a particular individual: zzrhardy: I used the word "nubianrdly" to describe a problem in one of our tech meetings and about half the peoples heads turned sideways with a "?".

After the meeting I looked it up - it is a much older word than the N bomb and has Norse origins so is unrelated. Kinda dropped it from my vocab regardless.

Nubian, please.


It looks like the fark word filter doesn't like words of Norse origins....

I swear I Lol when I saw the term jigaboo. I haven't heard that derogatory word in at least two decades. And I don't remember the last time I heard yours :) Could be I found it funny that a racist redneck (and drunk) cop got fired for using it.

If I were to be on a Non-PC version of "Family Feud", I would not have won the $20k.

I always wondered if it was a corruption of the name of an African people or a local place name from which some of them had originally been taken. I have a dim recollection of older people describing local black people by putative origin, i.e. "That'un's pure Gullah, he ain't Geechee at all", which led me to speculate that perhaps "jigaboo" was similar, since it sounded more like a location than an insult.

Sure, that sounds legit.

^^ Also fails to understand how any "creepy-ass cracker" could not know that "jigaboo" is offensive ^^

You sound tired.

Tired of double-standards, hypocrisy and politically-correct candy-assed bullshiat that benefits no one.

1956 Webster's unabridged dictionary defines computer as "One who computes, a reckoner; a calculator." In other words a person not a device.

Well, Gullah is likely a corruption of Gola, and there are enough similarities between the language spoken by the Kissi and Geechee that it's at least a possibility that Geechee is how it ended up pronounced here over time. For all I know there's a Djigabu Bay.

Add me to the list of people who can't recall hearing the term.

The funny thing is that if I read the word without context, I would have guessed that it was a term of endearment. Words that end with -boo elicit that response from me.

I'm too sheltered to get a lot of references and obviously not much of a Seinfeld fan either since it wasn't the Bania guy who converted for the Jew joke pass. It was the dentist played by Malcolm's dad.
I do find some of Louis' stuff funny, but not as funny as the Bill Burr stuff on that same page. Thanks.

Maybe. The word "jigaboo" just seems so random.  It's not descriptive, doesn't sound obviously insulting. It's like you stuck three random syllables together. Thus my confusion about it as a yoot, until I thought about how many Cherokee words had entered the local vocabulary as place names after a lot of distortion to get them to fit English pronunciation.
