Comedian Josh Denny shared his thoughts on the English vocabulary to Twitter and let’s just say things didn’t go over as he might of thought. Denny attempted to make the correlation with the N-word to the phrase, “straight white male”
“Straight White Male” has become this century’s N-Word. It’s used to offend and diminish the recipient based on assumption and bias. No difference in the usage.

This didn’t bode well for Denny as Twitter proceeded to attack his mentions and provide responses refuting the comparison. This just appears to be another case of Denny using his white privilege to minimize the harm the n-word has created in society towards minorities. As usual Twitter exposed Denny’s past tweets which one can simply come to the conclusion that the comedian is in fact racist.
