Why is it still insensitive if it has been altered for the explicit purpose of removing the offensive element?

I can't take these cars with me when I'm gone, and one day I'll be too old to enjoy them. And isn't that the American way, to sell to the highest bidder. My attitude is home grown, made in the USA.
