  • This term dredged up a memory that I had long repressed. Unshelled Brazil nuts, which we always got in our Christmas stockings growing up in the South, were called nigger toes. It was many years before I realized that they were actually called Brazil nuts.

  • This derogatory term was actually the name of a candy that was around in the early 1950s when I was growing up.
    They were small jelly candies, black in color, flavored with licorice and shaped like a little naked baby. They were unwrapped penny candies.
