Euphemism Of The Day

"unacceptably low racial awareness and sensitivity"

Say, what's the "acceptable" level? "Darkie"? "Jig-a-boo"?

The question in my tiny & diseased mind is whether Friedland has been wandering around Netfux saying this sort of thing & someone decided that, in the current climate, enough was enough, or if our hero recently decided to start w/ this kind of language, due to his interpretation of the current climate.

Netflix fires PR head Jonathan Friedland; CEO Hastings memo: his use of the N-word at least twice “showed unacceptably low racial awareness and sensitivity”  —  In lengthy internal memo, CEO Reed Hastings addressed letting go top communications executive Jonathan Friedland …
One hell of a "communications" job, you stupid P.R. phony.
