University condemns comparison of ’OK, Boomer’ to N-word by professor

University of Oklahoma denounced a journalism professor who told a class of students that calling someone a boomer was like calling someone the n-word. Peter Gade used the slur while discussing how journalism should keep to traditional practices when a student said journalists should work to keep up with younger generations. Gade said that their response was akin to telling him ’OK Boomer.’

Being black or old or gay or female or mexican or white doesn't make you special. Everyone is equal. No one little sect gets to use a bigoted word and say nobody else can. Get over yourselves 'special' people. Get over being butthurt over words. Be tougher.

I disagree with his point, I think that it is as stupid as that time Chris Cuomo's said that fake news was like the n-word to reporters. Whether or not someone should face disciplinary action for using the word should depend on the context of which it was used. If he called a student a nigger he should be fired just like if a black professor belittled a white student because of the color of his skin they should be fired. This Guy, though his point is stupid and invalid has done nothing wrong. Regardless, if it is okay for a black person to say Nigger than it is okay for a white person to say Nigger, anyone that thinks a white person cant say nigger but a black person can is supporting racial segregation which we should all find wrong regardless of skin color.

Well if all the boomers would stop thinking the Soviet Union still exists, that weed is the devil, and the internet should be controlled then I'll call 'em boomers for the rest of their lives. We have way too many decrepit old shits in our government anyway I submit Joe Biden as empirical evidence
