Ok I’m not sure if this will get any traction, but excuse me for a second to provide some context.
I was recently scolded publicly for the use of the word “Oriental”, when describing a type of food, Vaguely I might add, and with no negative connotation whatsoever. I was wondering if this happens to any other Infowarriors. I recently watched an Aziz Ansari comic bit where a crotchety old woman is considered racist for referring to Asian people as “Oriental”. Which I would agree probably wouldnt be a good look. But seriously the viture signaling involved for someone to berate another human over the albeit casual use of a risky(?) term.
I think it is an intrusion into someone free thought in the form of casual speech, and then questioning their morality. It’s too much. Maybe I’m wrong, just my thoughts.
Am I supposed to believe this is racist?
