Apparently "boy" can be a racial slur.

Uh yeah. Honestly you probably didn't know because you're an immigrant.
Yeah I had no idea. However I found out because a woman I know ended up in trouble at work (school) because she called a 16yo kid "boy". And she's not an immigrant and had no clue about this.

How could you not know this!? We know this in Sweden...
In 15 year in Texas no one even mentioned it.

Well that's an interesting case. Because a 16 year old is a child still.
Yep. Clearly he wanted her to get in trouble, as he also said that she touched him (video proves otherwise).

Do you know what the context was? Technically she's not wrong. 16 years old is still a boy. I think the negative connotation would be only directed at grown men.

So what is racist about "boy"? Calling a man "boy" may be inappropriate but how is it racist?
Dude. The whole slave/ antebellum/pre-Civil Rights movement thing.

My understanding is that the student was causing problems at lunch and she said "Stop it, boy". He complained that she's violent and racist.

I have always told him, "who is a good boy? you are? yes you are a good boy, come here Rambo, let's play,, GOOOOOOD BOOOOOOYYYYYYY"
he is yet to look at like as if I was insulting him OR being racist
