#210898 - 05/13/13 08:46 AM Terms that appear offensive but aren't
"While you may not be offended, this week's words did offend some enough to prompt them to cancel their subscriptions."
I applaud Anu for not shying away from these words and subjects. Those who cancelled their subscriptions are proverbially cutting off their noses to spite their faces and their days will be less enlightened. Words are what they are and to not explore them and their history at the risk of seeming racist or politically incorrect is to not learn and grow from the heritage and history of our languages.
