O knihe

Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 43. Chapters: List of ethnic slurs, List of slang terms for police officers, Wobbly lingo, List of CB slang, List of sports idioms, List of ethnic slurs by ethnicity, List of regional nicknames, List of British banknotes and coins, Slang terms for money, List of religious slurs, List of terms for white people in non-Western cultures, Sinhala slang, Sri Lankan Tamil slang. Excerpt: The following is a list of ethnic slurs (ethnophaulisms) that are, or have been, used as insinuations or allegations about members of a given ethnicity or to refer to them in a derogatory (critical or disrespectful), pejorative (disapproving or contemptuous), or insulting manner in the English-speaking world. For the purposes of this list, an ethnic slur is a term or word used to insult on the basis of race, ethnicity, or nationality. Each term is listed followed by its country or region of usage, a definition, and a reference to that term. Ethnic slurs may also be produced by combining a general-purpose insult with the name of ethnicity, such as "dirty Jew", "Russian pig", "stupid American", etc. Other common insulting modifiers include "dog", "filthy", etc. Such terms are not included in this list. Related are the immigration slurs: while not necessarily targeting a particular ethnicity or race, they point at a "non-native" descent of the person. Abbie, Abe, and Abie (North America) a Jewish male. From the proper name Abraham. Originated before the 1950s.ABCD (South Asians in the U.S.) American-Born Confused Desi, a term used to refer to Indian Americans, Pakistani Americans or other South Asians, term as "desi," who were born in the United States. The condescending term is used chiefly by South Asian Immigrants to imply confusion about cultural identity.Abo/Abbo (AUS) Australian Aboriginal person. Originally, this was simply an informal term for Aborigine, and was in fact used by Aboriginal people themselves until it started to be considered offensive in 1950s. In remoter areas, Aboriginal people still often refer to themselves (quite neutrally) as Blackfellas (and whites as Whitefellas). Although Abo is still considered quite offensive by many, the pejorative boong is now more commonly used when the intent is to deliberately offend, as that word's status as an insult is unequivocal.Alligator bait (U.S.) also Gator Bait. A black person, especially a black child.
