Another timely entry regarding the R-Word/Tropic Thunder furor. Check out Maria Shriver’s Sunday essay in the Los Angles Times and add your own words to the debate. The fact that so many people don’t get what the argument is all about, just proves how much our voices need to be heard, and how far we still have to go. This isn’t about political correctness; it’s about human dignity and equality for millions of people worldwide. Words DO hurt, especially when MISused.
Well said, Maria.
