In the mid-1990s, historians and scientists started replacing B.C. (Before Christ) and A.D. (Anno Domini, Latin “for in the year of the Lord”) with B.C.E. (Before the Common Era) and C.E. (Common Era). Supposedly, this was done to be more politically correct for those of other faiths. But the irony is that the new abbreviations still designate the times before and after Christ’s birth, so what’s the point?
I have no solutions. I just know that whites have got to stop saying, “I’m not prejudiced” or “This isn’t a racist country.”
