Oh, fer chrissakes! Just because a term happens to be offensive doesn't mean
it shouldn't be listed in a friggin' dictionary or spellchecker. Suppose I,
the incomparable El Jefe For Life, were writing a research paper on racism
in America - what if I wanted to describe how Mexican immigrants were treated
by the American government? What if I used "wetback" as an example? And how
many guys named "Witbeck" are there, anyway?
