Snowflakes in England

Officials at the University of York in the UK apologized to students after an English lecturer read aloud the word “negro” from black-authored source material. [...]

When the offended undergrads complained to English Department Chair Helen Smith, she responded with a letter of apology.

The Department Chair wrote about a content warning!

I am extremely sorry that this happened, and I have written to all staff in the department to make it clear that they should not pronounce racial slurs as part of their teaching and that if those words appear in texts or on PowerPoint slides, they should be prefaced with an appropriate content warning.

My humble content warning: To all you niggers and/or snowflakes who can't handle a few words, close your eyes and cover your ears for about one minute. Thanks!
