Went out to eat with an old friend last night...

So I went out to eat with an old friend last night and she is talking about stopping at Habitat for Humanity. She was just talking about nothing in particular and she mentions that they just got a huge truck load of supplies in and they had two black guys unloading the truck. The weird thing is when she says this she lowers her voice at "black guys". I proceed to ask her why she lowered her voice when she said "black guys"? She tells me she doesn't want to offend anyone.

Huh? Is there any "black guys" out there that get offended by being called black? Does "black guy" have a negative connotation assigned to it? I wouldn't think a "black guy" would mind being called black any more then a "white guy" would mind being called white. Neither is truly white or black.

Just curious to know what everyone else thinks about this.

Yeah, I kinda thought that too but I also believe there was a little more to the conversation I just don't recall what it was exactly. Just found the hushed "black guys" was weird.

Yeah, at least she just used the term "black guys."

Recently, I gave these guys I didn't know a ride across town from the bar. One says, "We're headed through nigs-ville." Lucky for him his buddy told him to knock that shit off, or he was about to be standing on the corner of said "-ville."

Hmmm...normally not. I think the question is, would she have said "two white guys" had they been white? It's not offensive (although I'm brown...not black), but the way she said it sounds kind of weird.

Yea...if she was trying to describe the men, it would probably be ok to say black guys. But it sounds like there was no need to be descriptive there.

She could have just said a couple of guys unloaded the truck.

She wasn't being racist as far as I can tell given the limited information.

They were unloading a truck. If she hadn't identified them as black, people would have assumed they were hispanic.
