Scrabble is a bit racist

This is my first time blogging from my iPhone.

My iPhone is like my own personal anger management - it has done wonders for my tendency to act like a 2 year old and throw a tantrum when I have to wait somewhere. Dear iPhone - my Nelson, the receptionist at the doctors office, and the chez cora hostess thank you for keeping my impatient temper in check.

But the iPhone is not solely responsible for my sudden bout of patience. Some credit must go to a little thing called....the scrabble ap.

Simply put, Scrabble is the bomb. I am obsessed. And it has taught me many many words.

Take this game for example. (Please note that I am winning)



There are several 'what the heck does that mean?' words on there.
dojo.
qi.
aba.
abo.
I decided to explore further.






And last but not least...the big shocker:



In conclusion, proper noun words like india or Gertrude are not allowed in scrabble...but a little bit if racism and cuss words are.
