Language is an interesting topic. We have discussed it on Flash Past more than once. See Idioms and Word Play and Cliches, too. One aspect of common parlance that we haven’t discussed is racist terms. Now, don’t worry, we’re not going into a racist tirade on this podcast. In this episode of Flash Past, Lyle and Dan discuss common terms that seem innocuous enough, but have racist origins.
Before the show we asked the audience on Facebook to make suggestions of terms they thought had racist origins. Unfortunately, most of you mistook our request and suggested actual racist terms. Now, this may be a future topic…the origin of those terms. Maybe not.
