I was creeping my son’s Facebook page the other day (I reserved the right to access his Facebook at anytime when I allowed him to have it so it’s not nearly as intrusive as it sounds) when I stumbled upon a message from one of his classmates.
This classmate, a 13-year-old Caucasian girl from our small-town in Ontario, Canada chose to close her message like this “pce real nigga“.
Maybe I’m out of touch with the young people’s vernacular, but I’d like to know when the use of such a derogatory term became main stream and socially acceptable?? Are we encouraging our youth to describe one another by using offensive language? Should I advise others to refer to me as a “dumb broad” or a “dirty mick” (my ancestors are Irish and Scottish) because that’s the “new normal”?.
I’m a little concerned about the next generation, but that’s nothing new.
