So my downstairs neighbor is an older gentleman from Tennessee, who’s maybe hinted at being racist. Around our apartment complex we have a bunch of stray, but domesticated, cats. He’s lived in our complex longer, so when he told me the names of the cats around our neighborhood, I believed that’s what they were really called. He named this cat “Blackie,” and I recently found out that could be a racial slur, so now I’ve taken it upon myself to name the cat “Midnight” (If that’s a bad name too, PLEASE tell me). And in the future, if anyone tells me a black cat is named something offensive, I’ll rename that cat to my liking as well. Lesson learned: don’t believe everything you’re told, and try to eradicate yourself of as much ignorance as you can ASAP.
