    It does not matter, that is NOT what you asked. It is also not relevant to my initial response. I also stated that recently I have not. Don't know how you missed that.

    How? The dictionary and my ears say your statement is not true, period.

    So again JUST LIKE I SAID it is still a racial term.

You could probably blame that on the education/intelligence level of those who would use such derogatory words against another person to begin with. My bet is it is just easier for some ignorant racist white person to use the n word than to use other words. Everyone knows that the n word is derogatory, some might not get that jigaboo is.

    It kinda reminds me of the word "kaffir". I think it was on here or perhaps some other site a couple of years ago that someone said that it was racist and there were lots of people that had no clue that it was a racial term because it is mainly used in South Africa. The only reason I knew it was is because I love the Lethal Weapon movies, and the Dutch guy says it to Murtaugh (Danny Glover). The context and reaction inferred the racial connotations, not any prior knowledge of the word.
    So I say again your comment had little to do with the actual conversation and it is STILL a racial slur. Does not matter that is is winding down etc. Had nothing to do with my comments.

    it's fairly common for the guys I ride with to call me Brother, and most of them are white. It doesn't offend me, I don't see why it would. The opposite is true, actually.

    Some people feel that there is always some truth in sterotypes. What do you think?

    Why do some people still use term nappy or hate on each other over "bad" hair? There have even been childrens books written for little black children to love their own natural hair. There was a movie made about it.

    How is this not relevant? My initial argument was, and it still is, that the term "jigaboo" is much more commonly used by blacks than it is by whites. Whether it is used by black people in a derogatory fashion or not, I have no clue. I know at least one guy on the internet has adopted it as part of his internet name, Jigaboo Jones.

    Your ears, nor the dictionary, can honestly say whether my own experience is true or not, which is what the original statement was. Here, I'll show you again.

    I think I may have heard this word before this particular topic, but it certainly was not in any racist way.
    post #383 in this thread

    I was commenting on my direct experiences, from what I can remember, with this word. You, nor the dictionary, have any way to know in what context I heard this word first. Heck, I can barely remember myself. I'm almost certain it was on a movie.

    Quote Originally Posted by Blackdog View Post

    And, as I have been saying, not one frequently used by whites. Especially not whites that are under the age of 40, perhaps even 50.

    My source agrees with me that it does not seem to be mainly whites using this derogatory term.

    It has plenty to do with it, since your source claims

    Used mainly by whites to disparage black people.
    which from my source and experience, is not true. Our sources obviously conflict, which is why I was asking you questions about your own experience with the word recently. And my questioning has to do with how often you have heard this used by whites today against blacks, which should have been followed by how often you may have heard a black person use this particular term, whether in a derogatory fashion or not, because it shows that if blacks are using this term more than whites in any way today, then currently it is not true that the word is "used mainly by whites to disparage black people".

    You are absolutely wrong here. I did not say anything about it being recent and you did not bother to read the rest of the definitions from my source.

    I am almost 49, and I have heard it used as even YOUR OWN reference says.

    You are trying to change goal posts here.

    I am not playing. Everything I said is true as is the article.

    I would assume they mean some sorta malnourished "Ethiopian" type of physique seeing as the average black girl portrayed on TV (and the TV is viewed often) is a thick booty'd biotch. And the average of my experience is all I have to go by.

    Or seeing as I am white and black girl skinny would be normal looking too me "sorry I havent seen many anorexic black girls...." /sarcasm

    If you look hard enough, you'll find an example of the stereotype...but it will usually apply outside the intended race, too.
