    ^^^I am Black. I know exactly why it is offensive. If it occurred in a program I worked with, I know exactly how I'd handle it. But it's not in my control.


    So I can't waste my energy dragging strangers online about it, nor do I see the value in other people doing so. I am far more concerned about our elected officials and their viewpoints toward POCs, inequity in schools, etc. Things that impact my daily life and that of my family.

    I'm fine with anyone using that word being dragged for that - by people with real names who need to be accountable for their own actions if they are going to go after others.

    I can’t get behind shaming anyone (gym or individual) from behind an anonymous screen. You haven’t educated anyone by doing it that way, you are merely putting them on the defensive.
