Words are just words. If you let it get under your skin, that's your fault. Sure, the guy who said them was a prick, but it's your choice how you react to those words. If you treat his words as if they don't matter, then indeed they don't.
Words are not just words. If you let them get under your skin you prove you're human. And the choice of words said can matter given the situation and how much self respect, pride and dignity you have. Maybe that racial slur doesnt affect you but there are things that can be said to get under your skin. Fact.
