I am referring to Lana Strickland's response to what different areas call a "pile on." I guess Alabama is more diverse than people would think. It could also have to do with the fact that we played with black and white children whereas I assume that one would not use the term "nigger" when playing with black children. Also, someone mentioned the game "Red Rover." Is this the same game where someone says "Red Rover, red rover, I dare Suzie (or anyone) to come over?" If so, this was one of my favorite games when I was a child in Delaware.
