In what has to be the stupidest fucking case of political correctness ever, a Spanish teacher in the Bronx was fired for saying the word 'negro' in class. Poor old Petrona Smith was teaching the kids the Spanish names for the colors one day when a kid took offense to the word 'negro', the Spanish word for the color black. He complained and she got fired. Forget that the teacher herself is negro, err, black, and the school is officially bilingual (as opposed to every single other school in N.Y. or L.A. which is unofficially bilingual). She's suing the school for wrongful termination on the grounds that the school administrators are retarded a-holes. She'll win. If I ever paid my taxes, I'd be revolted.
