Ladies of The Talk- Are You Listening?
Monday Mini Rant:
So, the ladies of The Talk took time today to discuss at length Paula Dean’s wrongful and on-going use of the N word, as they should. Kudos for that conversation.
But, the gals uttered not one single word when guest Felicity Huffman said the word retarded on their program weeks ago, even though Huffman immediately apologized for her indiscretion.
This slur impacts millions of individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families worldwide.
It, too, keeps ugly, outdated stereotypes alive and gets in the way of education, job opportunities and a better life. The r-word, too, is worthy of discussion.
So, let’s get talkin, ladies.
