Calling things what they are is dangerous. Like all truths. Those who want to suppress meaningful language do so to cover up the truth.
Cue the AP.
“Limit use of the term Looting. Some have long viewed the word as carrying racial overtones. Sensitivity is heightened now in light of President Trump’s ‘looting and shooting’ tweet.”
Orange Man Bad defines our reality.
There are no racial overtones in the term, looting. The word, like “okay”, actually comes from India. And the Hindus probably weren’t referring to black people.
But what would the same media that banned the term “illegal alien” and replaced it with undocumented immigrants like us to call looters? Undocumented shoppers?
