SACO, emphases theirs
Red meat processing plants
LCSH practice has been to conflate “red meat” with “meat,” and the meeting chose to retain that practice. The existing heading Packing-houses should be assigned to the work cat. An upward reference from Red meat processing plants will be added to the existing heading Packing-houses. The proposal was not approved.
I love people that are all holier than thou about not eating red meat. Or fish. Flesh is flesh, people! Anyway, LC, I support this decision. You're welcome.
DEMOGRAPHIC GROUP TERMS
Palestinian Arabs are not the same as Palestinians, since Christians and Muslims also live in Palestine. LCDGT general policy is that if an ethnic group is also the demonym for a country, the term is included as a national/regional group. Due to the sensitivity of this particular location, though, separate headings for Palestinians as a national/regional group and Palestinian Arabs as an ethnic group are advisable. The proposal may be resubmitted.
I'm confused about this. It seems from the documentation that nationalities are eligible for group terms. Is it an issue that there are Canadians of different religions and ethnicities? Or is "sensitivity" causing SACO to be nonsensical? Maybe Adam or Netanel will help me understand?

450 UF Bisexual women, African American

I thought they'd started to say Black. So there's still no way to describe bisexuals of, say, Haitian descent?

Did anyone else read that at first as Alter Kocker (old fart)? If not, you must not have an Ashkenazi Jewish grandfather or uncle. I can't believe Americans revere Jewish humor.
Alter kocker thong. that's right. Photo from CafePress.

Is the 681 the only way you know they're not referring to people from India? What about indigenous people from India? Thanks, Columbus!

550 BT Men
680 Here are entered general works on indigenous men, not limited to a particular racial or ethnic group. Works limited to indigenous men of a particular racial or ethnic group are entered under the heading for men of that group, e.g., Indian men; Gullah men.
I could complain about this heading, too, but you know, part of the problem is that our language is deeply coded in bigotry.

I'm sure people with Autism love to be summed up by one aspect of their identity like this, as do their parents.
Strangely, this photo is said to come from a Facebook group: Single Mothers Who Have Children with Autism (not …Mothers of Autistic Children, mind you)
