OU prof equates "OK, Boomer" with the N-word, apologizes

If it's in historical context, that's completely ridiculous.


While I guess I agree, at the same time, either the prof:

a) didn't realize the furor this would cause

b) or didn't care, and chose to die on that particular hill


Either way, sooner gonna sooner

A history professor issued a "trigger warning" before reading a "historical document that used the 'N-word' repeatedly," the university's interim president, Joseph Harroz, Jr. wrote in an apology.

How is this any different from turning on a TV show that says "the following show contains strong language, viewer discretion advised" then getting offended when someone says the word fuck?

Yeah I don't quite get this one.  Unless there really wasn't a point for this particular document other than to give the reader a reason to say the n-word.  I can see that being the case, but otherwise these are college age students not 5th graders.
