Scrabble Is Now Banning Racial Slurs & Offensive Words

Scrabble is now removing over 200 words from their competition dictionary.

The North America Scrabble Players Association has done this in light of Black Lives Matter protests. In the newsletter, it stated:

"It is not hard to unlearn 238 words (including inflections), none of which are high-probability, and all of which have offensive meanings that are easy to remember. Top-level players are occasionally called upon to do this already, to prevent offensive words from being broadcast or streamed."

What do you think of this?
