Thread Name: BS: Racial stereotypes in retellings?
Subject: RE: BS: Racial stereotypes in retellings?
Wasn't it George Eliot (a lovely woman who said what she mean't and mean't what she said) who said, and I quote, "We cannot reform our forefathers"? So I really wish the politically inept would stop trying, it's getting very tiresome when one has to watch what one says with out fear of offending some poor little darling. Here's the obvious answer to the aforesaid politically inept, you don't like what some people have to say....? don't listen and STOP trying to tell people what to say and what to do!!
