Am I welcome?

As I was leaving the college campus yesterday, after straightening out a financial aid mess and scheduling a German CLEP test, I noticed a sign for "Latino's Beauty Salon"

That got me to thinking. Would I be welcome there? Would I have to whip out a picture of my half-Portuguese Dad to be granted service?

What if I opened up a beauty salon right next door to them called "Caucasian's Beauty Salon?" Would I be run out of town on a rail after being tarred and feathered?

Probably.

Remember years ago at airports, when you were paged they'd yell out over the loudspeaker. . "Mr. Smith - WHITE courtesy phone".

Even that would not likely be politically correct now.

Probably! Now they're probably called "beige" or something. Stupid.
