My mother still refers to anything marginally darker than that as n!!!!r brown.  She is 87.  I have a client of the same age who talks about fuzzy wuzzies.  I feel sorry for the oldies as they cannot get their heads round pc.  In 1970s Yorkshire it was considered extremely polite to refer to Asians as coloured.

From the article:

"Why not call it cocoa, caramel or chocolate - sweet dessert items? But they used tobacco. I was shocked when I saw it.”

Why is cocoa OK but tobacco not? 


Here are some pics of cocoa and tobacco; they are clearly different colours, doing the bra is the colour of tobacco, why can’t M&S describe it as such?

Does anyone remember that production of the Four Feathers from the 30s? There's a commentary on a battle and I'm sure someone is saying the the Fuzzy Wuzzies are entering the fray.

is she shocked when she sees someone smoking because it reminds her of slavery ?

That's what I assumed, either that or they somehow think the world 'tobacco' itself should be banned because it might encourage smoking.

The 'story' made me laugh though. Ultimate lazy 'journalism' - manufactured outrage plus craven apology from M&S, probably took them ten minutes to put together. Eventually they'll create some sort of app that can do it automatically.
