She then continues her story to her boyfriend with “not to be racist, but she was black.” Had my friend not been there I’m assuming she wouldn’t have started her sentence with “not to be racist, but…”

n a high school film class, we watched a student made film with problematic portrayals of disabled people and suicides (including in the credits naming a character who commits suicide “shooter mcgee”) as well as using the word “faggot” lightly and repeatedly.

That youtube thing appeared on Professor Turley's blog the other day and I just facepalmed. That's a very stupid person, and that's that. She isn't oppressing anybody, she's just being dumb.
