    I don't think damaging someone's vintage car hidden in a garage/under tarpaulin would get pass a jury.

    Do we take every word that has multiple uses, one of which someone may find offensive and ban them?
    Obviously not. We don't even know other shops will follow suit. Supermarkets trying to play PC often backfires as people view it as as publicity-seeking nonsense.


    Also, there are several Negro Rivers.So one could write about "My Negro adventure"

    It must be really challenging being different, we probably should help such individuals as a priority. Though given the state of CAMS its not something our government see as a priority.

    Negro is closely associated with the Euro-African slave trade.

    Despite its a modern attribution to British & Americans it was created by the second group of slavers who bought from Africa the Spanish & Portuguese. As usual with slang and contested words no two cultures agree on its use.


    It also an official pencil type

    In this case it sort of makes sense if they want to call them mini gems so as not to offend - why not?


    With Negro kisses it definitely makes sense.
