Refrain From This Name

July 10, 1988

Horace Sutton reports in "Brash Sydney Flaunts the Good Life" (June 26) that Australian aborigines are often called "abos." True, but the term may be considered derogatory. Better to say, "aboriginal" (as an adjective or noun). Some call themselves "Koori," but immigrants may not know the name yet.
