To take it a little further, what if I said I got gypped. I think it
goes to gypsy's. Was it racist?
Reneged has always been renegotiable, yet one time I accidently said
to a good black friend of mine that something was nig rigged, and
thought it meant negotiably rigged, but it wasn't racist.
Recently, I told a guy to ramit, because his name or pseudo name, I
thought, was ramit, and got called a racist for it.
It seems that we get too politically correct when we want to cherry
pick a comment for propaganda against someone.
Sometimes it's just ridiculous.
