    "Free" and "online" tend to devalue the source. It's only one of many sources with differing opinions.

    Your point was a reference to saltine biscuits, not poor ex-bondsmen.

    My point was that a term spoken, in slang, by black Americans is having its meaning analyzed by a Brit who references its use by Irishmen and Scots.

    Did you know that the word for "pussy" in German is a typical greeting in Japan? Kinda illustrates my point further...

    Each one a selective cropping of the full definition. cherry-picking in action.

    LOL. That is a terrible idea. You want to get rid of racism? Stop seeing everything in terms of "black" and "white" (or "Latino" etc. etc.) Race is a social construct. So what we should be teaching is getting rid of said social construct. Not teaching about how one socially constructed group is to blame for every other socially constructed group's problems.
