    Is the patent office going to be inundated with requests like this now?
    Why do letters offend you?

    N.W.A was used because they couldn't get a copyright on the words actually spelled out.

    Because the word Gringo is a word Mexicans use to disparage white people or more specifically white Americans.

    How can you not be outraged by that?

    Because white Americans aren't a minority.

    It is interesting. A poster earlier tried to suggest that any word that CAN be used disparagingly or has roots at ANY TIME as being a slur is ALWAYS then disparaging and a slur regardless of the context of it's use.

    Using that posters logic, it calls into the question of trademarks for things like the NAACP. If a slur is a disparaging term regardless of it's context, use, or history then this becomes a problem. Similar as well for GLAAD.

    Naturally it WON'T ever actually be a problem, but just highlighting the flawed logic that somehow because a word at some point in time was used as a slur and disparaging suddenly means it always is regardless of context or manner of use.

    So offending white people doesn't count?

    Yeah, Cheney's Op-Ed sent Harry into a tailspin yesterday.

    Wait - only minorities are allowed to be offended by something? Is that a new rule?

    He is a sissy, so I suppose it suits him.

    No, it's a false equivalency.
