An *excellent* suggestion! May I suggest _blaccent_ as a candidate for WOTY?


However, I may be over a dekkid behind the curve WRT to what Wiktionary
defines as "US, nonstandard, _humorous_ [emphasis supplied], neologism," in
print since at least '03.

Will there ever come a time when blatant racism is not regarded as but jest?
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
