    "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 I’d like to request that a Moderator remove in from the thread title.

    Coolie
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Coolie labourer circa 1900 in Zhenjiang, China. The bamboo pole he leans upon was used to hoist and carry the bundle at his feet with the pole over his shoulder and the bundle leaning against his back. On the left side of the image, in the background, another man uses this same technique of bearing a heavy load.Coolie

    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.

    Yes, and as you’ve never been to Asia, in the present day, you wouldn’t know and/or grasp that it is currently a racist/derogatory term.

    Hey Chickenshit - how come you left this out of your reference?

    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/wikipedi.../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 "******".
