    I just don't think that he as a white person should dictate what poc should be offended by. Saying a racial slur is just a word, that's the moment I knew, that guy fucked up big time.

    I'm not saying they shouldn't speak about it, but he's literally saying that a racial slur is just a word. That's a problem for me at least.

    It's just vibrations in your throat that create waves that your ear can receive that our brain constructs into sound, these sounds are manmade into words and these words have man-given meaning. How are certain vibrations you make racist?

    Obviously you're ignoring the history that comes with the "Vibrations". Imo, if you're not POC, then you don't get to tell POC what to be offended about, or say that a word that has plagued generations of POC is just a word. That's justs my two cents. Only Issue with banks is that he refuses to accept that he's wrong in the situation. Take a look at his tweets.

    It's not just a 'person of colour' that gets to be offended, you're telling people to be offended or not about someone being offended, i find this offensive so you are.

    It's fine to take offense to things, but actively attacking people over these things and limiting the things they can say is not.
    "white people can't say nigger!". kden.

    A word so strong to plague an entire race? Wow, how very progressive, humanity is. Also, referring the rest of the world as POC while leaving white people out is probably the most retarded shit I've heard.

    You throw on that hard 'er' and things quickly become awkward~
    As a colored person I don't really care if someone uses the word unless they're using it offensively. Then it becomes like any other insult tho on the more immoral end of the spectrum.

    Well, yea, mere words have given and taken lives throughout the ages.
    Hard to be progressive when there are other people holdin you down.. y'know, racism is still a thing. Just ignoring it probably won't make it go away, so clear distinctions are made and action is taken. People are prone to make mountains outta molehills but that in itself has its use.

    It sorta promotes segregation as I see it, but it definitely has its uses; namely, distinguishing between people in a handy manner
