Even if you find one, I doubt there's anything like a consensus of acceptance of it, they way there might be with respect to which fork one uses with salad.

Can anyone suggest to me where I might find a good and recent discussion of the etiquette concerning the use or non-use of the terms "African American," "black," "Black," "person of color," etc. ?
