Do you find the term 'half caste' offensive?
I was surprised at the stink that the use of the term in a Police Media Release apparently caused.
Here's some coverage from Radio NZ News.
A google search suggests that i'm not the only one who's posed this question before now.

Good grief folks, is this the PC brigade gone-mad - or is there something to this in your opinion?
