No offense, but whether you find it unnecessary or not depends on how far back you remember and where you lived. Until the 1960s it was extremely common to hear ethnic, racial, and sexual epithets used in everyday conversation, even on network television shows. .The workplace could be downright hostile for minorities and women, some nationalities, and those generally powerless to fight back. Finally, people decided they didn’t have to put up with that, and used financial means to stop it. Nothing speaks louder than money and votes..A course, politicians got involved and eventually made it all look foolish. But don’t ever forget that it was necessary. Talk to senior women, African Americans, eastern European ethnics, and homosexuals about those times. Learn real history from people who were there. .No offense. Life is absurd, and keeps me amused every day.
