“Being an English speaker doesn’t entail that you necessarily know the racist etymology automatically. The fact that you said it, oblivious to the etymology, doesn’t automatically make you a bad person. As language users, we have the social responsibility to monitor the impact our utterances have on others, especially when it involves a marginalized group.” – Ai Taniguchi, a linguist and an associate language studies professor with University of Toronto Mississauga.
