The Lexicon Has Changed at Lenox Street

This just in the new euphemism for African American is “Elegant.” Thanks to Sean Penn's acceptance speech last night millions of white liberals will be calling their black co-workers elegant. In Mr. Penn's thank you speech he said, “I'm proud to live in a country where we've voted an elegant man president.”

In other news I learned last night that my new apartment is not in the up and coming neighborhood of Prospect Lefferts Gardens but located in the more "Elegant" neighborhood of Flatbush. This neighborhood wasn't always elegant. Turns out my 91 year old grandmother lived here in her youth. But back then the neighborhood was much more “hollywood” or what white liberals of the time (all two of them) called them graceful.
