    in the instant before the anger, a stab of pain happens, when someone smears my group.

    I'm also a woman. When a man calls a woman the C-word say (something that lands as a smear to all women, at least on me), for a second I feel a pang before the anger.

    The reason why we are "Politically Correct" is that these words when they denigrate people, hurt.

    It is hard for me to imagine that for some African American people in that town, reading that this public figure used the N word must have caused a pang of hurt at least.
