THAT'S NOT RACIAL TRANSCENDENCE  1:35 pm March 19, 2012

‘Don’t Re-Nig’ Lady Has Magic Dictionary That Says ‘N-Word’ Is Not Racist

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

ReloadWe’re not sure what “dictionary” Miz Paula Smith of Hinesville, Georgia, “reads,” but she clearly has Knowledge on her side when she says the n-word “is not racist.” Roger Friedman of Forbes got Miz Smith on the tallyphone to ask her why her company, Stickatude, has been selling some perhaps-inelegant bumper stickers that have doubtless been enlivening your MyFace page all week. “According to the dictionary,” she told him, “[the N word] does not mean black. It means a low down, lazy, sorry, low down person. That’s what the N word means.”

How else is “Don’t Re-Nig” not even racist?

“And besides Obama is not even black. He’s got a mixture of race. It’s his choice of what his nationality is. I’m a mixed breed. I call myself a Heinz 57,” she says, referring to an ancestry that’s part of French, Scottish, and German.

There you have it. Logic!


“I do find it amazing and entertaining that one of our stickers has become a racist thing,” Ms. Smith told me. I asked her if she thought the “N” Word was a bad word? “No,” she said, ” because I don’t use it.”

That lady sounds nice. Let’s all spend the rest of the morning in a nice, quiet, darkened place, maybe with a nice cool cloth on our eyes, thinking about how nice that lady sounds. Nice. [Forbes]

Last time I checked, re-nig means to go back on your word, which makes these bumper stickers nonsensical…and racist.

Holly March 19, 2012 at 1:42 pm

but in that sense, it's spelled renege.

beavertank March 19, 2012 at 1:43 pm

I fail to see any way of reading that sticker that's not "don't re-blah".

Which is funny, because as every racist should know by now, once you go blah you never go back whah.

horsedreamer_1 March 19, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Re-blah? Is that what reinforced the antebellum economy?

metamarcisf March 19, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Didn't you post this same stupid comment last week?

BornInATrailer March 19, 2012 at 1:58 pm

This reply has confused me.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the recipient of the Right-Wing-Troll-of-the-Week award at Wonkettez!

He must be so proud of himself *sniff*

Boojum_Reborn March 19, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Renege means go back on your word; niger is Latin, meaning "black".

Thus "nig" or "nigger" only means low down, etc., to people who equate those pejoratives with "black".

hagajim March 19, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Good point on the renege spelling…hell I almost spelled spelling speeling…to much time on the Wonkette…or with the blahs…

lefty74 March 19, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Ronald Regan did not allow the blah jelly beans in his jar?

Everyone knows the blah ones represent evil and Satan and should not be mixed in with all the other pretty colors. Especially as we approach Zombie Jebus season

Renege is a penalty call in card games like euchre. You cannot trump a heart with a spade if you still have a heart. Get it?

Boojum_Reborn March 19, 2012 at 8:29 pm

Makinglifehell March 19, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Prolly gonna regret this but…renege means to go back on your word. I distinctly recall the President saying: "The fine…(for not playing along with the individual mandate) …will be zero dollars." Since that time, I have learned otherwise. (From the .gov, no less.)
Obvs, the sticker is racist. But nonsensical? Don't get me wrong, I love me some current POTUS, but clearly he has made compromises that make him seem, to some, like a flip-flopper supreme with extra mustard.
I'm not justifying any of it, I'm just sayin'.

Negropolis March 20, 2012 at 2:38 am

Ummm…WTF?!

KillerBoob March 19, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Exactly. I'd love to know why, if the N word is nothing exceptional, what does her bumper sticker even MEAN?

I got in trouble in first grade for calling people the N word, for the same reason. (I read in the dictionary that it meant an ignorant person and I was always told not to call people "stupid".) So technically what she says it true. But I find it funny that a 1st grader caught on faster than she did.

horsedreamer_1 March 19, 2012 at 7:01 pm

I made the same mistake with 'tarbaby'. Honestly, I thought it was a nonsense, Seussian construct, an onomatopoeic expression like whirligig or foofarah.

Tundra Grifter March 19, 2012 at 1:37 pm

I certainly can see Ms. Smith's frustration – who knew the N-word could be considered racist?

In other news, I think the GNoPee knows more about the down low than it does about "low down…low down" people.

Lascauxcaveman March 19, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Obv she meant nigger in the nonracist way.

Why is this so hard for you librul droolers to unnerstan?

GOPCrusher March 19, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Obviously, if you saw this bumper sticker as racist, you are a racist.

Crank_Tango March 19, 2012 at 3:47 pm

the real racists are the ones who notice racism; the old "he who smelt it dealt it" theory of race relations.

So it's finally happened; after so many years of saying outrageously racist things and claiming it's not racist, the bigots are actually saying the N-word itself is somehow not racist. Fuck, have we finally reached peak wingnut?

Maman March 19, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Not until some semi-respected asshat says it on tv. I am guessing it will happen in October.

Millennial Malaise March 19, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Since Pat Buchanan was fired, who will be the irresponsible asshole to throw the first N-bomb? My money is on Ann Coulter.

anniegetyerfun March 19, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Ann is a horrible, horrible person, but I don't think racism is her thing. My bet's on Limbaugh.

Tilley March 19, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Ann is truly horrible, horrible, but I don't think she's a person.

CessnaDriver March 19, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Actually, racism IS her thing.

She's an anti-gay fag hag. No cognitive dissonance there.

tessiee March 19, 2012 at 9:14 pm

"Ann is a horrible, horrible person, but I don't think racism is her thing."

Perhaps not quite so overtly, but I can totally see her whining about how the big bad liberals are once again persecuting the poor little conservatives so that they can't say "nigger", and/or hypocrites who suppress *other* people's freedom of speech.

SorosBot March 19, 2012 at 1:47 pm

And probably on Fox – my money's on Sarah Palin.

GOPCrusher March 19, 2012 at 3:43 pm

I'm taking the under. And the debate for the summer will be why do the filthy liburuls continue their racist ways of considering the word "Nigger" a racist term.

CthuNHu March 19, 2012 at 4:37 pm

I once knew a good and kind woman — New Englander by birth, transplanted Southern redneck by choice — who sincerely did not see the N-word as applying to black people. A direct quote: "There are black n-s and there are white n-s. It's not about what color you are." It simply meant to her a scummy, lowdown person. She told me, with 100% sincerity, that at one point in her life the only people who treated her decently were the black women she worked with. So it's not like she was racist or anything.

Oh, and once I walked into, and out of, a retail business with her, at which point she asked me, "Ugh, did you see that? That just makes me sick." She found it hard to believe that I hadn't noticed the disgusting sight of a black guy in uniform with a white woman hanging on his arm.

So, um, yeah.

horsedreamer_1 March 19, 2012 at 7:04 pm

So, was she from Southie, or Kennebunkport?

snoopyfan2010 March 19, 2012 at 9:43 pm

I hope after hearing that you called her the N word as often as possible……because it isn't racist of course.

beavertank March 19, 2012 at 1:44 pm

But that would mean a sudden escalation in the price of wingnuts, and they seem to be getting cheaper every day…

Geminisunmars March 19, 2012 at 1:44 pm

I suspect there is plenty more wingnutia out there. Peaking won't happen until sometime in November.

donner_froh March 19, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Peak wingnut will happen when someone is called racist for using the N-word on TV and is defended because attacking him is reverse racism.

Jukesgrrl March 19, 2012 at 9:15 pm

And if that takes place, someone named Palin will be involved.

WIDTAP March 19, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Sorry, but there is no such thing as a final form winutter. It's turtles all the way down, my friend.

It's turtles cars on cinder blocks all the way down.

boobookitteh March 19, 2012 at 1:59 pm

They clearly have divided by n-word. Worse than dividing by zero.

AbandonHope March 19, 2012 at 2:02 pm

No. They have yet to say that the forced indentured servitude of black individuals is not racist.

SorosBot March 19, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Oh there have been more than a few Confederate apologists who have actually tried to claim that slavery wasn't really that bad.

Tilley March 19, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Down here in Dixie, we still claim the War of Northern Aggression was all about states' rights. To own slaves.

LetUsBray March 19, 2012 at 3:20 pm

And even though it was all about states' rights, the Confederate constitution expressly forbade its member states the right to abolish slavery within said state. For states' rights, of course.

Jukesgrrl March 19, 2012 at 9:16 pm

I think that was Haley Barbour.

GOPCrusher March 19, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Well, it did certainly cut down on the unemployment rate of African-Americans.

comrad_darkness March 19, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Meaning the St. Patty's Day Irish dance, of course. Nothing ractist here, either.

emmelemm March 19, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Good one.

anniegetyerfun March 19, 2012 at 1:49 pm

I actually had no idea that this was an ethnic slur until just Googling it now.

Tundra Grifter March 19, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Louis Armstrong killed the commercial potential for his cover of "Just a Giggolo" when he changed the line to "When the end comes, I know / He was just a Jig I know."

Radio stations all over America refused to play it.

Tundra Grifter March 19, 2012 at 10:39 pm

That speaks very well of you.

Actually, while "Jig" is a slur, "The jig is up" simply means "The dance is over." It's a misunderstanding to suggest the phrase is a slur – although "jig" sure is when used in a racial sense and not a dance.

Remember when "Little Black Sambo" was banned? It's about a boy in India, not Africa. But folks got offended and that was that.

Dr_Zoidberg March 19, 2012 at 2:23 pm

She once saw a black person, in a magazine, at the doctor's office! So she's totally not racist!

Maman March 19, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Well, I suppose that words truly have no negative value on their own. It is how they are used that embues them with racism. And Miss Paul did it.

anniegetyerfun March 19, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Another site, called Stumpy’s Stickers, was originally credited with selling the Obama sticker.

Stumpy's Stickers DOES sell this, as well as Confederate Flag stickers and bumperstickers featuring images of hooded KKK members. Stumpy's believes in the First Amendment, y'all.

CZL March 19, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Not to mention they sell many things for 88 cents. Why 88? Because white trash are fond of substitution number ciphers, and H is the 8th letter of the alphabet. 88 = HH = Heil Hitler. Yep, let's see Glenn Beck put that on his chalkboard.

anniegetyerfun March 19, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Holy fuck, seriously? I honestly had no idea about that. Didn't Walmart start doing that a few years ago, because they figured that people had gotten wise to the whole “.99″ thing?

Fare la Volpe March 19, 2012 at 2:48 pm

You'll notice two numbers that serve as white power "code" so to speak. One is 88 because it's a cipher for Heil Hitler. The other is 14 because it's the number of words in David Lane's white supremacist creed, "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." White supremacists will often identify themselves online with the label 14/88 somewhere on their profile. The other way you can identify them is if they incorporate the name Turner into their screen name, as it's the name of the protagonist of the Timothy McVeigh training novel (seriously; McVeigh used it as reference for when he was planning his attack in OK City) The Turner Diaries.

I had a TA during my undergrad years who wrote his Master's thesis by going undercover in a white power group for six months and recording their activities – was nearly killed towards the end. He's the one who got me interested in the work of the Southern Poverty Law Center and their monitoring of hate groups so as to keep them from ever entering the mainstream of the body politic. It's a terrifying and fascinating field of study.

CZL March 19, 2012 at 3:30 pm

In addition to 1488 they also use "2316" for "wp" or "white power."

I saw a guy at the post office last week with a shaven head, and 14/88 an 23/16 tattooed around Schutzstaffel lightning bolts.

These people exist. They vote (unless they are convicted felons). They must be stopped.

anniegetyerfun March 19, 2012 at 3:34 pm

I've seen “WP” – that horrid creature that Sandra Bullock's husband was schtupping had it tattooed on her thighs.

gingerland62 March 21, 2012 at 10:17 pm

It is amazing to me that they can recite the alphabet let alone use such a complex code for their racism.

Sorry to burst your paint ball, but that's water-based. That's why you can wash it off after an afternoon battling it out.

Negropolis March 20, 2012 at 2:50 am

I've never for the life of me understood this idea that immigrants (particularly refugees) have it easy in this country. I've even had a few extended family members that truly believe this, and I don't know where they get it from. They honestly believe that the government gives you some kind of "Welcome to America" package with cash and benefits for life. I'd not be surprised if they believe that they get to cut in line at the grocery store.

JustPixelz March 19, 2012 at 1:47 pm

I love her logic. HOORAY the floodgates are open. For example — and I'll probably get banned — "retard" means to slow down. So calling someone the r-word is not an insult. It just means they drive slowly or something. And "sack of shit" merely refers to a gardening product sold at Home Depot or whatnot. So calling James Inhofe a "sack of shit" is way of complimenting his green thumb. And "teabagging" just describes how tea is placed in paper filters for steeping. So calling someone a "teabagger" is a way to recognize their beverage skills.

So, if the Democrats had come up with a bumper sticker in early 2004 featuring a picture of a tarred and feathered W, and beneath that, the slogan, "Don't Re-Tarred", the Republicans would have been fine with that — right?

Christ on a fucking donkey show, don't read the comments on that site: "Well gadzooks! When I were a youngin (hock, p'ting), 'nigger' meant a ign'ant lazy shiftless sombitch. Nows all these libruls tells me it just a nasty word fer a negro! Theys changin' the meanin's o' thangs! I am outraged!! (hock, p'ting)"

You'd think the sheer fact that you have to read a dictionary would turn off most wingnuts, but regrettably that doesn't seem to be the case.

Baconzgood March 19, 2012 at 3:13 pm

When I was a kid Quark meant to croak like a frog….now it means now it's a partical of matter!

LetUsBray March 19, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Wait… It doesn't mean a big-eared space barkeep?

bikerlaureate March 19, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Today I learned they welcome comments… on a dictionary site.

That first response is a thing of beauty.

My Webster Dictionary at home defines the term "uncouth".

…and yet, oddly, the entry for "uncouth" doesn't seem to acknowledge its past as a noun rather than an adjective.

deelzebub March 19, 2012 at 4:54 pm

It takes a whole shitload of stupid to look something up in an authoritative reference material and then just go ahead a believe whatever dunbassed thing you were unsure of in the first place.

I wonder the amount of smelling salts and hurt feelings and outrage if someone was selling "Don't Re-Nazi in 2012"? Regarding the fascists the Republics have become.

And besides Obama is not even black

Then how can he be a Mooslim and a Soshulist? Answer me that, smart lady.

SorosBot March 19, 2012 at 1:50 pm

"“[the N word] does not mean black. It means a [bunch of stupid stereotypes about black people]" Yep, she's really helping her case there; totally not a racist.

Tundra Grifter March 19, 2012 at 1:51 pm

“And besides Obama is not even black…It’s his choice of what his nationality is."

Race is a choice. Being gay or straight is a choice.

I guess the right wing nutz really do support freedom of choice.

David Sedaris defines White Trash as "Irish, Scottish, and at least three other things". For Paula Smith, I think we'll have to say "close enough".

anniegetyerfun March 19, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Did he throw "Cherokee" in there? Because I've never met anyone honkey that believed themselves to be less than 1/16 Native American. They HATE Injuns, of course, and all thems casinos and welfare. But they have a dreamcatcher hangin' in their kitchen, because their great granddaddy done married a squaw.

not that Dewey March 19, 2012 at 10:11 pm

In the South, at one point, there was a lot of Cherokee-raping going on, so I suppose some of them may actually be telling the truth.

Out here where I live, a state criss-crossed with Reservations, the anti-Native resentment is so strong among the White Trash that they don't even bother to claim this particular form of victimhood. They resent all the perceived "special privileges" that the Natives get (lack of roads, water and electricity? Diabetes and alcoholism?) They think it's terribly unfair that the Reservations have Sovereign status, and they don't. And they particularly resent, as you said, the fact that they are powerless against the lure of the casino, where desperate dumb crackers go to lose all their money. Poor, dumb, resentful crackers.

anniegetyerfun March 19, 2012 at 10:30 pm

Yes, of course; I don't doubt that there's a fair amount of Native American blood in any American family that arrived before 1830 (MY asshole ancestors, of course, kept me white and doughy by only arriving from Europe AFTER WWII). The worst white trash that I ever knew not only resented Natives for their "special rights" but also inevitably lived on welfare for a better part of their lives.

Jukesgrrl March 19, 2012 at 10:15 pm

That description applies to at least half the native Arizonans I've met here. They don't want any Native Americans to come off the reservation (except to serve in Iraq and/or Afghanistan), but representations of Kokopelli are all over their houses. And they have no idea that it's a fertility deity and his flute represents a big ol' indigenous penis.

neiltheblaze March 19, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Eggzackly. Just like "honkey" doesn't mean "dumbfuck racist cracker" either.

Well, I call you a Fucking Racist, referring to your lack of class that's part of white trash, cracker, and stupidity.

An African-American whose family has been in this country for 400 years could have just as many European genes as Barack Obama, thanks to slave-rape, aka the Planters' War On Defenseless Black Women. Racist wingnuts need to read some history and drop the "halfrican" banjo, which they stole from West Africans anyhoo.

bureaucrap March 19, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Here is what "dictionary.com" has to say about the usage of this word.

Usage note
The term nigger is now probably the most offensive word in English.

Clearly Ms Smith failed to check this particular dictionary.

dennis1943 March 19, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Mark it on the calendar………a bonehead racist attempts to quote the dictionary…….

Ms Smith's got no problem with the president's choice of nationality — the problem is he's so uppity.

Miz Paula Smith of Hinesville, Georgia, is just the cutest thing, and a wonderful person with an elegant sense of humor. She thought of that word all by herself, and her bridge book club members laughed and laughed. Then she took her word to church, and the congregation laughed and laughed. Soon the whole city of Hinesville was laughing and laughing at Paula's word and she decided to make a political bumpity sticker and share her word with the entire country to bring joy and unity among the racists.

Today in AZ. History: [okay, not today, but in the past today, sorta]

Claims of prejudice were made against Mecham after he defended the use of the word "pickaninny" to describe black children, claimed that high divorce rates were caused by working women, claimed America is a Christian nation to a Jewish audience, and said a group of visiting Japanese businessmen got "round eyes" after being told of the number of golf courses in Arizona. In response to claims that he was a racist, Mecham said, "I've got black friends. I employ black people. I don't employ them because they are black; I employ them because they are the best people who applied for the cotton-picking job."[27] These and other statements only strengthened the allegations of racism made against the governor following the MLK day cancellation.

Ahh, Ev Mecham. A man ahead of his time in making Arizona look ridiculous.

James Michael Curley March 19, 2012 at 2:12 pm

This is what is beautiful about America. A dumb bimbo can use the most offensive term in the language against the guy with the most predator drones in the world and live to laugh about it. Seriously, would anyone miss Hinesville, Georgia where 'Home for a Day or a Lifetime' feels about the same.

Ms. Smith no doubt longs for the days when "low down, lazy, sorry, low down persons" would call her ilk "Miz Smith", chauffeur, cook and clean for them, and raise those adorable little pick-a-low-down-lazy-sorry-low-down-persons.

It's all a typographical misunderstanding, you dumb libtards. She meant the sticker to say "Don't Re-JIG," because the word jigaboo isn't racist either. Sheesh! You socialist abortion-havers sure are thin-skinned bunch.

anniegetyerfun March 19, 2012 at 2:21 pm

But with more FUPA, is my guess.

fartknocker March 19, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Paula has a couple of problems living in Hinesville. First, blacks make up over 35% of the population and also experience the highest rate of poverty for Liberty, County. Secondly, Liberty County overwhelming voted for Obama in the 2008 election:
http://www.city-data.com/elec08/LIBERTY-GEORGIA.h

So what we have here is most likely a White, middle-aged married woman who puts great faith in God who was probably a homemaker. She's pissed because more black voters elected a Black Man for president. And given her community's ethnicity, they'll probably do it again in 2012.

Poor Paula, she should move somewhere that doesn't have as many Blacks, Hispanics, Asians or Middle Easterners. I'm sure she would love Wasilla this time of year.

GOPCrusher March 19, 2012 at 4:01 pm

I got a dollar that says that Ms. Paula Smith does not have one of these bumper stickers proudly displayed on her personal vehicle.

mrblifil March 19, 2012 at 2:35 pm

I see, so if a Halfrican person takes offense it is because they choose to side with the darker aspects of their melanin portfolio. Kind of a "heads I win, tails you lose" scenario.

Guess she didn't get to the part in the dictionary definition where the provenance of the word is dealt with. She might be interested in the derivation from the French word "Negre" and the Spanish word "Negro" both of which mean…"black." Isn't that "amazing and entertaining?"

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ March 19, 2012 at 2:36 pm

After I commented on this article about elebenty times, I started seeing ads on Wonkette's main page encouraging me to date black women in my area.

I'd be happy to, but I'm a little concerned about the context under which I am being encouraged to do so. Unless the Wonkette ad engine is, all, "Girlfriend really hates racists! Maybe she wants herself a nice black lady!" In which case, I'm cool with it.
