Holy crap, I think this article is for real. The real bigots that live in the Southern US, the ones that spend as much time hating black people as I spend playing Rock Band, are using “Canadian” as a secret code word for “black.”
Last August, a blogger in Cincinnati going by the name CincyBlurg reported that a black friend from the southeastern U.S. had recently discovered that she was being called a Canadian. “She told me a story of when she was working in a shop in the South and she overheard some of her customers complaining that they were always waited on by a Canadian at that place. She didn’t understand what they were talking about and assumed they must be talking about someone else,” the blogger wrote.
It works like this: “We can’t use the usual word to describe the race we hate, so we’ll substitute a foreign nationality instead.” Gee, that insults a race and a nationality simultaneously! Full-time hate is a difficult job kids, don’t try this at home.
How does that make all y’all feel, my Canuckistani friends? (“Hooplehead” tag woefully inefficient here, I don’t have a “hatemonger” tag.)
