;Mud Cricket : (U.S.) a black person.
;Spear Chucker : (U.S.) a black person. Possibly taken from reference to African Tribal Descent.
In a very celebrated and widely published u.s. govt document written, edited, debated, ratified, and signed by all members of congress, Native Americans as a race are, without any qualification whatsoever, called, merciless savages. Therefore, "savages" could be correctly added to your list of racial slurs against Native Americans. Jm8069337 (talk) 02:43, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
We do not include "general-purpose insults" on this list. "Savage" could be used to slur a broad range of ethnicities. See the explanation on the top of List of ethnic slurs that this list is suppose to be derived from. Richard-of-Earth (talk) 10:47, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
