"Mongols" now Incorrect

At least as a description of an intellectually retarded person:

"A Queensland disability advocacy group yesterday demanded controversial "Australian Idol" judge Kyle Sandilands be sacked unless he apologised publicly for referring to a contestant as a "mong".

The Down Syndrome Association of Queensland said the use of the term by the shock jock during Sunday's show was offensive and deplorable.

Sandilands referred to Brisbane singer/songwriter Bobby Flynn as a "full mong" while commenting on his performance.

DSAQ president Anna Magnus yesterday said Sandilands had a responsibility to educate the mainly young and impressionable Idol audience and he had failed in this duty."


Entertainers have "a responsibility to educate"?
