Am I the only one who sees the problem with this?

Now, I am all for equality. But, I have found out recently that certain websites and/or social networks are against groups being made that contain the word caucasian. Now, they do allow groups with other ethnic/cultural/racial terms in them, but not this one. Do you agree with this, or do you see a problem with it as well?

  • Man, and I thought I was being PC when I described something around the house that I had to "fix" as being 'Caucasian Female Engineered'... *sigh*

  • I prefer "caucasion" over "white". It is more politcally correct since I am of European decent

  • I am biracial but just join groups to meet people I am not interested in the name of groups but I also do not think they should be excluded from having caucasian groups.

  • Personally I think if they allow groups to use other ethnic/cultural/racial terms in them, then how can they not let the word Caucasian be used?? If you can have a group that is Black, Asian, Latino, etc, then it would be only fair. I think this would be a case of reverse discrimination to not let the word also be used.

  • People are people and groups shouldn't be exclusive to a particular race/ethnicity.

  • If the website you are speaking of has groups for African Americans, Asians, or Latinos then they should have a caucasian group as well

  • That is the problem though Shaneagle, they won't allow that word to be used either.
