The Southern cites and Northern cities what they have in common is they have negroes. But the Southern cities are not cold. When it's cold the negroes are inside for a 3 or 4 months.

Man, I am a negro and didn't even know it.

We've traveled to the 1950s I guess. Although that means no Internet so I guess we're all going to have to start talking to each other via telegram.

I don't think anyone would have given it a second thought except for the statement it was used in.

It's an archaic word that is considered a slur when used in reference to a human being. The word is acceptable when used in an historical context, such as Negro League Baseball. It isn't acceptable to use the word as it was used in this thread.
