    They are replacing that racist name with others. Tuareg and Cherokee and Qashqai.

    Afraid so. It will get tossed out along with the Ticonderoga pencil.

    They'll have to change the name of Big Chief Mountain in southern Alberta.

    I think I will change my av in honour of the mountain for a while. Spent many, many days under it's shadow while visiting Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Who knows when it will be renamed to Big Sissy or some such.

    I learned about these from my roommate in college (who ended up getting kicked out of the dorms for hosting too many parties).

    It is in part a reaction of the MSM, which regularly called it the Wuhan coronavirus, Chinese coronavirus, and the like right up to the very instant that Trump did and then magically the same folks who had been using those same terms puffed out their chests and self-righteously started squeaking and screeching about racism and xenophobia HERE is a video of members of the MSM using those terms dozens of times right up until Trump did as well. I should also note that a LexisNexis search revealed that Asian news services were also calling it the Wuhan virus.

    As for European news...



    And that's just a few I pulled up that used "Wuhan virus" or "Wuhan coronavirus" in their titles. Many more contained those terms in the body of the story.

    I didn't even look to see how many called "Chinese virus" or "Chinese coronavirus"

    Interesting, I never saw it much in my own search. Danish news have at least been constantly calling it Corona virus. Or maybe I'm just biased because I prefer that name.
