This is alone the same lines as the people who use the word ‘nigga’ and people who wear chains and bracelets. People are looking way too deeply into this instead of taking it as face value. There was no talk of ‘slavery’ when people have been planking for years in the world of exercise but now that planking has developed a new meaning thanks to the Aussie’s/Brits there’s a negative connotation? Please. Folks should lighten up and stop keeping the idea of slavery alive. We have freedom now, limited…but times have changed, respect the history but it is just that HISTORY.
