Pork Chop Is a Racist Slur?
I can't seem to find any info online at the moment about how "Pork Chop" is a racial slur towards Latino people... Does anyone know where the origins of this come from? The only story I can find connecting the term to racism is the recent mascot story from Philadelphia. Can someone enlighten me? I thought it would be used to insult someone of a heavy build. I've heard it used as a term of affection in some comedy, I think, but I'm guessing that wasn't in the case of Mr. Lopez.
