Racial Slurs

Do you think racial slurs make people sound ignorant? I have always hated hearing them no matter what.

  • Yes they do. Anyone that uses a racial slur is guilty of being ignorant and vulgar.

  • I find them jarring, in any situation. I dislike them, whether it is a slur or pejorative for a race other than theirs or for their own.

    Pejorative words and phrases for other races definitely color my opinion (no pun intended) of the person speaking, and discount the rest of what they are saying.

  • The slurs themselves? No, not really.


    The content that goes along with the slurs? Sure, that can make some sound ignorant.

  • No, of course not. It's my understanding that their best friend is a member of whatever race they're slurring, so they get a pass.
