NO IT IS NOT – don’t any of the other people know what the word even MEANS??? DON’T YOU??? HOW THE HELL CAN THAT IN ANY WAY BE A HATE COMMENT OR EVEN A COMMENT THAT IS IN ANY WAY A PUT DOWN? To be a racist, you must feel you are SUPERIOR to other races. The comment IS NOT TRUE, maybe that is what you should be arguing about. Blacks CAN run faster than at least white people can though. THAT is a fact. Facts are NOT racist people, so get over it now. OH, and someone else said blacks should be called African Americans – NOT TRUE UNLESS they were BORN in AFRICA. Blacks BORN IN AMERICA are black AMERICANS, just like MEXICANS – – why do you think so many Mexicans come to America to have their kids? SO THEY CAN CLAIM AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP. Blacks certainly can be of African descent, but they are NOT African Americans if they are born here, period.

It’s a phrase that someone might use to show their loyalty to a person. A subordinate may say to a superior, you say jump, I say how high? To show that they will not refuse any task given, and will perform the task without question or thought.
I also say it to my husband when he ᴘιsses me off with his “you never do anything” routine.
It means that you would do anything for the person you are saying this to. It is also used by a subordinate to a boss or officer. You will follow them wherever and do what they want you to do.
Hope this helps.
