The word is in the dictionary, why isnt it accepted?

In answer to the specific words:
Jew and Jewish are proper nouns which are not valid in most word games.
OXTER is a valid word on the word list. This usually occurs when other words are being formed at the same time or tiles are being played along more than one row or column. Every place there are two or more tiles touching must form a valid word. There could also be a stray tile on the board somewhere which will not let it validate any words. You can send a screen shot if you still have the turn. To do a screen shot tap the home button on the front of device and the lock button at the top at the same time. This will put a screen shot in your pictures. Go to your pictures app and you can email that picture to email@example.com.
Words that are usually capitalized..names of places, people, etc. are not valid words. So things like the days of the week, month names, countries etc. are not on the list. Thanks!
General word list info:
We use a standard word list for validation called ENABLE2k. People and Chumbots use the exact same list..except some of the easier Chumbots can’t use parts of the list. It’s used by quite a few games and you can search on it if interested. However it only has words and not definitions. We look definitions up via a service called Wordnik.com which does not have nearly as many definitions. In an upcoming update we are going to research many of the most unusual words and create a list of their definitions we can use in game. Scrabble’s list is copyrighted so we cannot copy it. The link for their list is below in case you are curious.
If you would like to suggest words to add or delete just send us a support request.
Thanks for playing and spreading the word!

USE A BETTER DICTIONARY!!!THE CURRENT ONE IS TERRIBLE!!!
Your choice of "offensive" words that you randomly eliminated are strictly opinion.
Include ALL words in the dictionary with an age appropriate filter. Only way to have a fair game.
Jew and negro are not accepted....
But nazi, dago and cracker are?
Pussy is not accepted but dildo is?
And "brainer" is not accepted.....and that's a no brainer!!!!!!
Just left us know specific word suggestions and we will always review them. The best way to submit them is an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to use the Support and Feedback button in game and then the send message or contact us option.
