    so i learned one more thing by clicking on this.

    and 'redskin' is a completely different thing from naming a team or entity "Seminole" which at least lends a certain amount of respect by not using a slur.

    it is also amazing how many people still do not know that 'spic' is a slur.

    which brings up the point that there are so many racial and other slurs that have made it into the language that we can't keep track.

    for example, i didn't know until recently that jack and jill was a problem.

    ugh.  even i am confused.

      for Ethnic and Other Slurs. In addition to the words and phrases, it also has a substantial selection of offensive images directed at President Obama. I have not attempted to collect any of the vast multitude of ethnic caricatures.
