"Coolie" Meaning #1: an offensive name for an unskilled Asian laborer.

Nowhere in the story does it refer to this word, I personally find this offensive, and Iíd like to request that a Moderator remove in from the thread title.

coolie labor

coolie labor, term applied to unskilled laborers from Asia, especially from India and China. With the discontinuance of slavery, the use of Chinese and Indian contract labor in British and French colonies increased. Indenture of Indian coolies was usually for a term of five years, in return for wages, certain benefits, and the cost of passage; the terms were enforceable by penal sanctions. At the expiration of their terms, the laborers were free to reindenture or to seek other employment.

I am looking forward to your next mistake and your subsequent tears of innocence .

Connotation

When it first entered the English language, "coolie" was a designative term describing a low-status class of workers rather than a pejorative term for them. However, in the wake of centuries of colonialism and the social inequalities thereof, it has taken on not only the characteristics of a slur in the general sense but also that of a racial epithet. In this last sense, it has been applied to Asian people regardless of their professions or socio-economic standing with obviously insulting intent.

You fucked up megi - and I'm calling you on it. If you'd been to China you never would have written this - so just own your stupidity.

"Coolie"

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Coolieusa.jpg

(North America) unskilled Asian labor, usually Chinese (originally used in 19th-century for Chinese railroad labor). Possibly from Hindi/Telugu kuli, day laborer.[49] Also racial epithet for Indo-Caribbean people, especially in Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and South African Indians, where it is considered on par with "******".

Hardly. My change merely pointed out the petty idiocy of his claim. If people can be routinely called crackers or white trash or fundies on this board, other equal insults are acceptable. That anyone would seriously claim that a Lounge thread is a race-baiting trigger for colonial oppression is absurd.

Sadly, you have no idea of the number of witless complaints we get daily - it's sometimes astonishing. We seldom find these complaints reasonable. My intervention here was an object lesson; not a capitulation. If you can't see the backhanded humor in translating PC outrage into a thread title, I have failed. Failed you, I mean.
