Poll Online Slurs

FILE - This Oct. 24, 2013 file photo shows a youth checking his smartphone in Glenview, Ill. In a shift of attitude, most young people now say it's wrong to use racist or sexist slurs online, even if you're just kidding. They're still pretty chill about it, though. A majority of teens and young adults who use the Internet or text on their cellphones say they see derogatory words and images. They often dismiss that stuff as just joking around, not meant to be hurtful, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV. (AP Photo/Nam Y.
