“She was blacker then the ace of spades!” Grandma yelling this out the moment the black nurse leaves her room
I love my grandma but she posts some of the most racist and intolerant stuff on Facebook. I'm pretty sure if anyone in my family came out as gay she would stop acknowledging them as family. Still, I love her. She used to read me books when I was a child and when she and my grandpa would leave from a visit, they would leave a little gift in their room.
What’s wrong with a good racist joke every once in a while?
@Rowsdower, they're funny because it's wrong, but they're wrong for a reason.
@Proactive Citizenry , Words have meaning but you ought not let them have power over you.
@Kliment Voroshilov, good point, but also easy to say when few words were designed to denigrate you.
@Proactive Citizenry , just because it's a more difficult task for some doesn't invalidate the ideal.
@Kliment Voroshilov, you are correct. But we still should mind what we say to people in public.
