Subject: Re: PC Dictionaries?the N word? racism? race?
The origin of all the derogatories that we all are so familiar with of
course then stems back to the word race itself. Was this word just
a convenient development to set up slavery in this country? or did it have
other meanings before this? I doubt it. However just the emotions that
have been aroused from this discussion is proof that racism is not a thing
fo the past and that it is still thriving as a meaningful and integral
part of this country.
I say take the word race out the dictionary and the rest will follow.
Not a solution but only a theory.
