What’s delusional is doing the same thing over and over yet expecting different results. Sadly that’s where we are at right now.It was unacceptable and not mainstream or common through music from 1970 to at least 90s rap and the word never disappeared. What slur has actually ever disappeared? This is very delusional. This thread isn’t even about a white person wanting to use it. It is about a white person actually using it in front of black players & coaches. If it wasn’t something they shouldn’t be offended by then why the most of the players and all of the black coaches quit. There is no reason a white person should use the word. I can’t believe this thread is this long because people are upset that someone faced consequences for using the word. I’m black & don’t use the word. I also know better than use terms or slurs that would be offensive in other groups because I wouldn’t want to face consequences or offend anyone. If I slipped up, I know I would face similar repercussions as Flom.
Edit: I’ll also add that if that word wasn’t so common place in certain cultures the coach likely wouldn’t have used it at all. I think there is a lesson in that.
