White Americans have a lot to atone for in their violent racist oppression of blacks

Shell, have you considered making your responses a little more succinct? Especially when you're endlessly repeating yourself. My eyes kinda glazed over there man.
And, you noticed all these endless repetitions, from simply glazing over by posts. I suppose it is as good an excuse as any. But I WILL consider brevity in any future posts to you.

The first recorded use of the word it was to describe Indians. If you're using it incorrectly then that's not my fault.
It must of taken an inordinate amount of effort, for you to read the first sentence, on the first page, under the heading "wog origin" on the internet. Unfortunately, its origin is NOT really the issue here. The issue(point) here is, is the term derogatory, divisive, and racially offensive? But I guess it's okay to know all the OTHER documented derogatory uses of the word. But nonetheless, an "E" for effort.

They're smarter then shell
I truly hope so John. For their sake.

no effort required. I already know about the entemology of the word. That way I can laugh at all he morons who use it incorrectly just like I laugh at you every time you say something stupid ... which FYI, is often

Really? Then you should also know that there is no such word as "entermology", except in your own mind. The red underline was kind of a giveaway in the preview post. The "ETYMOLOGY", of the word "wog" is the study of the words' origin and development. This includes its usages back in the 1920's, and its usages throughout history. Therefore, it is NOT limited to only YOUR meaning/usage of the word.

It was a derogatory slang by Whites back then, and still is today. So, it has come a long way from being a slang for "golliWOG"(black-faced doll) in 1895, to the derogatory slang in Britain for Asians and Dark-skinned immigrants(Blacks), to your Australian version,

"According to the Macquarie Australian dictionary, the word "wog" originated in the 1920s as British nautical slang for Indians. Australian soldiers in the Middle East picked it up in the war and brought it home, where it came to be applied to postwar migrants - many of whom came from Italy, Greece, Malta, Yugoslavia and Lebanon. A certain ambiguity persists, however, and many consider it simply a term to cover anyone from a foreign land.".

But again, the words' origin is not the issue here. It is its derogatory meaning and usage today. I guess from your perspective, you must really laugh a lot!

I did spell it right, you moron! And, if it is NOT how you misspelt the term, then what is it that you are denying? If you are going to laugh at others for their use of a word, or brag about your own understanding of the term describing the words' history, then at least know how to spell the term that you are claiming to know.

I have never commented or criticized anyone's spelling, grammar, or their syntactic errors. As long as I can understand what they are saying, I don't grammatically give a shit how they say it. This is NOT a creative writing forum. But in your case, I am purposely making an exception.

Like I said, you must really laugh a lot.

Entomology is the study of insects. Etymology concerns the origin of words. Is entemology an Australian specific spelling?

I learn a lot of new words from ya'll because you have a different vocabulary. I learned entomology from watching CSI back in the day.

No Texan, "ENTOMOLOGY" and "ETYMOLOGY" are spelled the same, and mean the same in all english-speaking countries. But there are no such words as "entemology" and "entermology".

John just has a serious problem admitting when he has made a mistake. So, he deflects blame, attention, or he just changes the goal posts. Everytime the depths of his ignorance is exposed. Which is often.

I wasn't trying to brow beat anybody over spelling. I had never heard etymology enough to feel comfortable using it. Ya'll are expanding my vocabulary and I appreciate it.

I also need to go to the dictionary, on some of the posts I've read. This is called "intellectual courage". It is one of the 6 types of courages that every person possesses in varying degrees. To stay open-minded and willing to learn new things, despite our experiences and core beliefs, is a very rare quality in the human condition. https://www.quantumkoan.com/the-six-types-of-courage/

As I've said before, as long as I can understand what a person is saying, I don't give a shit about their syntax, grammar, or their spelling. This is not a creative writing forum. But in his case, I AM making an exception.

when you cited my spelling you got it wrong ya loser ...... this was how you claimed I spelled it 'entermology '.... this is how I spelt it 'entemology'
Are you rejoicing that I misspelled your misspelt word? Wow. You never cease to amaze me. Maybe you should stop laughing at how others use the word "wog". Maybe you should stop bragging about your true knowledge of the word, based on your exclusive understanding of its etymology. Maybe you should first learn how to spell the word, before making any of these claims? It does cast serious doubts on your credibility.

just pointing out your stupidity in misspelling a word whilst you're crying about someone else's spelling. Glass houses and all that.

And you really need to stop going on a rant with every single post ....most people don't have hoursd to read your crap and you come off sounding like a lunatic. Just say what you want to say and shut the fuck up.
