The complaint about these posters reminds me of the complaints about this children’s tv presenter

"she attracted controversy from parents complaining that the one-armed presenter was scaring children, and prompting difficult conversations to explain her disability."

I'm at a loss to imagine a household in which that is a difficult conversation.

And i wonder why I can't stand BC. There we go.

Meanwhile, in the grown up world, we have politicians that reject victimisation:

So what, exactly, is 'BME'?

It's so hard to keep up with SJW terminology these days. Is there a website that lists today's politically-correct acronyms?

It is hard, but the first line of the article explains:

She told BBC Radio Kent she found the commonly used acronym for Black and Minority Ethnic "patronising" and "insulting".

I hadn't heard it either, but no surprise since it's English.

City of Saskatoon, advocates defend anti-racism billboards

And at a technical university in Ontario:

Are you privileged because you're white, male, heterosexual? UOIT posters spark controversy

And at Trent University this controversial event:

‘Anti-white(ness)’ Canadian university event mired in controversy

What terminology do you want to use then if this social justice warrior terminology is so hard to keep up with?

This thread reminds of the idiots on LinkedIn who plump up on the white privilege threads saying that "you have to play your hand" and "I got where I did through hard work".

Candidly just so everyone is clear there is no such thing as a self made person and anyone who tells you other wise is kidding themselves.
