Oops! 9 Offensive Things You’re Saying Without Realizing

There is a fair possibility that the list of the most offensive words and phrases you have is filled with the usual suspects. But, it seems like there is always a new term or phrase that is offensive, or that someone is upset by something you previously believed to be acceptable.

Remember that it can also be exceptionally draining to constantly experience fear or hurt due to racist, discriminating, or just plain cruel comments. Even if you don’t feel awful about making a derogatory joke, it’s possible that someone else feels affected by it, and you might be the one who continues to cause them harm.

If someone gets offended by a remark you believe to be neutral, go over the conversation with empathy and try to understand them.

  1. what you are really saying is don’t speak truth as it might be too much for someone to handle. Unfortunately, saying someone is learning challenged is less offensive than the so called R-word? While we should be aware of peoples feelings, naming something something else or pretending something doesn’t exist doesn’t make it so. Stop it.

  2. Black Lives Matter is discriminatory and offensive to all others. It is exclusionary. The BLM organization is a bunch of scammers who used donations to buy expensive homes. The saying divides the races and implies that those of other races, many of which were discriminated against throughout the years, are of less value than black people. Martin Luther King’s entire message could be summed up by saying ALL people, regardless of color or ethnicity, should be evaluated on their character and NOT immutable characteristics. When we stop diving human beings by color and ethnicity, his dream will have been realized.
    In many countries, white people have been discriminated against and enslaved throughout history. So have people of every single color and ethnicity. Would you be as accepting of WHITE LIVES MATTER, or SPANISH LIVES MATTER? I doubt it. How about the Irish? Though they were not technically slaves, they were treated in the same manner and many of them came to the USA under ‘servitude’ contracts which were traded among ‘masters’. In many African countries, slavery of one type or other is still normal. And exactly who do you think ran most slave ships? African tribes captured and sold other black tribes to the mainly black slavers who sold other blacks to white masters. Look into the actual history. Read books written during that time…and then tell me those words are only proper when spoken about blacks.
