It is a humorous way to say 'OK, whatever' and move on with our lives." Doha Madani Read more: NBC News

Politcorectical idiot Just because a person finds a word insulting, does not mean that it is on the same level as a word that has a long hx of being associated with slavery, violence, and racism..... I don't think anyone is claiming that any other group in all of history has ever suffered as much as 21st century African Americans, but to avoid future confusion: what, exactly, is the amount required to make insults unsayable?

I use the nigga word all the time. Dont necessarily find it offensive if it suits the nature and the character or situation that I am confronting when I use it. For me, this word even transcends ethnicity or color. As a boomer, I have become used to it. I’m a boomer and I think it’s funny. I’m not offended, it’s the name of my generation! I’m from the south and the n word is extremely offensive to me and I’m white! There is absolutely NO compression, ok boomers! 😜

The 2 most dangerous things in this world is sincere ignorance and Conscientious Stupidity denounce! fire the jerk! those kids are Doomers Bad bad boomer Not a relevant comparison

University of Oklahoma denounces professor who compared 'OK, Boomer' to N-word"The use of the most offensive word, by a person in a position of authority, hurt and minimized those in the classroom and beyond." idiot as a boomer with three houses spending my winters on the coast playing on my 42 sailboat.,If I cared one whit what some punk kid living in his /her parents basement said I would probably consider it a pejorative. Fascinating how the left justifies insulting one demographic while allowing and encouraging the insult of another. Yes professor you are 100% correct. It is an insult. Both phrases are insults directed at a specific subset of people, so what's the problem?

Most boomer thing to ever do. Sounds about white.... 'If you're comparing the badness of two words, and you won’t even say one of them? That's the worse word.' -John Mulaney If you are sensitive about this stuff. okboomer Not THIS Boomer. 🙄 Both are discriminatory. Some white folks wanna be oppressed so badly.

Ok Boomer I say the N-word hundreds of times a day. It feels really good. People who aren't trying this are missing out. So, OK Boomer Sooner?

University of Oklahoma Professor Allegedly Claims Saying 'OK, Boomer' Is as Offensive as the N-Word'His comment and word choice are fundamentally offensive and wrong,' University of Oklahoma Interim President Joseph Harroz Jr. said At a university where “Boomer” is part of their chant? Ironic. Uh, oh. *Triggered white boomer alert* OKL Boomer

Awwww is the old man offended? Ok, boomer OK, Boomer He looks like the perfect stereotype of a boomer Riiiight. And it's SO similar that we have no trouble saying it, but we DO bleep out or otherwise NOT say the N-word. And yoy know EXACTLY what word 'the N-word' refers to! OK, Boomer. 🤣😂🤣 Good on the college. Sheesh!

Omg this is infuriating. Be a descendant of slaves and endure systematic racism for more than a dozen decades then we’ll talk... boomer. What’s up, my boomer? I get why his use of the word was wrong and agree with the school for admonishing him for using, but why is his personal opinion about the usage of the word 'boomer' also considered offensive by the school?

So many hilarious people in the world just competing for most victimized..... Freedom of speech. Don't really give a damn either way.
