Willy has lived in the South all of his life.  During that time Willy has seen a few people who Willy and others have considered uppity.  To Willy that simply meant that they were "snotty"  and trying to act better than those around them.

Willy has never heard of this as being strictly a racial slur.   Willy does see how it can be used with other words and give that meaning.   However, when someone called Mrs Obama "uppity"   to me that means that she is a little snotty and acts like she is better than those around her.   In Willy's opinion Mrs. Obama puts on an air sometimes that she is better than those around her.  Calling her uppity does not indicate any thing about race or color but attitude and attitude.

That is Willy's opinion.   What is yours!

10-4 Willy

She is uppity and so is Obama. It has nothing to do with the color of their skin. I don't care for their policies either. I didn't care for Jimmy Carter's policies either. They were much the same only this group running Washington D.C. wants the government to control every aspect of our lives.

I did laugh when she got booed at NASCAR. You just have to know your crowd.

Have a terrific day Willy. :)

Uppity/snotty has nothing at all to do with skin color. It is all about attitude...and boy, do the king and queen have ATTITUDE!
