I totally get what you mean about saying that word to fat people. But at the same time, I feel like one of the roots of the problem is people put too much emphasis on the word usage I think. I supposed the nigger is a bit different because they have another word for it, which is black and nigger probably has a different connotation to it (unless said by black people). But black people are black people and I have met so many who are super proud of being black and don’t mind being called black.

But you’re right. Us, each and every one of us need to make more effort to rid society of this thought of us and them and replace it with we (got it from reading the book called Sapiens and I can’t agree more).

Thank you so much for reading and for the thoughtful comment, Chris! Always good to see you here. Looking forward to read your next piece :)
