Insanity On The March

http://www.dailyredundancy.com/archives/1018.html

Agitators of African descent, including members of the National African-American Coalition of People (a shoestring-budget, in-mom's-basement organization if ever I've heard one; Google only points to this article concerning them) have seen the official nomenclature for black holes changed to the ultimately catchy 'Super High Gravity Locations'. Some have said that calling these awesome and destructive singularities 'black' is defamatory.

In related news, all persons of African descent are to be paid US$0.01 for each 'black' crayon Crayola sells.

I hereby call a protest against this nomenclature in all your published scientific works by sticking to the catchy term 'black holes' and not committing that bullshit to memory.
