Language Matters

We have a responsibility to be aware; take action.

Can you relate to any of these?

  • Your brother consistently makes anti-Semitic comments. 
  • Your neighbor uses the N-word in casual conversation. 
  • Your co-worker ribs you about your Italian last name, asking if you're in the mafia. 
  • Your classmate insults something by saying, "That's so gay" or "That's so retarded." 
  • You laugh along uncomfortably and stand there thinking, "What can I say in response to that?"  You may even walk away frustrated and angry, without saying anything, thinking regrettably later, that you should have.
