Well, I knew that midget and dwarf are not the preferred words of late. But I have never heard the Jew expression (I can't even remember how it goes), and I have heard that word for biracial (that I can't spell and am too lazy to check) but didn't know what it meant, or that it was rude. Only recently I learned that "gypped" was a slur on gypsies. I would hope that someone would take the time to explain to me if I offended them, because honestly, there are a few obviously offensive terms, but most people probably don't know most of them most of the time.
