Minnesota Renames ‘Asian Carp’ Because the Name Is Offensive

Minnesota’s governor recently approved a bill to rename a highly invasive species called ”Asian carp” because the name was deemed offensive to the Asian community. The fish, which have been threatening the ecosystem of the Great Lakes, will now be known as “invasive carp.”

Caucasians brought them to America,” he told the Star Tribune. ”Should we call them ‘Caucasian carp?’ They have names. Let’s call them what they are.”

We have a name for you as well, Senator, but Bingley keeps telling me we’re a ‘family” blog. Or Christians. Or something that impedes my creativeness.
