Chris Bosh Wants All Slurs Banned From NBA
I understand what Bosh is saying.
If you are going to ban the word Nigger, you have to be sensitive to all other slurs. Here is what Bosh had to say about the hot topic of penalizing athletes for slurs.
Bosh, who is black, said he hears the N-word used by players during games and that it creates uncomfortable situations, although he says it’s used primarily “in a friendly” way.
“It’s a very tough situation,” Bosh said of the prospect of penalizing the use of the N-word. “If that’s the case, they should ban all slurs. And I know it’s a big deal, because I think that word is used too much, especially in the mainstream nowadays.”
“Well, what if I say this? There are a bunch of other [offensive] things I could say and not get a penalty. I think if we’re going to bring one thing in, I think we’ve got to put them all in the hat. And I think that’ll work out [better].”
Hard to disagree with that.
