WMUL Info[edit]

Note: Ape is updated as it was forgotten to include "Yard Ape" as shown in the below.

If helpful, the code for copy & paste convenience:

;Ape : (U.S.) a black person.<ref>Spears, loc. cit. p. 10.; also, ''Yard Ape'', ''Jungle Ape'', or ''Zoo Ape''</ref>
;Moon Cricket : (U.S. or U.K.) a black person.
;Mud Cricket : (U.S.) a black person.
;Spear Chucker : (U.S.) a black person.  Possibly taken from reference to African Tribal Descent. 


Hi there, in south america and specially in Spain theres' a term to refer to people from this origin, i suggest to add Sudaca, here the code and reference:

Is the spanish pejorative expression to describe a person from Latin America or 'Sudamérica' [1]

BTW: i'm technically a Sudaca too but even it's a pejorative term is widely used between latin americans too to describe our common origin

We need a citation to add this. See WP:RS. I googled some,but did not find anything suitable. Even something non-English would be OK. As long as it is accessible. Richard-of-Earth (talk) 09:10, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Request to add ethnicity[edit]

A ‘tandy’ is a derogatory term used to distinguish someone of Indian ethnicity. Origins appear to be in regards to the color of the skin, tan. Kurvestav (talk) 22:09, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

We would need a citation to a reliable source before we could add it. DuncanHill (talk) 22:11, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
