“Red Line” Deemed Offensive

Now that anything even remotely resembling racism against favored racial groups has already been eradicated, each deletion from the Newspeak Dictionary is more ludicrous than the last. On the heels of the word “Sooner” being declared racist in Oklahoma, we learn that the words “red” and “line” must never be placed next to each other, even in the context of mass transit, lest the words trigger persons of politically preferred pigmentation.

From Seattle:

Sound Transit will stop calling its north-south red metro line, the line that will eventually run between Everett and West Seattle, the “Red Line.”

Apparently, according to a press release, people complained to Sound Transit that it sounded like “redlining.” In the past, African-American families were kept out of certain neighborhoods in cities by being denied home loans or insurance. This type of segregation was known as redlining…

The Blue Line, Green Line, Purple Line, and Orange Line can carry on as usual, as they have not yet been designated as racist.

On a tip from DCGere.
