Over the past few years, popular phrases have been modified or canceled to appease the cancel culture mob. The latest victims are words like “aloha” and “shalom.”
USA Today posed this question in one of their articles: “Is it time to stop saying ‘aloha’ and other culturally sensitive words out of context?”
The author of the article, David Oliver, went on to say that just because you can say these phrases in certain social scenarios, it doesn’t mean that you should.
For example, he argued that if you’re not of the Hawaiian culture and you use the word “aloha,” that “it could come off as mockery.” Also, you must have “education, knowledge and the foresight” to know when and when to not use these words.
He specifically pointed out other popular phrases such as “shalom” and “ni hao” as potential problems, especially if you’re using a fake accent when you say them.
According to the staff at USA Today, white folks should just stick to phrases like “hello” and “goodbye” next time they see a friend.
