If I did not choose the most derogatory slur for each group, again I must apologize and please politically uncorrect me.

When it comes down to it, what are these slurs really? When spoken, they are just sound waves vibrating molecules that are assigned significance by the person hearing them. When written, they are merely straight and curved lines that form letters that form words that are abstract symbols given meaning by the person viewing them. If every individual in every group were intelligent, tolerant, enlightened beings, we could all be calling each other slurs and it would not be a problem. It would be like two buddies ribbing each other. However, individuals take themselves and identification with their group way too seriously and are way too sensitive.

In the spirit of true diversity, it is extremely important that people honor and preserve their cultural heritage, ethnic uniqueness and the contributions of their ancestors, particularly in societies that have developed a high-degree of cohesiveness, functionality and harmony. With that said, it is naively Utopian to expect groups of people who look different, speak different languages, have contradictory views and no interest in assimilating to happily coexist in the same place without conflict. Even with family members, it can be challenging at times to keep things harmonious.

Tribes should respect each other when respect is due and work together to depose the tribes that belligerently seek to deceive and corrupt others for their own gain. When it comes to self-preservation, there is nothing wrong with setting boundaries to prevent intermingling with other tribes that are going to be confrontational. The fact that all of these slurs exist is evidence that people are tribal and tend to dislike the way other tribes do what they do.

When are slurs useful?

1. Slurs can be useful for focusing hatred towards groups of corrupt individuals who are committing atrocities against other humans with no regard for the suffering they are causing. Hatred and anger are natural, built-in emotions with the effect of motivating people to take action against injustice and put a stop to abuse. Like any weapon that cuts both ways, these emotions need to be wielded with honor, moral fortitude and precision. Of course, it should be remembered that not every individual who could be labeled as a member of a group is responsible for or wants to have anything to do with the evils committed by that group.

2. If someone refers to me with a slur or insult, it is an opportunity to self-reflect. If there is something about my conduct that is inappropriate, I want to know about it so I can make the proper adjustments. On the other hand, if a slur was dealt out of ignorance or emotional shortcomings, I can choose to react to it like the air absorbing blows from an immature child lashing out at the wind. This becomes an exercise in appropriate self-restraint. It is a waste of time and energy to get in a fight, perhaps risking life and limb, with a name-calling ignoramus.
