I have never heard the word slope used to describe anything other than an angle, signal trace or a hill. It is not an racist American term. I think someone is just being sensitive.

Even if you never heard of its being a racist term (doubtful) that doesn't mean it isn't or hasn't been used as such. Yet you say the first implies the second.

Your conflation of these two quite separate ideas indicates you have something going on the area...such as denial by any means of racism.

All I'm saying is that even though they are better at math and are automatic experts at martial arts does not give them the right to be offended by huge vehicle driving Americans who all talk like John Wayne and act like the world police.

I like Margaret Cho's complaint about being an Asian actor who cannot run up a wall.

Horribly derogatory, and hateful term describing the dimensions of ones skull with a certain dominant genetic trait, i.e. "let's go blow the slope off that slopes slope private roundforehead!"
