How to use derogatory in a sentence?

  1. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards:

    The admitted and repeated use of racial slurs by a judge who has taken an oath to administer justice fairly and impartially is wrong, period. There is never any circumstance or context in which such derogatory and degrading language is okay, sadly, inequities still exist in society and in our judicial system. District Judge Jessie LeBlanc has compromised District Judge Jessie LeBlanc ability to preside as a judge, and District Judge Jessie LeBlanc has damaged the judiciary. District Judge Jessie LeBlanc should resign. The people of the 23rd Judicial District and our state deserve better.

  5. Michael Dowse:

    We vetted it all legally and stuff and the opinion was that because everyone uses it so much, it's fair game. As long as you're not derogatory about it and as long as you use it as it's used in real life and you're not making stuff up about how it's used, you're free to go. And it's a better title than 'Stiffed'.
