“African-Americans”, The Oscars, And PC
— Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) March 3, 2014
This tweet from Ezra Klein has received 343 retweets and a bunch or replies, most of them pointing out the director of 12 Years a Slave is not an American at all. Director Steve McQueen was born in England of Grenadian parents and is a citizen of the United Kingdom. He`s a actually a Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
African-American is now the PC thing to say, and has, I believe, appeared incorrectly in news stories about blacks in Haiti,Canada and England.
