Topic: Insult


  
  insult definition - Dictionary - MSN Encarta
English has insulting words for most races and cultures with which its speakers have come into extended contact, and for so-called minority groups within English-speaking societies, even though such groups can and do constitute demographic majorities in many regions.
When the people insulted are English speakers, the insulting words can and often do become part of their own vocabulary.
Those insulted will generally avoid using these terms in interaction with their insulters, since to do so would be to endorse the insulters' view of them.
