I think we should rid the English language of all words with double GG so as to stop this nonsense of implied racism.

To be unaware of the meaning of the word “niggling” is downright scary. It has nothing to do with race or skin color. Aren’t there enough real problems, without imagining racism where it wasn’t intended or present?

People who believe there was are the ones who need to take another look at themselves.

What is missing here is any explanation of why a major global news agency that prides itself in its objectivity would throw in words meant to jab someone’s race or whatever. What’s in it for us?

And Rave, by chance did you mean we’re and you’re?
