A writer I know posted this article she wrote on Facebook—“racist expressions you should stop using.” First, she’s wrong about some of the word origins. Second, these writers/authors seem to be using this new idea that any phrase can be racist to control us. It also makes it very easy to retroactively cancel an author. I’m sure you could go through my books and find some phrase that is now “racist” or a “micro aggression.” My only solace was reading the comments section.
