Your enthusiasm for using terms considered racist is your own business, but I would appreciate it if you did not assume that we all share similar feelings.

The term is considered racist in the UK, and much of the English-speaking world. That's not "political correctness," that's called "making an effort not to sound racist." Language evolves (just as terms that were not considered racial epithets in the US fifty years ago are now, or are considered to be in very poor taste).

Furthermore, our moderators have asked us to refrain from using that word, so let's cooperate.

“Political correctness” means “showing respect to others”.

If you can’t do that, maybe you don’t belong here.

Well this thread devolved hasn't it..

I agree with much of what has been said but can we get back to piping now before this winds up in worse political Brexit/Trump territory?

You might try asking Ringo Bowen at The Bagpipe Museum. He could probably enlighten us just from the photos you've already shown us.
