TanakhCast #110: The Snowflake Edition

I’m TRIGGERED!!

In this week’s episode: Jeremiah 12-15.  We continue in the book of Jeremiah with a consideration of racist language, feelings and snowflakes.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  I realize that in the process of discussing the toxicity of the “K” word and other racial language, I used the “K” word.  I said it out loud.  Numerous times.

It is obviously a less loaded term to English speakers because it is in Hebrew… but nonetheless, not appropriate.  If its use offended y’all, dear listeners, I apologize.

ICYMI, here’s the hate-crimer from Oregon crying about being caught.
