    Well, this went off the rails.

    Actually, it makes you ignorant and racist, for not understanding the underlying meaning of the word.

    That's the meaning. You can take your underlying meaning and go to your safe place.

    So does this mean you will be using these words in your copy now? I'd like to read some examples and see how well that works out for you.

    No, I doubt I would use them because it'd trigger too many people like you who can't use a dictionary.
