While I'm on the subject...
"Wiggers" is the term for "white niggers"--white people who want to live
a black lifestyle. "Sand nigger" probably won't become "snigger" anytime
"White nigger"--one of those oxymorons like "military intelligence"--is
not new. This is from the New-York American, Correspondence of R. M. T. H.
from Wahsington, D. C., 22 February 1843, pg. 2, col. 3:
Mr. Wood evidently adopts the favorite idea on the Globe, that the
working men of the North, are mere slaves, without the name,--"white niggers"
indeed. He knows the character of his constituents.
"Mr. Wood" is New York Representative Fernando Wood. "The Globe"
published from Washington--I haven't gone through it.
