Yeah she doesn't like the name "white out" and says so from behind the safe wall of "Black Space Winnipeg"

Literally calling a word...racist/unsafe.

Just bizarre.

Its the Age of Outrage. If you can find something to be angry about, you have a platform.

There are bigger issues and broader concerns that could use the press.

People like that just don't want anyone to be happy until there are no more social injustices anywhere in the world. Seriously, you can't separate the meaning of Whiteout? That says more about YOU, lady, than it does about anyone else.

She's literally choosing to be offended. That doesn't count in my books

I guess every weather report mentioning the result of a snowstorm is also banned now.

To get back on track, I hope the Jets pull through this one.

She's pleased the issue has become such a firestorm because "hopefully, this will get people to think in a new way."
I don't think she realizes this is not the best way to get people to think in a new way. Once subjected to noise like this over a period of time people will start to tune it out which is the exact opposite of that they think they are accomplishing.

Reading here original post on Facebook, I think Potashnik was most triggered by the rather incredible editorial oversight of the Winnipeg Free Press to add the headline to Ryan Thorpe's 1 April article "Jets Parties Will Turn Downtown White Again."

It is honestly an unfortunate oversight, but people should be neither surprised nor outraged that some will take offence to this. Our brains are pattern-recognition machines, and with emotions attached then these sorts of things are bound to happen from time to time.

As a lifelong hater of anything and everything Jets...i hope they get swept.

It's not oversight. It's opportunism.

The oversight is in the article's headline.

And yet a couple seconds of critical thinking...

I know it's too hard to ask of the current generation.

Somehow these kids are making it through University. To me this is elementary English comprehension. I doubt she is that illiterate so she is just using this to get her name out there and her group. There was a student who wanted the Nashville Predators to change their name to Sabrecats. Google it I won't post it here as to to not derail the thread.

As someone who teaches critical thinking for a living, it is unfortunately not just that simple.

Yeah, it's English, and it's meaning is completely obvious, but in the current political and social climate "turn downtown white again" is utterly tone deaf.
