“Even funnier would have been your sampling everyones lunches, and then saying:
Hey, lets not be niggardly with the fries!
No? Welcome to FR, etc., btw.”
lol, pretty sure that wouldn’t have worked for me.
Search: ‘Lenny Bruce and the word nigger’. He tried to argue that if we used the word like socialists (over) used the word ‘fascist’ it would lose its ability to hurt others.
George Orwell wrote that eventually fascist lost any real meaning among some groups and eventually came to mean something unpleasant or undesirable, e.g. “That fascist waiter stuck his thumb in my soup!”
Of course, Bruce died with his pants around his ankles and a needle in his arm. So never mind.
