Listening to two men talking today and one says to the other "ah sure it was black in there" meaning crowded, just in case you don't know.
Normally I wouldn't have even gave it a second thought but the man listening was a black man and I wondered if it could be considered offensive.
I wondered to myself is there any racial connotation to this phrase?? I'm thinking probably not.
But more interestingly for me I wondered where did we get this phrase from???
