Oh, and having consequences for using fowl language is not even close to persecution. How clueless is that statement? You can control what comes out of your mouth, but the people she is referring to cannot control how they were born. Persecution is things like being property of others, being denied education, being denied employment, being denied voting in a democracy, and even suffering things like lower wages for the same work. Being told not to use the N word in pleasant or professional conversation is not even close to persecution. It is not a requirement for being a white southern lady to say the N word. You have no clue what real persecution is, and you look quite silly for even trying to claim not being allowed to say the N word is even close to real persecution.
