OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- It's what you say and how you say it that matters.

There are lessons to be learned in life and that includes the semantics and ethics of racial language.

That's the title of a seminar held on the University of Mississippi campus held Oxtober 3.

The Department of Philosophy and Religion put together the conference which takes a closer look at slurs during a very frank discussion.

"Clearly this is a place where this type of discussion is both welcomed and a place where it is needed," keynote speaker Mississippi State University, Political Science and Public Administration's Ravi K. Perry said.

Perry says this conference reminds us that we need to be open and willing to talk about racial language.
