/* More bias */
In other words, you keep trying to drag me into an long and tedious argument about why others like myself think the way we think. I'm not going to convince you to use this word, so why should we continue to waste time arguing about this. We can agree on this: you think the term is offensive. I think it is not offensive, nor do I think the term is antiquated. We can also agree that many people agree with you. We can agree that some number of people (up until about two weeks ago Ted Turner was one of that number) do not think there is any problem with this or other similar terms. Since we can agree on these facts, can we agree that this is an example of Wikipedia's bias against the traditionalist point of view? Again, I'm not trying to get you to concede anything about the term. I'm just trying to establish that Wikipedia has liberal bias in every corner where one may look for it.

::You know, to an extent you have a point. I am Italian. I don't find the words WOP, Guinea, Goombah, Daigo, or Guido offensive. But many Italians do. Hence, I don't use those terms. Politically correct? Maybe. Sensitive to others? Definitely. [[User:Myk|Myk]] 19:18, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
