We have Republicans still saying "Wetb4ck"...

It's not just Republicans who use the term. Many people, across party lines do. Mexicans use the equivalent .. when speaking of illegals. They're called mojados. How, with what inflection, the term is used determines whether it's an insult ... or fair description.
