    I forgot about squid and hated it then, but adore it now. Strange.

    I've lived all over the world. If you haven't ever lived in an area where you paid the "white tax" you may not get around enough.

    Thing is, I don't care. I've got a pretty good grasp of reality and how things work.

    Yes. MF Cracker after I was finally able to push my way into a bus seat for after school ski club. He was pushing me and knocking me to the floor to prevent me from sitting, holding the bus up until I would sit. After he said that to me, he did not like the word I said or I assume he didn't by the look he gave me. Shut him up, never said another word, never tried to push me around.

    Growing up I was called every kind of Bohunk except a nice one but coming from a couple of dirty Mc's, a dumbass kraut and a disease infested WOP I took it with a grain of salt....

    I grew up on the proverbial "wrong side of the tracks".

    Therefore the phrase "white trash" was very common.

    To make matters worse, my ancestors were Irish immigrants.

    My siblings and I have lily white skin, red hair and freckles.

    We resemble lobsters when we spend too much time in the sun.​

    I've been called names, but nothing really "ethnic."
    A name is a name, I guess.

    As Mark Twain wrote: "I've never let schooling interfere with my education".

    Haughtiness among Yalies didn't start in your lifetime. Leland Stanford and his wife made an appointment to see the President of Yale. They went from California to Ct. They sat outside his office. He was now too busy to meet with them. Ok. They returned to California and Mr. Stanford started his own college. And, at one time, Yale had a President who had not gone to college -probably the last time that any sensible person ran the place.

    Yes: WOP, guinea, dago. Get over it. It's a word and when people try and weaponize it against you, the true nature of their character is on display for all to see.
    Growing up in the 60s and 70s, there was always somebody who would try and humiliate me with the latest Italian joke. I'd already heard them all, so I'd wait until they plodded through the setup and then I'd tell the punchline. I got the laugh and they were the brunt of the joke. I got really good at delivering punchlines that way. :dancing:

    Many times over the years an couldn’t begin to count how many times I’ve Been insulted by being referred to as a yankee. I’m a Canuck. Can’t post a smiley with this some of the best times I’ve had were on the other side of the ditch.

    I'm sure I've been called hillbilly, cracker, maybe even the old school honkey - those are really the only names for white people that come to mind. I don't specifically remember it, because my white privilege means I don't give a ____ . Call me a racist name and it amounts to a funny story to tell later - not lifelong trauma like it apparently causes for some.

    I’ve been called George Jefferson’s favorite a few times.

    On another note, I’ve also been mistaken for being a different race than I am on a few different occasions. 3 different ones oddly enough.
