So if it's not racist then it's still potentially a perfectly valid scientific term. So why shouldn't it be usable? Lot's of things about science offend people, but that doesn't mean that it should bow to social pressure.

I see scientific ignorance and agenda-based tomfoolery.

Anyone else?

Ja, science totally comes from a place of Western bias.
The Batlord said that the word is not used as a racial slur because its a scientific word and I am telling him that it is. Just because it is a scientific word doesn't mean it has not been used as a racial slur.

Ja? You from D.C.?!?! lol

People might very easily misinterpret that as you flat out calling science racist.

If you were a minority and someone called you that, trust me baby you would not like it....

But there are certain aspects about Science that is racist especially old science that did not have a lot of research on diversity and multiculturalism.

If Batlord was a minority, people still wouldn't talk to him so I don't see your point.
