I suspect its just that you have a lot of, uumm, proud woodsman friends and relatives, who grew up with a slightly different mindset. Of the diverse
set of friends I have had, I mostly see it from the types who sometimes proudly identify as 'rednecks' or country types. And I have heard it from a
handful of Puerto Ricans, but they were usually not Trump supporters either. Have heard it from some Pacific Asian types.
I have met lots of closet racists, and open racists. I only really know 2 now who use such terminology. And its a 1 - 1 Clinton/PR, Trump/Redneck
split. They both have friends they respect and cherish of said race. Which I have actually always found funny in life. I have met racists, but they
still have good friends with the race they profess to be 'ist' about.
And then I met people who joke about it like if they are just playing the part at bars sometimes. But then they are drunk and still don't fight about
because they are good friends. Its just people man, I guess everyone's a contradiction somehow.
Oh, the racist puerto ricans I have met have been from New York and New Jersey. Whats that about? They have a history of Democrat and liberal support.
I meet a lot of people every year. Its just the way I roll. The good news, I have noticed it is really becoming infrequently encountered from year to
year. As a child, even I have been subjected to prejudiced terminology and insults by adults and fellow kids. It just seems to me to be growing out of
fashion with contemporary society.
Its all just words though, and most people in this decade hardly take it seriously anymore. I have yet to encounter a super, hardcore, public
demonstrators of it though like select BLM activists, rioters, or the neo-nazi's kkk types. I only ever seen them on TV. Are they real???
