The power of Words...to harm

Opinion piece from the NYT:
http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/11/07/speech-and-harm/
Discussion Questions:
•What gives slurs power?
•Why are slurs so offensive?
•Why do some slurs have more power than others? How do you explain why different people respond to the same slur differently?
