    Re: Re: Whirlwind

    Letting your ignorance shine for believing sheisters[sic] or shysters has any racist connotations.
    It is derived from the german Schei├čer or "shitter"; meaning an unscrupulous person - especially pertaining to lawyers.
    The ill-informed frequently conflate "shyster" and "shylock", the latter being a reference to the villain of The Merchant of Venice and, hence, possessing antisemitic tones.
