When It's Acceptable To Use Derogatory Terms
With global equality for all finally coming afters thousands of years, I can see why some might be against derogatory terms. Although, the way I see it, the time for using these words as a way to express hate is long gone. Take a walk down the halls of any high school in North America and I can almost guarantee you'll hear words like "faggot" and "nigger". I think the reason behind this is because kids don't really realize where these words stemmed from, they think its just a word you use when your friends are annoying you or you are mocking a rap song. Some may argue, but I believe that we live in a pretty accepting society. When we say these words that were formerly used as hateful terms we don't say them in a racist or discriminatory way. I think it is time for society to adopt these terms as a new meaning, a less hateful meaning.
