I recently found this website and thought that some of you might get a kick out of it. Their main focus has to do with using bad words. In their infinite wisdom they have decided that the word “illegal” is as bad as calling someone the dreaded N-word! I’m not kidding either. This entire website is devoted to doing away with the word “ILLEGAL” forevermore.
P.S. You can even go there and sign a petition to “drop the i-word”. I’m not kidding.
You wouldn’t call someone a w*tback, or the n-word. Saying “illegals” is just as bad.
The I-Word creates an environment of hate by exploiting racial fear and economic anxiety, creating an easy scapegoat for complex issues, and OK-ing violence against those labeled with the word.
People are not illegal. Let’s stop feeding the hate machine. Drop the I-Word.
