Oh Dixie, it gets more ridiculous. Words and phrases you may want to think twice about using | CBC NewsEverything else is so why not rain? Just read a piece about Washington State University declaring that Farmer's Markets, the Food supply (food banks) & Charities are racist as well. So hell, lets just all declare EVERYTHING IS RACIST and get on with our lives.
In this article some fuck-wit goes on about studying the etymology of words. But then he and the article forget all ab out that when they include phrases like "black sheep". The term had fuck all to do with race. Initially it had everything to do with sheep. Ultimately it became a way to describe the odd duck in a family. The term has never been about race. The argument seems to be that "black" is filled with all kinds of negative connotations. If that's the case just get rid of the word 'black' altogether.
Fuck man, the term 'black hole' is being called racist.
The western world is getting fucking dumber by the hour.
