    Called HillBilly several times growing up. Used to have the "privilege' of working with a black racist woman who called me "white mother f****r" several times everyday. After she sued the company and got a very large monetary settlement from them for "racism" against her and her leaving the company, I told HR about my experience's with her. They asked why I never said anything about it to them. My answer was simple, they were afraid of minorities and wouldn't have listened and went after me. The HR rep candidly agreed with what I said. Think about that the next time you are leaning on a copy machine or cussing at one. Feel free to guess the copier company.

    Well it got me suspended on FB so their analysts say it is not within community standards.

    Due to the weird accent of mine...not really. Too hard to figure out where I am from... I guess. South Africa? Austria? Russia? I wouldn't care anyway.

    Long story, but yes and more.
    Working a bouncing job. I was a younger man, hope I still got a little more gas in the tank if that kind of violence ever comes my way again.

    When I was a boy everyone in my extended Irish family called me Mick. So if I want to be woke and sensitive then in hindsight maybe I was called an ethnic slur. That makes me a victim, right?

    Sure. Not too bad when I was a kid but when I moved to Tennessee white guys were a small minority in some of the places I lived. Got called lots of things.

    Many things and many times since.

    Irish by heritage, and worked in a bicycle shop run by Armenians in the late seventies. We had a blast trying to come up with the worst possible things to call each other. HH

    W.A.S.P. is not an ethnic slur.

    I used to live in a big city and I've been referred to in friendly terms as a Gabacho, a White boy, or a Goy depending on what neighborhood I lived in.

    When I was about 20 years old I was walking in a fairly bad area and this dude across the street started yelling -

    "What you doing walking so proud-like white boy!"

    The message was stay out and I did.
