Word to be banished "RACIST" - people use it to describe anything said disparaging about anything and anybody from religion to obesity.
Funny thing is, there's only one human race left on the planet, homo sapiens. So unless you're out saying disparaging things about Neanderthals, you're not being racist :)
What we call a "race" is technically a subspecies of the race known as homo sapiens.
It's an emotionally supercharged word always used incorrectly, therefore it needs to be banished.
While you're at it, banish "whatever" too.
