Quote: "What have Germans learnt in the last 60 years? Live and let live or not? Give the guy a break or get rid of all contentious material. As a black woman I demand you get rid of this derogatory entry. https://dict.leo.org/?lp=ende&l
How dare you all passively support racism by allowing such a term (follow link) in the dictionary?
Be a Mensch, relax, breath in, breath out.... And don't remove the links/posts. Discrimination against ideas is a bad move. Don't start 'burning books' here."
Sorry, but I find your statement simply ridiculous!
A dictionary won't teach you words, you already have to know a word before you can look it up. (Tell me, how come YOU had the urge to look it up in the first place??)
If words are used, they ought to be included in a dictionary for the sake of completeness. Besides, it has the "indication of usage" (pej.), i.e. perojative (abwertend).
Talking about using, how come many Afro-American call each other "Nigger"?!? ...guess they learned it at leo.org?
And, if the term in question happened to be NOT in this dictionary, and you looked it up (as you did), I wonder what your reaction as a "black woman" would have been. ("racistic denial"?)
And as for "not starting burning books, links/posts and ideas", this begins by not burning WORDS!
Stick to your own advice... and relax!
