Just as back in the days black men began greeting one another simply as man. It still happens today. I always assumed that was just because they either forgot a dudes name or it was a kind of homie greeting. Recently while reading Damn The Man by Tom Dalzell I’ve learned that actually stemmed post slavery. It was a term of endearment since the slave owners addressed black men as boy. Did you all know that? What are some terms that we use on a daily bases that has historically meaning?
