    i hate pc,pc usually occurs from a bunch of useless beaurecrats annoying tossers.
    Then again, I hate anti-PC. It generally comes from a bunch of stereotyping tossers with the catchphrase "I'm not racist, but...".

    Hmm yeah - but there are other things which are quite disturbing i.e. the "black music awards"... can you imagine if we had a "whites only music awards" - there'd be uproar!
    Black Music Awards aren't limited to Black people!! Eminem and Justin Timberlake are regularly nominated for MOBOs!!

    PAKI is widely known to be a racist term. Black people generally take offense to it (and it is often used to describe black people that aren't actually from Pakistan) and thus it shouldn't be used because it's racist.
    If you were flicking through a DICtionary would you mind if I called you a **** flicker or something? You're logic seems a bit warped. What exactly compells you to want to call people PAKIS?
    what has the word "paki" got to do with black people?

    pakistan isnt a country with a majority "black" population.

    What do you mean? Eminem and Justin Timberlake are quite clearly of a white background. Heck, even Mick Hucknall's got a MOBO!

    It's Music of Black Origin - it doesn't mean only black people can win it. Exactly like how the colour of your skin doesn't matter at the Q Awards, etc..

    Maybe they're including Asians under the classification of "Black"?

    They were considering chaging "Black Country" to the "Grey Country".. that really is PC going over the top. Luckily, the people were vocal in their disapproval and it never happened.

    Of course, we have the "Whites Only Movie Awards", we just call them the Oscars.

    That's probably why Halle Berry was so surprised to win one.

    No no no. We mustn't have a word for it, that's mute-ist.
