Instead of pursuing disciplinary action, a student at the College of the Desert challenged his professor in a viral class presentation which argued that her use of the word in a lecture was not justified.
In addition to Smith College, Emory University, Augsburg University, Southern Connecticut State University and Simpson College all suspended professors in 2019 over referring to the word "nigger" by name in an educational context. In two other cases, a professor at Princeton decided to stop teaching a course on hate speech after students protested his utterance of "nigger" and a professor at DePaul had his law course cancelled after 80% of the enrolled students transferred out.

Is inflation a depreciation effect? Is the issue with our current system interest?

I occasionally troll. If you think I'm doing it, please call me out on it. I don't want to be a troll.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
