  1. OMG! I just looked up “hobo.” The word is considered mildly offensive… hobos.

    That would mean “dumb****” is offensive to dumb****s. Unless they are stupid and it doesn’t bother them

  2. Oops! The link didn’t transfer. Wikipedia says a hobo is a migrant worker. That IS offensive!!! I have seen workers in Yuma harvesting lettuce Christmas morning. They were wearing Santa hats and singing Christmas carols in spanish. BLM protesters are no where near as dignified as the hard working field workers I have witnessed.
