after a day of boating the other day, my buddy, his parents, his cousin, and my other friend and his mom all docked up to a bar/restaurant we’ll call Bernie’s.
we walk in, get a table, and a drunk at the bar proceeds to tell a story about how that morning he looked outside, saw a squigger and shot it. my friends and I looked at each other, and the guy to whom the (obviously)drunk guy was talking said what we were thinking “What the Hell is a squigger?” the drunk guy said “A squigger? A Black Squirrel!”
now, I mean I shoot squirrels that are trespassing on my property all the time, and I’ve bagged a black squirrel along with red and gray, but I’ve never thought to call a black squirrel a Squigger. This kind of made me nervous that people are so racist in their hearts, that they even have slangs for different colored animals–
so I guess my debate would be if this would be considered racist or not.
if needed, Moderators, do your dutie and move this thread to the appropriate forum, I have no clue where to post this.
