    They have no need to avoid it - why should they? By saying the word 'black', which is 'negro' in Spanish, they would not be considered racist - would you be considered racist if you say 'my car is black' in English?

    Yes, you would. Blackboards are called chalkboards.

    Thus implying they are white. Very good. Do you live in troll bubble or regressive liberal bubble?

    Maybe they should be called 'slateboards' though they probably aren't made of slate these days.

    Or, maybe, given they are invariably both black and a board, the normal word 'blackboard', used with no intent to refer to human beings in any way, let alone as a racist epithet, is perfectly acceptable, and authoritative regressive liberal views can be safely ignored?

    It's odd how we never hear anyone complain of the term 'whiteboard' as being in any way derogatory to any human group, isn't it?

    You'll have to redouble your efforts if you think that will work.
