P.s. Is ninja racist if the person isn't of Japanese descent?
It would definitely be racist if you ONLY use "ninja" when the person is of Japanese descent, that's for sure.

I was a little disappointed that they didn't talk about other races using the n word especially since Andrew could provide his own insight on Asians using the word.
I noticed that, too, and thought maybe they just didn't want to wade into those waters (is that a phrase...?). Even the caller pointed out his own Hispanic/Latino heritage but specified white people in a way that made me wonder if he felt comfortable using it, himself. It's a moot point if the caller was a robot, as robots cannot be blamed for their programmed speech.
