This paper discusses and analyzes the essay, "Racism in the English Language," by Robert B. Moore. The paper focuses on the statement that language influences Western thought from the first moment we learn it. The paper illustrates, through this enlightening essay, that the English language is peppered with racial stereotypes and slurs, even in words and phrases that seem quite harmless. The paper questions whether it is intentional that many English words and phrases were created with subtle references to black as "bad" and white as "good" or whether they are simply a result of long repressed and unconscious thoughts and feelings about the races.
