Jesse Kline: CBC's 18 words you can't say is the dumbest thing I've ever heard

National Post: "On Monday, the CBC published an opinion piece masquerading as news copy, which informs us that many commonly used words and phrases “can be hurtful to various groups of people,” and should therefore be removed “from your daily lingo.” So there could be no confusion about which words should be expunged from our vocabularies, the article included a handy word cloud listing all the supposedly repugnant and racist phrases in bold, colourful letters.

"Top of the list: anything that includes the root word “black.” According to the CBC’s “readers and some of our journalists who are Black, Indigenous and people of colour,” words like “blackmail” and phrases like “black sheep” should be placed on the proverbial blacklist — except we can’t use that term, either."
