Canadian Supreme court reviews whether or not the word kemosabe is racist

via the Corner.

"The idea that there are some words that are notoriously offensive and some that aren't, and the burden on the employee shifts depending on that, really creates a lot of confusion in the workplace," said commission lawyer Michael Wood.

"We think it's time to clarify that and have some ground rules so people know what's permissible and what isn't."

If I was a canoock, I would feel offended, nay, threatened that a commission lawyer wanted to clarify what was or wasn't permissable.
