1. Caucasian isn't a racially offensive term, though

Shouldn’t it be “Honkies” or “Ofays?” Granted, there isn’t really a term for white people as offensive as the r-word, but those would be closer.

2. Will "round eye" do it for you?

I've always found it pretty offensive when it's been directed at me.

19. I lived in the PRC and Taiwan and was called foreigner a lot and it didn't bother me at all.

Even in Taiwan when they called me "big nose" (a common "slur" for white people) in either Mandarin or Taiwanese, I wasn't bothered.

Though, I did get a bit testy when I was in our home in Minneapolis and my ex-wife's (Taiwanese) friend (a woman from Hong Kong) was talking about some "foreigner" (white person) and I replied, "Who's the foreigner here?"

25. It was probably the shop owner following me around,

and "muttering" round eye while I was shopping for oyster sauce that was most offending, but the two are intertwined now.

4. Maybe you're just not old enough?

It was used more in the seventies. But then so was “honky.”

and about every other slur too.

5. I don't think he was trying to offend anyone but he was getting the mean mug anyway.

...because people just saw it as offensive, first reaction I guess.

9. Yes, but I don't know very many people of Scandinavian decent who are offended by that.

Maybe even a little proud.

16. And maybe they shouldn't be upset about it (as long as its not a derogatory depiction or nickname

like redskins). I was going to add "or comical", but certainly the Vikings logo is a bit comical.

10. As a white guy, it doesn't bother me.

I'm trying to imagine a name that would bother me, and I've had no luck so far.

Changing the name from Redskins to Rednecks might be an easy transition, though.

23. When the NHL Las Vega$ franchise was awarded, ...

The team front office had a contest to name the team.

My friends and I, even my daughter, join in the hilarity and submitted, I sure some were duplicates, team name suggestions.

Vega$ Strippers
Vega$ Bouncers
Vega$ Gamblers
...
There were betters ones, but I only listed the ones I remember and pretty obvious.

We should do the same the Washington team name.

24. The "Washington Swamp" would troll the RWNJ's...

... but I'd rather not get those idiots needlessly worked up, I guess.

It WAS a swamp, though, geologically.

One of my distant ancestors was a guy named Otho Holland Williams (Williamsport MD is named after him), and he wrote letters to Gen. Washington to place the nation's capitol there. The swampland was picked instead.

27. Here are some ...

G-Men
Generals (The loser against the Harlem Globetrotters)
Monuments
Senators (More of a baseball reference)
Bombers (Also baseball reference, but also military)

...

Just spitballing.

28. Those would all work!

I hope they wouldn't pick Bombers, though. I'm so sick of our military sticking it's nose in places and generally making matters worse. Killing several innocent people in the process too.

I don't think it's healthy for us domestically either.

My oldest brother worked under an old physicist from Germany back in the 70's and 80's, and he warned my brother that the militarization would lead to fascism in this country. He was a young man when Hitler rose to power and he blamed it on Germany's previous obsession with their military.

14. If you don't know about the University of Northern Colorado intramural basketball team ...

that called themselves "The Fighting Whites", here are a couple of their logos.

The university has a large student body of Native Americans.
Because they didn't want school mascots depicting Native American badly, they decided to turn the table on those mascots and came up with "The Fighting Whites" name.
The community loved the name.
So the Intramural team took advantage and started marketing souvenirs and they sold like hotcakes.

'Everything's gonna' be all white". I love it! Good for them. I'll have to read the Wiki article a little later.

21. Our Lt. Governor is Native

and she's been wearing this shirt:


I also saw a Native guy the other day with the same shirt and said, "I like your shirt!" and he said that it's a good barometer for him in that most people get a nasty look on their faces when they see that shirt, but folks who smile or comment positively on it he'll usually stop and talk to.
