Are you kidding me?
CNN has decided it’s not enough to jump on the woke bandwagon. No, the liberal news network wants to become the arbiter of what words are now considered racist.
Where was their outrage when Barack Obama was president?
Click through to the end to see what “problematic” words CNN wants to be scrubbed from our lexicon.

Master bedroom and master bathroom are common phrases in real estate, first used in 1926 — 60 years after the abolition of slavery.
As the words imply, they refer to the largest bedroom and bathroom in a given home.
CNN claimed that although “it’s unclear whether the term is rooted in American slavery on plantations, it evokes that history.”
One of professional golf’s four major tournaments, the Masters, is now in the crosshairs of CNN’s woke arbiters. The Masters has become synonymous with the best players in the game, legendary golfers, like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods.
The tournament’s name originated in 1934. But apparently, it’s only “problematic” now.
CNN argued that the term grandfather clause disenfranchised black voters who weren’t ostensibly granted the right to vote until 1870. Although it originated in a time of pervasive racism, the phrase itself isn’t inherently racist.
For lefties, here it’s meaning:
Grandfather clause —
A clause exempting certain classes of people or things from the requirements of a piece of legislation affecting their previous rights, privileges, or practices.
Like grandfather clause, CNN’s newsroom wants to relegate the phrase “peanut gallery” to the ash heap of history. The phrase refers to cheap seats or hecklers, so what’s CNN’s problem? Their article argues — truthfully — that African Americans were historically relegated to second-tier seats.
However, the phrase was popularized in the 1940s and 1950s by Howdy Doody when joking around with his rambunctious child audience.
