PC is the abbrevaition for Politically Correct. An example: it is NOT PC
to call Afro-Americans "Blacks". I hope you get it, it took me, coming
from Europe myself, some time to find out what exactly was meant by PC
and how to obey the rules. There are a lot of nuances, e.g., you will
insult Asians if you refer to them as being "Oriental". This term is
reserved for the -delicious- food Asians cook.
Have a nice weekend yourself!
