    Just curious here. Growing up it was not uncommon to hear an ethic slur once in a while. I mean many churches were ethnic and that how people identified themselves. So have you ever been called an ethnic?

    I had an old sergeant at FE Warren AFB that used to refer to me as, "That smart-ass white boy."

    Used to get called a "herring choker" from the folks who lived inland here in Maine when I was a kid....it was very hurtful...but I've gotten over it now.
