Fox’s Bill Hemmer: “I mean as a white American, my entire life I know that this is an electric word. And you stay away from it. … This is something that we thought was entirely off-limits and now you have the President using it.”
Using the word to talk about the word is not the same as using towards someone or an entire race.
That the shiny ball Fox is following is the President using a word to illustrate a problem in a very generic sense instead of the 9 dead African Americans killed by a White Supremacist is very telling.
