In Reply to: I treated you white + idioms or slang posted by Junius on November 21, 2004
: I treated you white.
: I am considering these options:
: 1) treated you whith white gloves (kindness)
: 2) gave you many attentions
: 3) treated you properly, generously
: I guess is an archaism or slang but I really cannot find anything on this, so I wonder if it is an obsolete expression because it does not appear in any dictionary.
: mercibus muchibus!
"I treated you white" can be considered a racial slur.
I treated you right. I treated you with respect.
