    The difference between black and nigger is, if you're signalling if you are an ally or not. You're signalling what team you are on. So now when being a racist is out of fashion, what happens. Racists...

    Exactly. You put your finger on it. Instead of retarded we say mentally challenged. But everybody hears retarded when we say mentally challenged. It's a pointless exercise. It's virtue signalling....

    My understanding is that this isn't being done to lessen the effects of racism, it's being done in an effort to be more inclusive of people of colour.
