Minnesota Democrats Change Name of Fish — “Asian Carp” Is Offensive & “Hurtful”
The fish is called the Asian Carp because it comes from Asia but Democrats think it’s offensive to call a fish that came from Asian countries “Asian” (am I allowed to say Asian here? I can’t remember)
Minnesota Democrats changed the name of the Asian carp last week. They said the name was “offensive” and “hurtful” to Asians. The invasive jumping fish has spread to dozens of states causing destruction of rivers and waterways.
I Own the World reported, via Breitbart:
The Minnesota Senate on Monday approved John Hoffman’s (D-MN) bill to change the name “Asian carp” so called because the species originates from Asia, to “invasive carp”. Since Asian carp were introduced in the U.S. in the 1970â€²s, the fish have spread to dozens of states causing destruction in the delicate ecosystems of the waterways.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have been fighting off the most invasive species, the black carp from China, the Silver carp from Vietnam, and Grass carp from China from spreading into the Great Lakes were the fish could do massive damage the regions fishing industry. While arguing his case on the Senate floor, Hoffman said that referring to the fish as “Asian” was hurtful to some people.
The should have compromised and called it the “Invasian Carp” (see what I did there?). Okay, seriously, I feel like I just got stupider after digging deep to figure out why calling this fish from a handful of countries located in Asia, “Asian”, is hurtful, I came up with a blank.
