Man, I hate the whole "I'm [ethnicity], and I'm not offended, ergo nobody else in my ethnicity should feel offended about this either, stop being so politically correct!"

It's interesting to me that people are so reluctant to change these sorts of things, even if they seem minor to those people. It's like they feel like admitting that this sort of thing is racist is a bad thing to do, like they shouldn't have to.

Apparently it's "oversensitive" to want this change. Or, or...shit, I need to stop reading Facebook comments, they're worse than Reddit and Youtube at this point.
