Been hearing a lot of this story, but this was the first time I really looked into it:
A Massachusetts mayor has fired a police officer accused of directing a racial slur at Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford during a baseball game….Perrault has been on paid leave since he called Crawford a “Monday” before a July 5 minor league game in Manchester, N.H.
The word is considered a racial slur when associated with the phrase, “I hate Mondays.”
So wait…I hate Mondays too…does that make me a racist? What the hell am I missing here? I’ve heard a LOT of imaginative racial slurs but I’ve never heard this one. Urban Dictionary has it…but really?
This really stinks of Thought Police to me…
