If you feel like literally everything these days is being called, “racist,” you’re not alone. For one teenage girl, a dog’s named turned into a Twitter battle for the social justice warriors.
According to Metro, a teenage girl in Detroit, who’s originally from Mexico and speaks Spanish, took to Twitter to announce that her dog was lost. She wrote, “Negro is missing. Please if anyone sees him message me!!!”
“Negro,” in case you didn’t know is Spanish for the word “black.” If you just look at the dog, you would see that the dog is, in fact, black. But of course, liberals see race in everything, and immediately took to Twitter to announce their disdain towards this teenager.
I hope you never find your dog.

Some posts actually suggested the young woman’s life was in danger.
As the International Business Times pointed out, “in one post, the dog’s owner was advised not to shout out the dog’s name while searching for him on the street for her own safety.”
But not everyone was so considerate.
You knew what you did by calling your dog that. Hold that L

One Twitter user even appeared to suggest that someone should change the Spanish word altogether.
First of all the fact that negro is used in Spanish as a color is racist asf. The end https://t.co/JSZhtkqWAx

Other Twitter users have come to her defense though. Many wished her luck in finding her pet, while others criticized the ones who somehow found a race issue in the tweet.
It's obvious half of the people in the thread failed Spanish 101.

Luckily, this story has a happy ending. The dog finally made it back to its owner, and she couldn’t be happier. She wrote, “UPDATE: LOOK WHO’S BACK HOME! thank you to everyone that helped and had our backs with these hateful comments. love yall.”
I know this seems like it’s a satirical piece, but it’s far from it. This news story highlights just how bad the SJW’s have manipulated our culture into thinking that everything is deep-seated in racism.
Does racism exist? Of course it does. But is everything and everyone racist? Not in the slightest.
Of course, you wouldn’t know that by reading about stories like this.
So, calm down people. I seriously doubt that millions of Spanish-speaking people aren’t going to change the word “negro” because you are offended.
This is nowhere near a race issue. Stop trying to make it one.
