In many respects, the word Negro in the African American/Black communities is a borderline derogatory term. Yet the term is widely used today, and often when individuals within such communities seek to lambast fellow African Americans and Blacks as it concerns a plethora of subject matter. Used in a more humorous context, the word “ignant” has the same derogatory effect. This survey combines the phrases in a fun-filled manner allowing survey participants to pick one annoyance they believe warrants the “exceptional ignant Negro” expression.
