I hear now the board that’s used in a classroom can’t be called a black board or a white board. From what I understand, it’s derogatory to blacks or to whites if you use that kind of descriptive words – it’s either chalk board or marker board.
I guess it’s a good thing that there’s not anyone that might be traumatized by the use of the words chalk or marker.
I don’t know what you would call the boards then.

A few years back, when moving the blog location, I lost many of my older blog posts and images. Recently, while exploring the Internet Archive WayBackMachine, I discovered much of what I had lost. I’ll be restoring the lost material and will share some of the better “recovered blog posts.”
