Last quote by Lynne Murphy

It doesn't really seem to take off as a figurative expression that lots of people used until the turn of the 20th century. By the 1960s in America, it started to be a very unfavored phrase for obvious reasons. But Britain doesn't have the same history of racial politics that America does, and it perhaps didn't strike people as really offensive here as it did in America, so it continued to be used quite a bit.feedback
