    Language is weird though, I mean we say "males" or "Christians" or "Americans" (not male people or Christian people or American people) but we say "black people" and "gay people" (not blacks or gays). I guess ultimately it's mostly just a matter of being respectful of the language that the groups themselves use, and not alienating them by using terminology foreign to them or derogatory of them.
    i see blacks, even racist black power types, use "blacks" all the time on twitter. This is just more nonsensical language policing by leftist loons

    Actually, I would have - had I noticed it.
    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

    consider this isn't the only instance of confirmation bias in your general worldview

    Well you of all people would know about "confirmation bias" in their "general worldview".
