At the very same moment, a dimwitted Northwestern University undergrad by the name of Dan Camponovo, who bears an uncanny resemblence to Flounder from the classic movie Animal House , was agonizing on the pages of the Daily Northwestern over the racism inherent in the term, "shady."
|Flounder look-alike, Dan Camponovo|
Young Camponovo was aghast when he overheard a person on the El refer to the area around White Sox park as a "shady neighborhood."
The sensitive NU lad somehow conjured up the notion that "shade" was somewhere in the misty past a pejorative term for negroes, hence in Camponovo's new PC world, we can no longer use the term shady without causing great offense.
I guess you can then add that to the term "niggardly." A Maryland teacher was fired for using that proper English word, derived from the Nordic, hnøggr, meaning stingy, during a discussion of school funding.
Proper English be damned, the PC catechism takes precedence!
Lithuanians on the Southwest side used to refer to blacks as "smokes." So I guess Camponovo and his co-religionists will now mount a crusade to purge our language of the use of smoke, smokey and smoke-filled room.
Heaven knows the psychic agony that use of such words could cause to tender African-American sensibilities.
At least as much as the physical agony suffered by an innocent white kid who was robbed and beaten within an inch of his life by two black racists -- egged on by the likes of malevolent knucklebrains like the Daily Northwestern's Camponovo.
