Racist slur. Apparently taken from Urban Dictionary: [1]. Can it meet WT:CFI? Equinox 22:19, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

[2] [3] I also found it here. Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 22:44, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Those Web sites do not meet WT:CFI. Please do read it because it's important and dictates what we allow here in entries. In particular, the ChaCha site is obviously just parroting what someone found on UrbanDictionary. Equinox 07:29, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Cited as slang for "penis." I also managed to dig up one cite seemingly using it to mean "uncivilized person" or "brute." -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 05:36, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
The penis slang is clearly used widespread. We should just keep that one. But I say we should delete the black dude sense. I think that sense is clearly not used enough. I am saying that the page Donkey Kong should be kept but not that sense. Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 05:19, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
I found more cites confirming the use of this word as an insult, but it seems to be used against anyone who is boorish, not blacks specifically. — Ungoliant (falai) 03:31, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
I think we can close this case as verified, as there are so many citations for both senses. Rædi Stædi Yæti {-skriv til mig-} 13:47, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Passed. The definition has been rectified by Cloudcuckoolander. — Ungoliant (falai) 20:15, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
