Apparently every word is now a racial slur
A Massachusetts police officer has been fired after shouting a "racial insult" at Boston Red Sox star Carl Crawford. The black outfielder was signing autographs before a game in New Hampshire when he was branded a "Monday" by a heckler in the stands. The comment was traced back to off-duty officer John Perreault. Apparently, the term "Monday" can be used as a racist statement towards African-Americans and in some cases is tantamount to calling them a "n*gg*r", according to the Urban Dictionary. It supposedly comes from the common dislike for the first day of the working week and is often used in the hope the abused person will not be aware it is an insult.
