    Other than another message radifying your unqualified partisanship in all perspectives, does ^ that message have any value whatsoever?

    "Boy" is derogatory? News to me.

    But not absolutely, as you suggested in the OP. Yes?

    I think the only time I've heard "boy" used, in a racially derogatory manner, was in the movies.
    Besides that, living in both rural and urban parts of Georgia, I've never heard it used it such a way.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It's another one of those Left wing myths that have taken root in our society.

    I think it could be one of those "**** people not from the South, belief about the South" things.
    I've heard my fair share of racially insensitive/offensive comments before and I can't think of a single instance of ever hearing "boy" used like that.

    I know they use it in the movies and I know it was used a long time ago in a demeaning manner, I just don't think it had the legs of other words.
