Derogatory term for Protestants used mainly in the north of Ireland but also to some extent in the rest of Ireland. May have several origins , perhaps from the Royal Black Preceptory. A protestant fraternal organisation founded in 1797 , 2 years after the Orange Order. It's seen by many as a progression for the Orange Order although it is a seperate organisation.

May also come from the Irish Gaelic habit of appending black( in Irish dubh) to anything considered bad. Garda Dubh (Gaelic for the RIC forerunner of the RUC)

In slang terms, "black" is used as a term of endearment in the same way that people call each other "dude" or "man". It is a shorthand way of acknowledging an African-American friend, a "black man".
1. Hey whaddup, black, long time no see.

2. Yo black, hook it up with one of those, alright?

3. "Dag y'all, I never understood, black
Why the jocks get the fly girls
And me, I get the hoodrats..."
