Hi everyone.

Here is the deal... Russian language has an offensive usage for Tatar word. I am not really sure if it would be an appropriate idea to mention it or may be it is my American political correctness speaks out. What is the consensus on a issues like that?

Thanks.

Offensive words are part of a language. We already have very many nasty ones. They can be included, but it must be clearly shown that they are offensive. Eclecticology 16:34:11, 2005-07-28 (UTC)

Removed definition[edit]

IP just removed this:

  1. A savage or violent person.
    • 1819, Lord Byron, Don Juan, I.184:
      And Juan, too, blasphemed an octave higher; / His blood was up: though young, he was a Tartar, / And not at all disposed to prove a martyr.

Note, it doesn't even use the word Tatar in the citation, it uses Tartar. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:55, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
