Warrior Lacrosse, one of the sport’s preeminent equipment companies, recently ran a promotion in which it gave away pairs of its Dojo shoes to people who used the hashtag “Ninja Please.” …

“The actual meaning behind ‘Ninja Please’ is ‘the N-word Please,’” (Charlotte Hounds midfielder Jovan) Miller told WCNC. “They put ‘ninja’ in it to kind of disguise it.” …

So now it’s racist if people think you’re substituting a word for the N-word.

I’d hate to have to live in their heads for even 15 minutes.

If you’re looking for racism everywhere, you’ll find it.

You must be a ninja lover. I am more of a Kung fu fan. I wonder what hat means?

In order to substitute a word for the n-word, you first have to think of the n-word. You have to sound it out in your mind to find a suitable replacement, and THAT, well...

The Green Hornet TV Show is well known in Hollywood to be a racist slant toward the Japanese.

Racist "slur" against? Racist "slight" against?

Everybody knows that the word "slant" is racist!/s

Warrior is also a growing name in hockey.

A while ago they came out with a stick called the "Johnson" along with a pair of gloves called "Strokers"...

Bruce Lee, who played Kato in Green Hornet, was Chinese.

We ought to make folks say any word they are telling us not to use. There are a ton of “N-words” PCism needs to be squashed as it reduces the vocabulary, not be cause the words are offensive, or even that so many people find them offensive, but because the Left has discovered they can prey on faux guilt to control and marginalize the opposition.

lol...my wife and I say that (and “Peace ninja!”) frequently. But, we’ve got as asian son and two halfrican grandchildren, so we’re exempt from PC charges of racism.

I think that’s how it works anyway...

That is one of the most bigoted, supremacist, and hateful things I have heard in these last few moments.

These goobers must have a really messed up brain functions.

I am glad that I am not privy to their thought processes as it would have to be very weird.
