While Joey is all ramped up on losing his Pickle today, It got me thinking about all the words we use for each other that could be considered offensive. My non Italian friends used to call me “Guinea” all the time in our younger years. I never considered it offensive at the time. It all depends on how it’s said.
If say Kim Smith called me a dumb Guinea for some of my posts I make on GMG I would take offense. Because I know she’s not the type to use that kind of language. Now if Joey or Ed Collard (a non Italian) called me a Dumb Guinea I would not take offense because most likely it would be in a joking way. So what am I trying to say? Who the hell knows. Have a nice day.
