Government bans workers from saying brown bag and citizen!


Control what people say, and you begin to control what they think.  Start small, by banning little things like brown bagging your lunch.

Via Fox News:

Are the terms “brown bag” and “citizen” offensive to you?  Well, Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent out a memo stating that those terms are no longer to be used by government workers.   The city’s OCR explained that the term “brown bag” has been used to judge skin tone and the people of Seattle are not “citizens”, they are residents.

Certainly, if the term brown bag was being used to describe the skin color of other workers in an offensive manner, that should be looked into by that employees supervisor.  But to issue a memo on it?  Sounds like there are too many employees over at that office and the good citizens of Seattle ought to investigate who is getting paid their hard earned tax dollars to write these silly memos!

Next they will want to ban the little brown bags themselves.

    Paper bags are brown for crying out loud! Citizens vs. residents?? Give me a break – don’t they have better things to do with their time?

    And once “brown bags” are banned, can demanding all shades of brown be taken from the crayola box be far behind?

    They are called “brown bags” because they ARE BROWN. It’s INSULTING to ALL of us to read any more than that in to it.

    I told my wife she had better watch her language in Seattle, when she is going to be up there for a few days there. We have never been to Washington state, but we flew to CA, 11 days after 9/11, to meet my cousin that had grown up in Oregon; then
    we headed for Oregon the next morning. She took us to the lumber mill towns where she had lived and my dad worked back in the late twenties. We had good weather, but it can be very rainy, as well as cold, as another cousin told me when he moved to Astoria, in 1957.
