I'm not attempting to police the response, sorry if that's the impression I gave. My point is it shouldn't be used. I can't control whether others use the term, nor do I intend to.

In terms of addressing white supremacy, that's not an answer I have. I live in an area where 97% of people are Hispanic, so I have no way to address white supremacy, since it doesn't really exist in my area.

In terms of the modern book burning in Texas, I agree. My point being name calling isn't going to stop them. Instead, we need to engage with them and provide reasons as to why they shouldn't teach students a right wing agenda. If they pass it anyway, then we need more people to run for office that'll prevent that from continuing.
