    Well they didn't call me a wet back after seeing me get out of the shower so yeah, I guess.
    Looking back, I am fortunate that did not trigger me. I had a successful career dealing with the public. I married a white woman. I own a white pit bull. I just recently had a black guy mow my yard since I have a neck fracture. I reached for the stars.

    Remember that being a common name around here when growing up. Another name we were referred to was being called a dogan.

    Cracker many times. Ghost once. Honkey once (I laughed my ass off at that one). Pig a few times (more of professional thing, not ethnic). American Pig once while abroad.

    I’ve been called a “dumb frog” due to my French Canadian blood as well as “cracker”. Didn’t bother me then and sure as heck not now.

    My entire childhood, all the way through highschool, I was never called by my name. My name was "white boy". Occasionally the Mexicans would call me "bolillo". School was very racial and it was not a good thing to be white where I grew up.

    I'm called the "Mental Oriental" by my friends.
    My favorite slap-down to my JA friends is 'You can't Jap-out now, everybody will think you're Yellow".

    Have lots of other ethnic names we call each other,most of them will violate the TOS.

    Yeah I'm more inclined for another Squid calling me a Squid than others that's for sure.

    My brother and I were called Nazis as kids shortly after WWII because we were bilingual (German) and our parents were not born in this country, even though my dad was an American WWII veteran, VFW member, etc.

    My dad was a tough SOB and the word was that being called a Nazi was asking for a broken nose. By the time we got to high school the name calling had stopped because we followed Dad's advice. I'm not a tough guy and got my ass kicked plenty of times, just never took insults without an immediate response.

    I’ve been called all sorts of names.

    Zues, Thor, Hercules....ive heard them all.

    it’s my chiseled pecs and high cheekbones and rugged good looks.

    I don't recall. If it did happen I didn't notice. It's just words.

    Grew up listening to dumb polack jokes seemed like nonstop. I started to wonder if these were like a national pastime or something.

    Later while serving in Army it was [email protected]&$ing slave owner and honkey trash, usually while fighting multiple idiots. It just seemed like they didn’t want to ever get along with anyone who was white, and you learned to never trust them. Now I just consider the source.

    Words of wisdom from my dad M-A-N-Y decades ago... he said, "son, you`ll run out fists long before you run out idiots". Man it took me decades to understand what that mean`t...lol. Wasn`t to long ago where i forgot what he told me, and knocked a guy right out with one punch that called me a god damn wop and tried to push me backwards. Yup, WOP, he hit the pavement! Never put your hands on an old man, he might just have one good punch left!
