' and you get the 'Man Bedroom'

    So, not 'Master' either eh?

    OK ... will Mistress Bedroom do?

    ^ On a more serious note, a little research reveals that, back in 2013, the issue was being raised.

    ---

    In residential real estate, bid farewell to the 'master bedroom'

    "Master bedroom" replaced with "owner bedroom" in floor plans

    The “master suite” is being phased out — not from our homes, but from our lexicon.

    I surveyed 10 major Washington-area homebuilders and found that six no longer use the term “master” in their floor plans to describe the largest bedroom (with its own bathroom) in the house.

    They have replaced it with “owner’s suite” or “owner’s bedroom” or, in one case, “mastre bedroom.”

    Why? In large part for exactly the reason you would think: “Master” has connotation problems, in gender (it skews toward male) and race (the slave master).


    Enter the owner's suite.


    “I imagine it’s not only a more accurate description but also a more politically correct term of art,” said Steve Nardella, senior vice president of operations for Winchester Homes Inc.


    Either way, the “master suite” has been linguistically shoved aside.

    ^What a magnificent revolution that will change all the plight of the black people. Also the fall down of all the statues of the slave traders. And the white chess figures removal. And no longer black people on the rice packaging...

    After all, isn't it at last a real change in the black peoples lives and a rosy view in their promising future?

    Trump rips NASCAR for banning Confederate flag and targets Black driver Bubba Wallace




    Key Points
    • President Donald Trump lashed out at NASCAR’s only Black cup series driver and criticized the auto-racing league’s decision to ban the Confederate flag from its events and properties.
    • Trump asked in a tweet if Bubba Wallace has “apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX?”
    • “That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!” the president added in a reference to NASCAR’s move last month to prohibit displaying the Confederate battle flag from all events and properties.

    Washington Redskins, NFL under more pressure to change offensive team name, Donald Trump chimes in

    A new look to remove racial stereotyping-9373572-16x9-xlarge-jpg

    Several Native American leaders and organisations have sent a letter to the NFL calling for the league to force the Washington Redskins to change the team name immediately.

    Key points:
    • Washington and baseball's Cleveland Indians both announced reviews into their teams' names last week
    • US President Donald Trump tweeted his opposition to the "politically correct" moves
    • The Redskins have for years rejected requests to change the team's name


    "They name teams out of STRENGTH, not weakness, but now the Washington Redskins & Cleveland Indians, two fabled sports franchises, look like they are going to be changing their names in order to be politically correct," Mr Trump tweeted.

    ^Well then, The Atlanta Braves and the Kansas City Chiefs better start taking action now too. I suppose the Tomahawk Chant at the games will be banned and considered a violent act.

    The madness continues............

    Speaking of...when will the music industry stop allowing rap and hip hop artists from calling each other "Niggaz" in their music?....Oh wait. Sorry. That's freedom of speech....


    Additionally we got to enjoy Colin Clapperdick spew his hate that the 4th of July is a "White Supremacist" celebration.

    And its pathetic to watch all these businesses or media NOW start virtually every event or show supporting BLM and they only do it to be PC so they do not lose an audience or sponsor. As has been said, ALM, not just African American.

    Ya just can't make this shit up.

    Neither. He is objectively better than several QB's still in the league and that's not how White Privilege works.
