Can anyone tell me about when the term "hood rat" originated? Google has
around 56,000 or so hits and most of the first 10 pages seem to be about a
movie by that name that came out around 2001. I remember hearing the middle
school kids in Wichita Falls, Texas using the term a few years before that.
