Sarge you're just talking about the derivatives of the word negro and there are many of them. The "n"word with the current spelling came centuries later. It's first use here with the current spelling was a reference to the slaves that came from Nigeria. The slave runners were not learned men and most likely couldn't spell the word Nigerians and so the "N" word as we use it in North America is what we were exposed to. It is what the blacks along the Niger River were called. I gave you a link to the more accepted and common explanation of how the word appeared here in the 1800's. At that time it was not a derogatory racial slur. It was even commonly used here in the south in the late 1800's.
Democrats have been the most racist throughout our history since our Constitution was signed. Democrats formed the KKK originally targeting Republicans both Black and White. My Grandfather used to stand in front of his house in the town of Ranger Texas with his pistol tucked in his pants belt and spit tobacco on their white sheets calling out their names when they marched past going into town. Funny how the most egregious racists in our history have the gall to criticize a Republican for making a remark they deem racist....

Your reference to the 'Southern Democrats" a la' Sperm Thermond was sadly true UNTIL 1964. Then with the signing of the Civil Rights Act, the racial hatred and bigotry that had been directed at the Party of Lincoln for 100 years suddenly shifted and was pointed at the Democrats who made "innocent" white children attend school with black children. So, the FACT is that the racist bigots that USED TO BE in the Democratic Party "self deported" into the Republican Party, where they rule today. I constantly remind people jrbush doubled the debt and lied us into two needless wars BECAUSE HE STILL THINKS HE WAS RIGHT. I constantly point out the evil racism and sexism in the Repug Party BECAUSE THEY STILL THINK THAT'S THE WAY TO GO FOR AMERICA. You can grouse all you uwant about what some Dems did until 50 years ago, but since that time, they have been the party of INCLUSION, fighting for the Rights of all Americans and not being the vassals of the Uberrich and the cryptofascists who now run the GOP.
