    Really--that was a really racist sort of comment CYBEROID!

    Where I live---deep in the  North country--"Folks" is just a word for other people.  ALL other people.  No snark;  no difference between colors;  no slights.

    Just a word.  "Go down and see the folks at the hardware store and ask them for a widget to fix that".  "Going to see my folks this weekend".

    And I am pretty sure the "Folk Festival"  I passed this weekend--with hundreds of attendees!!!!---had NOTHING to do with racism--in fact;  probably the complete opposite!

    Where are you FROM that this word has such connotations????

    Pete Seeger---the absolute definition of "Folk Singer"---had a banjo that had words on the face::::

     This instrument surrounds hate and forces it to surrender

    Kinda says it all right folks?

      as my folks. "Nancy, these are my folks, Ted and Betty Lou." I don't know if age has something to do with the meaning, but I am sixty and I am white. Irish white.
