Also, a big no to racial slurs and any foul related to that would result in the eradication of that particular contestant. Luke Valentine, who was a prominent figure in the show, perhaps with no violating intention, used a racial slur on Jared who was another participant of the show and was black.

There is no repentance to any of the contestants who would use the N-word so openly and that’s what Luke did and got his elimination called. It’s wrong not because Luke used a racial slur against a black contestant but, it’s generally not ethical and shouldn’t be tolerated in the name of peace and justice against the black community.
