Not really, but when you're talking PC such stupidity would happen. I once saw a news caster referring to a black South African refer to him as, "African-American African". She was trying to get across that he was from South Africa and black, but couldn't bring herself to say 'black'.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo John the OFM Supporting Member of TMP observes...

"Zombie" is starting to become the "Z-word". It is too pejorative and dismissive, and can hurt zed feelings if used in a nasty way.

I think we need to come up with a new word, or words, for these people that is not hurtful.
