Some of this difference may be regional. Here in Austin I've never heard
an objection or confusion about the term Anglo (even from my Cajun
husband who sometimes calls non-cajuns 'white people'), but then it tends
to be used in clear and limited contexts.
P.S. to my previous post:
Part of the tongue in cheek sarcasm of "political correctness" is that the
only "minority" left which is politically acceptable to pick on IS "white
people," hence anyone who has any claim to being non-white can opt out
of "whiteness" to take shots, yet still have the luxury of going to the
country club and "passing." It's the cheap thrill of the 90's.
