Unless you have been unfortunate enough (or possibly fortunate?) to be disconnected from the internet over the weekend, chances are you've at least heard of YouTube video game celebrity Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg who goes by the name Pewdiepie, using a racial slur during a streaming session. The reaction to this has been mixed to say the least. It ranges from calling him a racist and demanding his channel be pulled to saying there's nothing wrong with using the N word and that everyone does it. The latter line of thinking is bad enough but the centrist point of view that he's not a racist, just an asshole who made a mistake is an even more dangerous line of thinking.
