Reading a thread in the Rockets forum got me thinking (yes I do think sometimes). Some people get offended way too easily. I'm not blaiming anyone. I dont think its easy to offend me, but its not hard either. Anyways, I didn't even know the term "chinaman" is offensive to the Chinese people. What is offensive to the Caucasion people on this board? Do some of you get offended by the term "white boy" easily. I use that term jokingly from time to time. I dont think I've ever offended anyone with it. The only term that I can think of that offends Indians or brown people would be "camel jockey". I heard plenty of that when I first moved here in 1989. What do Mexicans get offended by? I didnt even know there were any derogatory terms for Mexicans or Caucasions. Maybe I am naive as anything, but the only derogatory terms I know are "nigga" and "camel jockey". I am not meaning to start a war here, but am merely interested to see what offends people of different nationalities or people of different color. Most of us are adults and should be able to handle this without a major flameout. Sorry if I've offended someone already.
