"Ground zero mosque" — the term is so simple! So evocative! So … inaccurate and misleading?
True wisdom is to call each thing by its proper name, but some things take a while for us to figure out what to call them. (Is it the ‘BP oil spill,’ the ‘Deepwater Horizon spill’ or the ‘Gulf of Mexico oil spill?’) Other things find their names right away, even when those names are not, technically speaking, correct.

Plans to build an Islamic cultural center and mosque a few blocks away from ground zero in New York have ignited a firestorm of indignation that borders on pure religious bigotry. (Source: The Rocky Mount Telegram)
Note: I totally agree with this. Some folks talk out of both sides of their mouths when it comes to what they want and what they don’t want others to have. I understand what happened in 1999 but how do you single out those folks who had nothing to do with it. I get so sick and tired of folks putting folks in certain categories just because. All black folks are not the same, nor white and other folks so we must judge folks as individuals. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher
