Words With Friends Racist?

I’m a big fan of Words With Friends, or any scrabble type of game. Of course I was excited as hell when I was able to make out a word using all 7 of the letters I had to play.

So I make my play, ready to get my 20 or so points score plus the extra 35 points for using all 7 letters in one play…

And I get this message….

Foul! Flag on the play! Excuse me, Words With Friends?!?!  We have a problem……How is an arguably racist term like “honkies” acceptable, but the word “haitian” is not? Call me a sore loser, but the fact that Brendon’s Mom 22 scored 99 points for that word doesn’t help things either. I eventually lost that match, but I still call foul.

    The word “Jew ” is unacceptable!!! but the word “Yid” is acceptable. Facebook was originated by a Jew. The game is clearly racist.

    I found your blog because I tried playing “Noire” figuring that although it is a French word it is not so uncommon in the English language… DENIED!

    Korea isn’t a acceptable word.

    I think a better example is when they have solo challenges, almost all the hardest characters are black, they even have Alice “of” wonderland and she is black. Since when has she ever been black?
