The word Nigger is the most derogatory racial slur in the English language, so much so that there is a law against that specific word. Not even black people are allowed to use it in the United States, although the authorities usually look the other way when they do, and we certainly hear it a lot in movies.
As a matter of fact, American Negros call themselves many names when they are talking among members of their own race, but other races can only refer to them as Afro-Americans. And that’s where movies fool us.
Afro-Americans call people of their own race Oreos if they want to insult them by implying that they are black only on the outside but are thinking like a white person on the inside by being overly tolerant or respectful of white people. Afro-Americans also insult their own race by calling them Uncle Tom. The name Uncle Tom comes from a best-selling anti-slavery book written in the 19th century called Uncle Tom’s Cabin. It was credited for laying the groundwork for the Civil War. The character Tom was a noble, long-suffering Christian slave who allowed himself to be exploited and tried to overcome the hardships of his life through love. Afro-Americans today perceive him as weak and subservient.
Of course African Americans also have derogatory words for white people. Honky is used by African-Americans to refer to Caucasians and so is Whitey. The word Honky had been used for a long time, but it only became a serious pejorative in the 1960s when Black Power militants began to use it as a rebuttal for the term Nigger, a time when they encouraged their followers to burn or shoot the Honkies.
American Caucasians like to disparage their fellow Caucasians if they are southern and have inferior incomes by calling them Rednecks, Hillbillies or Crackers.
Both races call people of mixed races Half-breeds or In-Betweeners, the latter meaning “ain’t black and ain’t white”.
