Recently, Dustin Daughtry was eating lunch with co-workers when one of them started talking about a Halloween party he’d attended. He said, “My brother came to the party and had the best costume. He went as a RETARD! Oh man, it was hilarious!”
Dustin was taken aback. His daughter, Raegan, has Down syndrome, and he couldn’t believe that he was hearing adults use the word “retard.” Did they not know that the word is considered hate speech?
Rather than stay silent, Dustin made a move. He pulled up a photo of Raegan on his phone and placed it on the table. Then, he shocked the men with a proclamation of his own.
