“Thats racist” has become just like the “N” word. The “N” word is a word that many people use freely nowadays. Back in the day, this word was used toward slaves by their owners and now people, white or black, use it in their everyday vocabulary to substitute words like “bro” and “dude”. It’s been used so freely that people don’t even look at it the way it was used many years ago. For some folks it has the same meaning as it did many years ago, and for many it doesn’t. I think the only time this word should be taken seriously is when it’s used in a hostile manner. Unless someone is being singled out with the use of this word, then it shouldn’t be taken so offensively as some people find it to be. In this clip, I agree with Tyler when he says that people who still care is the reason why racism continues. We can’t forget what happened but if you think like that each time someone says the “N’ word, when it’s not meant in a harmful manner, “that’s how you keep racism alive”, as Tyler said. Where once it was insulting, it is now a part of our everyday conversation.
