Chino: Welcome to the forum. 1,800+ posts and you never came across niggardly? It's a running forum joke.

It's just a missing comma and is an incomplete sentence.

"Walmart selling black Barbie for less, then white Barbie _________."

Slap a Disney logo on her and sell it as the Princess from the latest Disney film and there wouldn't be a problem.

Who in this thread is suggesting going to a group of black people and using the word? Come on now, people.

My only experience on the matter is that the black one actually goes for more.

I imagine Samuel L. Jackson would step in, and then him and I would run around the city solving riddles.

But I bet even a sizeable number of whites out there wouldn't know what the word means and would take offense to it. That's probably a word that should be retired altogether.

Hmm, I would have raised the price of the white barbies. I bought my niece a black bubblicious (bubble gum chewing) doll back around 1980 or so. I think they were the same price as the white ones.

"Black Bubblicious" would make for an awesome porn star name.

Yes, let's have the PC police remove words from daily use. That sounds like a great idea.

Are you white? If so, I can see how none of this affects you and how easily it is for you to be that way. You may even be getting a big laugh out of it. I think black people have the say in it. There are so few black people on this board. I'd rather hear their opinions.

Tell it to David Howard. One shouldn't have to apologize just because some knuckle dragging moran doesn't know whether a word is cromulent. You should just whack them over the head with an OED and move on.
