    I want to thank the writer for this article, and I agree with her. We do have to choose our words wisely. We'll have a generation of young brown and black boys and men walking around confused and defined like no other.

    A powerful reminder to all about the impact of the words we use. It's interesting, and can be very challenging, to think about words and terms that are used by "definers" but not the "defined." Thanks for sharing this!
