    I assume before someone donates 5K they call around to make sure it’s legit even if they’re loaded.

    Until I learned the origin on here a few years ago, I had no idea it was a slur. I'm not sure how one would figure that out unless told.

    i don’t know how you couldn’t see it was a slur if you saw it spelled like I spelled it. It also depend on if you know that Gypsy is derogatory too. But as they say live and learn.

    The assumption should be that an insult is derogatory in some way or it isn't an insult, right? The next step is figuring out why it is derogatory, and if it's because it insinuates the person being insulted is a different race, religion or sexual orientation... guys, this is elementary stuff.

    fwiw usually when I write “you” in a reply I mean it in the general sense and not that specific person. So in that post I didn’t mean you specifically I meant anyone who has seen it spelled that way.

    Does the phrase “hold down the fort” have racist origins? I just used it and then thought of this thread.

    Someone from GoFundMe emailed me and it sounds like they’re going to coordinate with aclu and his local attorney to move the $ this week or next. Sounds like they need to check a lot of boxes because it’s such a large amount of money
