    My name is Wake and I'm black so when I say something doesn't have significance, then I'm speaking for all "black folk".

    No.

    A lot of "black folk" certainly know about the meaning of "boy". It's how racists used to refer to all black men because they didn't consider them men, they considered them boys.

    Political correctness is just your way of saying "I don't know the history of a term, so I'm going to pretend people just made it up".

    this is a fact.
    That depends on where you are and who you are talking to, including the age difference between the two.

    I know plenty of older men, 40s and up, who will call any guy that looks younger than them by at least a decade "boy". The person's race makes no difference. I also know lots of guys that use "boy" to describe one of their buddies, as in "that's my boy!".

    Yes, there are some people who will say this to a black guy as an attempt to degrade them, but that is not as common now as the more open use of it to refer to either younger men than the speaker or a specific buddy of the speaker no matter the race of any involved.

    I do not cause he did not seem to say it in hate and there is that whole song about getting white boy crazy. What do you think? One my white friends say it was racist but she said the Bridezilla was lucky he showed up at all.
    Maybe? As a white person myself, that doesn't really offend me at all. But idk, racism can be in the eye of the beholder i suppose.

    Re: Get White Boy Drunk: Is That Racist?

    I'm a white "boy," and it doesn't offend me, as I see the truth of that statement every week. I see people of every race getting drunk on my campus each weekend, but it seems more often than not its a white guy/girl that's passed out or vomited all over him/herself. Doesn't mean white students are the only ones doing it, but they're the only ones I see doing it. Perhaps there are differences in how drunk you can be while still being socially acceptable between different cultures?

    This term 'white boy drunk' may be a form of the term 'white boy wasted' which refers to being extremely intoxicated. Urban Dictionary: white boy wasted

    Is it racist? No in my eyes.

    Some.. White slave owners used to call their male slaves boy and any folks that have read about slavery should know this.

    Now that I think about it could it mean kinda like what "Calling Earl" used to mean to folks drunk and throwing up back in the day?
