If you could permanently ban a word from general usage, which one would it be? Why?
A word I’d ban today would be “racist.” That word has been stretched and pulled beyond its original purpose and made into a kind of joke which any joe-blow can throw out when they want to throw a tantrum upon having their unjustified feelings hurt for something someone they don’t even know, that has nothing to do with them ..said.
Everyone today is a racist. The simple name calling “bitch” is racist. “A-hole” is racist. Any bad word that a person uses against another is “racist.” A bad name is a bad name it doesn’t mater what it is and who it’s towards, it’s wrong and immature and since every single one of us each come from a different race…..all bad names are racist.
