Have We Honestly Gotten To This Point?
A Professor at USC was just suspended for “saying a word that sounds like the n-word in lecture”. To give context to this, he was teaching a communications course and was explaining how words can be used as filler in language. In English we use the word “that”, then he gave the example that in China they use the word “nei gr” which of course sounds like the n word, but it isn’t. Black students were offended and wrote a letter to the school saying he was using slurs in class and got him removed. What the fuck?
Also, a middle eastern woman on tiktok is getting hate and death threats for her name, which also sounds like the nword. But it’s a word in her language that represents something like kindness or something (if someone has more information I’d appreciate it, I can’t remember). She gets hate for telling her followers that she isn’t ashamed of her own name.
PC culture has gone too far, we have to stop imposing our will on other people.
