I'm not saying he should be fired for one mistake but I think he should be made aware that it is unacceptable to use these terms in 2010. My father was a straight up racist to I had to teach myself that calling a Brazil Nut a N***** Toe was not correct even though it was what I heard all my life. Fixing your car with a paper clip is not n***** rigging it. etc. To me those were everyday terms that I was taught as a kid and I didn't think of black people when I heard it, it was accepted as a proper description. Part of growing up and becoming an individual and an adult is learning ON YOUR OWN what is right and wrong and not accepting what is fed to you, even by your own parents.
