    Loxuru,

    Don't call them 'spades'... Try African-Americans... ever 'Negro' would be better...

    It took me some research to grab that (that use of 'spade' is unknown this side of the Atlantic).:confused:


    They went for a spade....
    Could also mean this kind of a break (Spaten = German for spade, but also a famous Bavarian beer)::rolleyes:

    I'm aware of it, as a term best avoided, though whether it would cause offence would depend on context.
    Obviously from 'black as the ace of...' But of course it's considered a virtue, especially in the north of England,
    to call a spade a spade (and not a bloody shovel).

    Same principle as Arcimboldo's 'Lente' - let her wait, let her sweat!

    It is in known in England...

    ...Some spade said 'rock and rollers, you're all the same
    Man that's your instrument.' I felt so ashamed!!!

    I know the song, but the meaning of English slang words is not always clear. Sometimes, The Channel is as deep and wide as the Atlantic is...

    I'd never heard that term before either, and I've lived in 5 countries, including the US. Always happy to expand my knowledge. Now what to do with a new racial epithet? :rolleyes: :confused::D

    Growing up in the South in the 60s, I occasionally heard the term "spade" used for black people, mostly by folks from my grandparents' generation. I think it was already falling out of favor then. The Urban Dictionary says it was most common in the years after the Civil War. I think the last time I heard it used was by a black comedian.
