PC words have been all the rage here fore eons. What is hilarious are the comments under the article.

It is also interesting to note what would be acceptable in Britain is not here and vice versa.

I agree the article and comments are hilarious, in fact we do have quite a bit of this nonsense in Palo Alto and PAUSD

There are non so blind as those who will not see.

Hey, what happened to the Stanford Indians?, they were playing when I was at Stanford.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
