This is the best wikipedia entry EVER.

CLICKY – Offensive Terms Per Nationality

So hilarious.  I especially like htat wikipedia has this at the very begining

Ha ha aha ha hahahaha.  quality standards.

Here’s a taste of the offensive terms for Americans –

  • Cowboy – considered patronizing and mockery by Europeans, but many Americans are not offended: other nationalities think of Custer, Americans may think of Wyatt Earp. The implication, for those who use the word in derogatory sense, is that Americans are tough and primitively vitalistic.
  • Cracker – a name for southerners used by minorities. Originated from corn-craking, the process by which cheap liquor was made. Name actually stems from the Irish/Scots-Irish background of southerners, thus “crack-er” or “talk-er”
  • gavacho (or gabacho) – Used in Mexico. For origin, see under “Offensive terms for the French
  • Gringo – Derogatory term used mostly by Spanish speaking people. Mainly used in Mexico to simply describe something or someone who is American and does not imply a derogatory meaning. Intended to be pejorative in Spain.
  • Güero – Mexican term which refers to fair-skinned people in general, but commonly used to describe US citizens. Not necessarily derogatory, but may be employed negatively if desired.
  • Hamshankrhyming slang = Yank.
  • Hamburger – US citizen in Poland
  • Kałboj – derived from “cowboy” and the word “kał” (spoken the same way) meaning “solid byproduct of digestion” in Polish language
  • ‘murrican or Merrican – caricature of the way some Americans pronounce the word “American”.
  • Merkin – A rather more pejorative version of the above.
  • pig – A derogatory term used to stereotype Americans as obese and fat as that of a “pig”.
  • pindos (пиндос) – Russian, more offensive than “amerikos”, but mild all the same. The stress is on the last syllable. Allegedly, the use of this term to refer to Americans originated in Russia during the Kosovo War in 1999 due to “brotherhood of slavonic peoples” media campaign of that time.
  • Ricain – French slang (shortening of the usual américain)
  • Round eye burger muncher – primarily used in the video game StarCraft on Battle.net by Korean players generally followed by an Anime Style emoticon

RO-FUCKIN-FL !!  MERKIN !!!!!

LOL I think Round eye burger muncher was the worst IMO, maybe just because its coming from the asians I dunno, but its so blatant it doesnt even make a word up(Like cracker) it just calls us off.

For some reason The Hairy Beast assumed there would be more slurs than that. Perhaps this is the abridged version…?
