    it was about terminology and the notion that only African Americans have the right to use the term slavery or to dictate it's use based on the slavery that ended in the United States some 140 years ago.

    Frankly, I have a real problem with any interest group that seeks to hijack terminology in support of their own ideology. I despise it when conservatives do it and I despise it when we do it. I think it is wrong, stupid, and counterproductive.
