Here's a PC mind puzzle. Is interracial breeding PC or non-PC? References:
Guess who's Coming to Dinner
LeGuin's Lathe of Heaven (the grey people); article in today's WSJ about
blacks in Brazilian adverts ("Brazil's leaders... tried to assimilate the
black population by encouraging intermarriage. A legacy of this policy of
'whitening' is that less than 10% of Brazilians identify themselves as
blacks on census forms, with most chosing any once of dozens of intermediate
shades between black or white... 'It used to be an accepted philoshophy in
Brazil that blackness should be hidden or filtered out of the popilation...'
says... a black community leader."

Remember, the question is not whether interracial breeding is good or bad --
the question is whether it is PC or non-PC.
