    although monkey was also used. I'm talking very late 50's or early 60's ( I was born in 1955). And for the life of me, I don't know how it came to be that the N word was used. it might have been from one kid. It might have been how everyone did it. All I know is that my mom as appalled (as was I when I learned what the word meant).
