Pepeni is not derogatory


THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR EXPALNATION. I AM NOT ASHANTE BUT I THINK YOUR EXPLANATIONS MAKE A LOT OF SENSE. SIMILARLY I DON'T THINK BLACK PEOPLE WERE REFERRED TO AS SUCH WITH CONTEMPT. BUT SOME HOW ALONG THE WAY SUCH EXPRRESSIONS AS BLACKMAN, TANI, PEPENI ETC CAME TO DENOTE SOMETHING DEROGATORY SUCH AS NEGRO (SPANISH FOR BLACK) TO NIGGER.

IN ANY CASE YOUR ELUCIDATION IS APPRECIATED
