Discriminatory words will not be allowed to use

Discriminatory words will not be allowed to use according to a new American law. The words like “Black and Oriental” will not be allowed to use when calling the descendants of minority. It was put forward by Meng Zhaowen, a Chinese American and senator of congress. “Black and Oriental” would be replaced by the words “African American and Asian American”.

       It is a progress of civilization. The example should be followed by other countries. It will push people to behave in a correct way in communication, thinking, and so on.

       In our daily life, we often see conflicts on the street. Sometimes, it might be a discriminatory word which causes an arguing, even a fighting. As a part of education, it should be highly thought of, for it is a guidance for a student to know what is right or what is wrong.

       Do you have any ideas about it?

There is no African American or Asian American just like there is no Irish American or English American...if you are in the US, prefer to be referred to be by your name or your passport, the rest is just bull. Some Americans are black, what is wrong about describing them by the colour of their skin?

Some people mind the color because they have the experience of being shamed. So people should be careful to use those words which easily causes discrimination.

I am wondering: now, after the election with white supremacy on the rise and whites attacking those of other races/ethnicities - 700 such attacks so far!, do you still believe using kind words shapes a nation?
Or does it only mask what people are really thinking?

    Thus, an admission of your own stupidity.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
