An old boy's foot retraction

Geoff Davis
From his mouth. If you're a white politician you better not refer to a black colleague as boy; it would probably be easier for a black politician to get away with white boy. Darky would never fly but whitey might. Most likely the offending user of whitey could get by with a lighter, less groveling, apology.

American racial semantics in the 21st century.
