A common term referring to those of the African-American persuasion. Usually when caucasions are consuming alcohol and watching football on television, they will yell racist words at the television when a black person makes a good play, a bad play, or is sitting on the bench, is the coach, or maybe acting as a commentator. The white gentlemen will yell every racist name that they know for negroes, trying to best the one that was yelled before.
Tarbaby usually falls between 'stovepipe', 'yardape', and 'spearchucker'.
The word 'tarbaby' is guaranteed to get you in a fight with a person of negro descent if it is overheard. 'Silverback' is also a good one.
"I'm really glad that they got rid of that tarbaby Kordell Stewart."
"Ha ha ha! Your team has a tarbaby quarterback AND a tarbaby coach! Hahahahahahahaaaa. Good thing there's no swimming event in football!"
