  Giants' Jenkins annoyed by usage: 'Rabbit doesn't travel anymore' Janoris Jenkins questioned his season-long usage after the cornerback endured an eighth straight loss Sunday with the New York Giants. "You've got to use your weapons," the veteran said following the 31-13 defeat at the hands of the Green Bay Packers, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. "I'm the only one in the league that doesn't travel (with the opponent's top receiver). I don't understand why." Jenkins, a former Pro Bowler, was part of a secondary that conceded four touchdowns to Aaron Rodgers and company in Week 13. He wasn't in coverage on either of the touchdowns scored by Davante Adams, the Packers' top wideout.

“Where I’m from we use all kind of words for slang,” Jenkins said, via ESPN.com. “If it offends anybody, I’m sorry. It’s a culture that I grew up in where I’m from — you know what I’m saying? — we use all kinds of words for all kinds of slang. If you don’t know, it’s a hood thing. Whatever. I’m not calling nobody no name or pick at nobody. It’s just something we use in the hood back at home.”

Jenkins, as of this posting, still hasn’t deleted the tweet. He apologized to coach Pat Shurmur for the distraction on Wednesday.

The first Wonder Woman 1984 trailer is here and it's totally '80s

  The first Wonder Woman 1984 trailer is here and it's totally '80s Wonder Woman 1984 trailer is here and it's totally '80sWarner Bros. unveiled the first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 on Sunday, showcasing the return of Gadot’s sword-wielding, ass-kicking Diana Prince. Gadot and returning director Patty Jenkins introduced the trailer at Comic Con Experience in Brazil, where they teased the film’s 1980s setting.

The following is a list of ethnic slurs (ethnophaulisms) that are, or have been, used as insinuations or allegations about members of a given ethnicity, or to refer to them in a derogatory (that is, critical or disrespectful), pejorative (disapproving or contemptuous), or otherwise insulting manner.

“I really didn’t seem so bad with it,” Jenkins said. “People like y’all started picking it up and making stories. So I just apologized.”

Shurmur has called the remark from Jenkins “very inappropriate and offensive.”

“I regret it,” Jenkins said Thursday. “But at the end of the day it’s my slang. So if you take it how you’re going to take it, it’s on you. I don’t mean to offend nobody. My dad always told me, ‘Speak freely and own up to what you say.’ So I always speak freely as a man and I speak how I want to speak.”

That’s a weak and flimsy excuse — one that could be used to nonchalantly justify a whole host of offensive and outdated terms that are or once were commonly used in a given culture or geography. Jenkins regrets it only because it blew up; the fact that he hasn’t deleted the tweets shows that he’s not sorry he did it, and that he won’t think twice about doing it again.

Because slang terms are often only understood by people in a certain group, using slang is, above all, a way to show that you belong. You show that you're one of the crowd by using terms that others don't understand, and you can connect with like-minded people who understand just what you mean by

Nevertheless, for a slang term to become a slang term , people must use it, at some point in time, as a way to flout standard language.[8] Additionally, slang terms may While slang outlines social space, attitudes about slang partly construct group identity and identify individuals as members of groups.
