It's also a racial slur.

"The Tar-Baby is a doll made of tar and turpentine used to entrap Br'er Rabbit in the second of the Uncle Remus stories. "

Isn't it also a racial slur for blacks? (Whoops, is "blacks" still a racial slur?)

Re: from wiki... i read this book as a kid

right. but in this day and age (the uncle remus stories are very very old), the whole tar baby thing is considered to be rather racist. disney won't even re-release "song of the south" (movie based on those uncle remus stories) because of it.

from the same wiki: "...some Americans now consider 'tar baby' to have negative connotations revolving around negative images of African-Americans.[2] In recent years, several politicians who have publicly used the term have encountered some controversy, mocking, and censure from African-American civil rights leaders, members of the popular daily media, and other politicians."

not saying you meant it that way... but just wanted to let you know.

Good on you for the tire rotation thing...I've had to change one flat and it was a nightmare.

much easier at home in the driveway with all the proper tools on hand than on the side of the road, trust me!
