But you are pulling a name out that hasn't been used in eons. You are not talking about some old ladies talking and saying to their geezer friends back in 1974, "Oh, that negro boy down the street helps me mow my lawn every week." You are talking about coming into a bar all pissed off. Of course they would be mad because they know the intend of the person. As I stated, he could yell anything at them and they would probably take it the same way." He is an a-hole.
