In class one day a kid used a slur that made me extremely uncomfortable. When I addressed why it was wrong of him to express such prejudice he tried to justify his actions by using another slur.
I was so angry, I refused to continue the conversation. It bothered me all day. I realized that I had let my anger get the best of me in a situation where I could have, potentially, educated someone.
