Words have no power unless you give it to them. For example: Saying ‘Nigger’ doesn’t mean I hate people of African descent. Until the words “I hate black people” come out of my mouth, there is nothing on this Earth that should convince you I’m a racist. Saying you’re ‘offended’ means nothing. You are the master of your own ship, you choose whether something as insignificant as a single word controls how you think and act.
