A "whit" is usually
something of little importance or impact. Now when it is applied to a person, it implies someone
who does not care about the consequences of one's actions
on others. At the same time "whit" means someone
who is low class, questionable character, and does not care about whom one hurts as one goes about one's business. Calling someone
a whit is like calling someone
a cracker or a nigger, therefore, it is a strong and offensive term
. It is a verbal karate chop, so, polite
persons refrain from using the term
in that fashion. It is the "W-word!" One positive thing about it - it has nothing
to do with color or ethnicity.
