I'm getting really sick and tired of what our world is becoming. This is no different than claiming "Y'all" is racist as well.
This # won't stop until people/companies stop cow-towing to every single person who gets offended. There mere fact that they're ruining cartoons now by changing all the voice-actors with people who match the color of the character is more proof of it. There's no way any person can sound like Cleveland from Family Guy, but he's no longer doing the role.
There are times I'm tempted to try a trend where any person not hispanic caught eating mexican food is racist, just to see if I can get people to stop eating mexican food. I mean, they've already gotten certain white owners to shut down their taco stands, might as well take it one step further.

Will we soon be referring to the color of snow as 'off black' ?

It makes one wonder how many times each day White people are judged "racist" for saying something that has absolutely no racial connotations to them, but the Black person has been taught it's "coded" racism or some kind of "dog whistle".

I am still trying to get my head around this. I have never considered that the phrase “street smarts” was racially charged. I will have to share this with everyone I know so they won’t accidentally use this term and wind up getting fired.
