The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) announced today that it is acceptable once again to use the word 'Colored' when referring to non-caucasian people.
"It's part of our name, for Christ's sake," said NAACP Chairman, Julian Bond, "Besides, it takes so much time to say 'African American' that we figured it would be easier to just whittle it down to a single syllable."
"Plus, we get Native Americans, Hispanics, and even Orientals requesting our help on a daily basis, so we figured, why not," Bond went on, "Oh, oriental isn't cool? Well, just call them colored."
According to White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, President George Bush had no comment on the news, aside from a tremendous sigh of relief.
