While I agree with this statement, putting taking off my usual conservative hat
for a moment I want to get a little PC here.

What other race is named by color? Are Latinos brownies? Are African
Americans blackies? Unless those are generally acceptible terms (and when I
define 'acceptible', I mean is it something you'd call one of your friends of
that race in a non_joking manner), I really don't think whitey is appropriate.

Also, are caucasions the only people with wealth? Again, a stereotype that
does nothing but create division and spin what was a logical opinion with bias.

Just my 2 cents,
