Liberal College Graduate Asks Merriam-Webster to Change Definition of Racism

what the shit2

As thousands march for justice across the country, one recent college graduate in St. Louis is using her voice in a different way.

“With everything going on, I think it’s really important that everyone is on the same page,” Kennedy Mitchum said.

The same page of the dictionary, that is.

Mitchum, who studied law, politics and society, said the issue came up after people would quote the verbatim definition of racism.

“A couple of weeks ago, I was like, ‘OK, this is the last argument I’m going to have about this,’” she said. “Like, I know what racism is, I’ve experienced it.”
