    PC Term for White Person

    Do you know what it is now? I read on dictionary.com that caucasian isn't correct anymore ?

    How odd. I have no idea what is considered correct now. I'm curious.

    1. Anthropology. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of one of the traditional racial divisions of humankind, marked by fair to dark skin, straight to tightly curled hair, and light to very dark eyes, and originally inhabiting Europe, parts of North Africa, western Asia, and India: no longer in technical use.

    Hm. Well, my guess is that it's out of date in anthropology, but not for conventional, everyday use.

    The 2000 U.S. census states that racial categories "generally reflect a social definition of race recognized in this country. They do not conform to any biological, anthropological or genetic criteria."

    There should be a website database for PC terms. A PC dictionary that updates. Like the offical PC Catalog of 2010, etc.

    honkey, cracker, vanilla face, whitey, the man, these are "PC" terms if I've ever heard one. Then again I could be completely wrong about the definition of "PC"

    Wait I'm never wrong
