I totally agree and believe this site could be more civil in the language it uses.
Even the classification of Euro's I think individuals should be treated as individuals not classified as a group.
The use of some words such a gay, retarded etc do not belong in any civilized discussing.
It is difficult at times being a minority for any reason but when it comes to mental, racial or sexual discrimination it shouldn't tolerated.
Most of us have never been a minority and don't have the sensitivity on this area.
The name I used Lao Wai means foreigner in Chinese and has both good and bad meanings.
Please respect Tranes wishes.
