: 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.
