You don’t need to be old to do that. :lol: That’s half the reason the Girlfriends father and I don’t get on I think.

Another question, mainly for you G2, did you ever call them Half-Castes in the US or is it mainly a UK and Commonwealth thing? A half-caste is someone like Obama, half black and half white (even though he’s 75% white :lol: )

No I've never herd that term, and really have never herd any term at all for it. At least in my State and city. I wouldn't be surprized to hear other regions have some choice labels for it.

You've never heard the term Molato?

Cigarettes are still fags in England.

At least I hope that's what my dad is talking about when he says he's off to suck on a fag.

Where?


England.

I've only heard English people say "Half-Cast" as well.
I believe it's spelled Mulatto

I had a feeling I spelled it wrong.

Weird, I have a friend from England and he's never really used or heard the term 'fag' used in that context for a while now.

Here in the states, that is totally not what "fagging" would be reffered to. You country is so crazy Lash. ;)

And if I ever did visit England, I would be glad that I don't smoke. :D

Maybe it's regional slang?
Jim's dad definitely still says it, and I've heard it on tv over there, so it's still in rotation.
Anyways, I misspelled half-caste even after somebody typed it out correctly, so who am I to complain. lol

Some of us have family members who are gay, it's interesting the differences of how a word can be perceived in one country from another. Fags are ciggies, Faggots are sticks, Queer is strange, Poof is homosexual, in the UK. But not in the US. Perhaps one day, people will be people...not nicknames.
