    My nickname as a child, among my family / neighbors, was ****** Lips. (That's the N-word in asterisks)

    I was born in Cuba, my family came to the US in 1968. I was raised in Olympia WA.
    Speak fluent Spanish, my first language.

    In the mid 90s, my dad and I took a trip to Costa Rica. While visiting my dad's distant cousins in San Jose, I was called a "Gringo" - I said "What?" They replied that my Spanish had an American accent. I laughed my tukas off.

    We heard it all growing up in NYC. Wop, Guinea, dago etc, with and without the MF appended or prefaced. My dads name was Michaelangelo (Mike), and when I came along I was named after him but given the family name Mickey or Mick. With blue eyes most people thought I was Irish. My brother, a Navy RIO was called Salami by his squadron mates because our aunts used to send him care packages with mostly Italian foods like salami. As he rose in rank it was changed to Golden Guinea. After Tailhook when politically correctness was the order of the day, it was again changed to Golden.

    Hillbilly,Cracker,honky & (most offensive to me) Yankee. I'd moved from Tennessee to Texas & was called a Yankee.I responded that "if it weren't for Tennessee there wouldn't no damn Texas". BTW I prefer 'mountain william' to 'hillbilly'.

    A little Mexican girl called me a cracker once.

    My girlfriend's mother called me a cracker a few times.

    What's with Mexicans calling me a cracker anyway?

    Oh, and by the way that scarred me for life.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    No they're not bankrupt yet. They came close in the late 90's. It wouldn't surprise me if they don't go bankrupt. They are depending on their iconic brand name to carry them.

    Not specifically but when trying to find an apartment at Miami University (the real Miami, not the thugs in Miami itself) in 1966, the woman asked if my name was of German origin? I said yes, so? My parents were born here. Thought she was an idiot, didn't rent her room. Don

    When I played ball, was referred to many times as “that’s a bad a$$ white boy.” It was a show of respect.

    Being ethnic I never was insulted being called a Hunky. Was proud of it.

    True, and according to modern day morons, you and I can feel like we are of the opposite sex, and whom can say different?

    I've been called a Swamp Yankee. I'm proud to be one since what most be call "yankees" aren't. A true Yankee is a very, very rare things these days.

    I grew up with and therefore know plenty of hillbillies. They're proud of it!
