Southern colloquialisms are best left in the South. BTW, you’d only refer to black men (even older ones) as Mister-First Name “Mister Marcus” and women (particularly adult black women) say “Miss Shirley” in that manner. I’m sure some sociologist could research it and find its root in Jim Crow and trying to diminish grown adults by referring to them by their first name and not surnames. I’m sure it’d be very unacceptable for me to refer to Saban as “Mister Nick”. Just sayin... Fight On! 1988Trojan likes this.
