It was collected by Peter Tamony. "In those sections of the South where the old traditions of gentle birth and culture still assert their ancient authority and draw the lines of social demarcation, there is commonly in use a vivid, brutal phrase to describe ostentatious display by the merely vulgar wealthy. The phrase is 'nigger rich.'" Racketeers and Their Methods (New York, 1930), page 81. Randy Roberts University of Missouri-Columbia
