Wow.....Pyrrho.........I thought you were just being helpful.....short circuiting a discussion that could have gone on for pages or until one used the dictionary? But I'm guessing/assuming "a complaint" was filed???? Ha, ha. THE LAW. Pyrrho is what happens when two people disagree...........etc. Non-coercive too. Good Job.

So they can be as ambiguous as possible?

It is an archaic term that I, myself, would never use when addressing a person of color.

I see what you did there, and it's both a bit annoying, and well played at the same time. :lol:

Oh...........is THAT the issue? Well..........if you are referring to Coveny, that thought never entered my mind. and I agree..... "if" I had any thought at all to an addressee of mine being other than white, I would not have used the term either. I was just having fun with words. Ha, ha........once broken..........the excuses flow. I view most people as "mixed" not wanting to give the issue any thought at all. And by other than white..........I would not have used the term if talking to Asians or latino's either as peoples with a history of oppression are correct to take an insult to one as an insult to all.

I'm white myself....................... but not Albino White. I do enjoy calling my super white Bros Albinos. Benefiting from White Privilege, none has ever taken offense.

I could dither on.................................

Coveny: if you are insulted, my intent was only to mock you for not using the dictionary. Thats all. ((Where is Clayton Bigsby when you need him?)

Also, as you demonstrated, the word "stingy" is a suitable replacement that is not confusing and has less potential for racist usage.

Thanks Pyrrho. I will not be apologizing as there was zero intent and blah, blah, blah...if anyone wants to pursue related issues, I can dither. My goal is NOT to be personal ..... beyond what disagreeing with people generates. What I WILL DO is up my sensitivity once again. I used to think using the N word was OK because its just a word....but, I fairly quickly came to realize not just my view was at issue, but so was everyone elses. "Everyone Else" could take the same view. For Instance, not using a photo has certain obvious advantages regarding certain sensitivities.

I got those wimmen issues to work on as well.....................

On that we completely disagree. I do NOT feel like the word stingy could be swapped out in that sentence. The context was that I had a stupid arguement. (or some other version of insulting me)

Hey if the boards are cool with you using it. Knock yourself out, I personally still feel like you are gaming the system, but they made a decision I'll abide by that.

That's the time when I use it most often. But then, all the "persons of color" that I know are close friends who use worse terms to describe themselves and others.

Damn racists. They tend to be very niggardly in their judgement.
