Should I ‘shut up’?

Am I right to speak out directly when (usually elderly) family members refer to my son as ‘a down’s’, or say ‘oh, he doesn’t understand’, or refer to people with learning disabilities as ‘mentally defective’? Or should I just ‘shut up and stop being so salty all the time’ for the sake of family harmony?
