You might want to add "uppity" to the list of racially insensitive words. Georgia Congressman Lynn Westmoreland is in hot water for calling Senator Barack Obama and his wife the "u" word.
Democrats are demanding the Republican apologize, according to the Associated Press. Apparently, the word is a derogatory term describing minorities seeking equal treatment.
The dictionary defines the "u" word as someone who is haughty, snobbish or has inflated self-esteem.
Congressman Westmoreland used the word while describing the pair as part of an "elitist class."
The "e" word is still permissible -- for now.
