Collinsia heterophylla

Chinese Houses (Collinsia heterophylla along Highway 140 and the Merced River.

I guess I don't understand why "Digger Pine" is perjorative, and "Chinese House" is not. Maybe, political correctness is stronger for some cultures than others, or maybe the dominant culture has a stonger sense of guilt about some minority cultures than others.
