The police state speech police in this country can get pretty rough.
Where I used to work years ago, I walked up to a table full of my black friends to sit during a lunch break. One of them asked, “How’d you find us?” I replied, pulling out my phone, “I used my negro detector.” They got a good laugh out of it, though apparently they informed me it could be taken as racist by the wrong people. I had no clue. They still use it as an example of my insanity whenever they talk about me.
and so on.
So.... Technically then , the United Negro Colege Fund is actually a racist orginazation.
I’m gonna need a program to keep up
That was a niggardly reason to fire her.
#1. The word negro in English is not a slur.
#2. The word negro/negra in Spanish (pronounced NAY grow; NAY grah) means black as in the color (un sombrero negro, a black hat; tinta negra, black ink). It is also a term of endearment. It also refers to Black people.
#3. There is no perjorative racial word or slur for Black people in Spanish. There is no n word. To make a racial slur, you’d have to add an adjective, like ugly, evil, etc.
#4. The administrators at this school are illiterate and should be fired.
>>The word negro naturally came up because negro is the Spanish word for black.
Lucky for her she wasn’t teaching Latin, then she’d REALLY be in trouble. In Latin, ‘black’ = ‘niger’
Hey, at least she didn’t say “Macaca”.
What is Spanish for “Colored?”
A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
The multi-color crayon in spanish will now be referred to as ‘african american shade.’
For the love of Pete...
The truth is.. most blacks are not black they are brown..
Calling them black is an ERROR... some are even Tan..
How the hell else do you say black in Espanol?
I remember when they thought calling them black was an insult, they wanted to be called Negro at that time.
Perhaps the operative phrase in this story is “The non-tenured, 65 year old...”. She had to be fired before was there long enough to get a pension.
