PC term for refugee. Until the Katrina disaster, that word didn't even exist, but thanks to Jessie "hep me lawd" Jackson and Al "where's my comb" Sharpton, its now a new word in our vocabulary.
Joe: I hope those refugees don't come in my neighborhood.
Matt: We're supposed to call them evacuees.
Joe: Oh my bad.

A politically correct term for everyone from the New Orleans region. "Evacuee" became a mainstream term after Jesse Jackson complained about the term being used by the media.
Jesse Jackson: "These people are not refugees, they are Americans!"
news anchor again: I'm bad, the "evacuees" are out here in force in the Houston area!
