    There’s nothing inherently negative (or positive) about giving someone a skin burn. Most likely, the term (both of them) came from someone claiming it’s something a specific group would/might do in a fight or something. It’s an almost certainly incorrect attribution, but I don’t see any racism.

    There's nothing nice about P in beer...

    Historically, if it's made with hops it's IPL at best, not IPA.

    But apparently, that may have changed...

    Everything I've seen/heard ever refers to the color it turns your skin. This is literally the first time I've heard otherwise .

    Lager vs ale is not about hops, rather it's about the fermentation. Longer at lower temps is a lager.

    We have several in the seattle area, but my favorite is georgetown Brewing . They make an unfiltered IPA that's just delicious .

    In the olden days, ale pretty much meant hopeless beer.

    Well, it did in English at least :p

    It's possible they predate america, and have become so 'specialist' as to have no fame nowadays.

    There's usually a good handful of gruits at most beerfests around here...

    As a side note. I am fine with a bit of racism so long as it isn't malicious.

    I find I am more racist towards people I trust.

    Which means the less racist I am being the more I am factoring in their race.

    Since none of you seem to get the issues here (Steve excluded)

    Indian burn: self explanatory

    Gypped: Assuming that someone who takes advantage is a gypsy

    Jewed someone: fairly certain this comes from nazis, that a jew takes advantage of others money-wise

    shortbus/tard: making fun of someone for having below average intelligence.

    In my profession, I have seen people be upset by all 4/5 of those, and in some cases exacerbating the issues. It's the same as using the N-word or the C-word, but because they're not for 'minority' groups, it's considered okay.

    The two big ones that people have directed towards me are 'fake paddy', and either 'spic' or 'spicorican'. Those offend me for different reasons (I am Irish/cuban), and as far as people are concerned I don't fit in with either group. There really is no reason to use a term that offends people, and the idea that it is the fault of the offended is ridiculous.

    That would be like me saying someone being punched in the face being upset by that is being a baby. I'm okay with it, and most likely if I met one of you and you punched me in the face, I wouldn't care all that much (it happens often enough in sparring). But if you punched a random person in the face (In NY at least) you could get arrested for assault. Just because you're okay with something doesn't mean everyone else is, nor does it mean that they should be okay with it.

    Most of us, if we admit it, are that way. It's why black comedians in the US can get away with saying things white comedians often cannot.

    A friend of mine who was black (he still is black, we just lost touch) understood this well, and he and I often made "racist" comments at each other - usually backwards, making fun of the stereotypes. I had a couple of friends like that in high school. We'd pass each other in the hall, and they'd call me some nasty epithet usually reserved for blacks, and I'd return the favor with some nasty epithet usually reserved for whites.123
