A Cleveland anchor named Kristi Capel accidentally used a racial slur on television. Here is a list of other things she should not say, including Bog Irish.

The morning after the Oscars, a local news anchor in Cleveland named Kristi Capel tried to express some sort of feeling she was having about Lady Gaga’s performance. “It’s hard to hear her voice with all the jigaboo music. I don’t know what you’d call it,” she said.

“Jigaboo,” she added firmly.

Unfortunately for Capel, who apparently thought she was making up a silly new word for having too many backup singers, “jigaboo” is actually a vicious ethnic slur for African-Americans. It has fallen somewhat out of favor in our modern times, which is probably why Capel didn’t know it, but it is still offensive. In order to assist local news anchors everywhere from making similar mistakes, here is a list of other obscure ethnic slurs (well, obscure to white people, anyway). Please do not say these on television, or at all.
