Add another word to the woke list of words that white people can no longer say in the presence of a black person.
A Dallas Morning News journalist was terminated for using the word “bruh.”
She made the mistake of answering the mayor of Dallas in a tweet using that word.
She was terminated three days later.
Johnson was criticizing another reporter’s story at the DMN, writing, “And as we’ve seen recently, if policing or crime stories don’t feed into a particular narrative, the national media has zero interest in them.
“If it doesn’t feed into our worst tribal instincts or show a city devolving into violent crime-ridden chaos, the media will not cover it.”
Meghan Mangrum responded, “Bruh, national news is always going to chase the trend.
“Cultivate relationships with quality local news partnerships.”
Johnson responded, “Bruh? Have we met?”
Mangrum was called into her boss’ office, who is also black, and asked her if she would have used that word with someone that is white.
That was a simple answer because her timeline is loaded with tweets calling everyone “bruh.”
D Magazine reported the story, stating, “Hardy, who is Black, asked her if she would have used the word ‘bruh’ if the mayor were White.
“Mangrum, who is White, said yes. Her Twitter feed is littered with the word ‘bruh’ directed at all sorts of accounts, including those belonging to hockey fans and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife.”
Mangrum added, “I would never tell a person of color, ‘Oh, it wasn’t racist. You shouldn’t feel that way’… But I know my intent, and it was not at all about race.
“I use that word with my friends and when I tweet about hockey. It’s just part of my vernacular.
“I grew up in Central Florida, and, you know, I’m a millennial.”
The woke world continues to chew people up and spit them out.
