Me - Irish/Swedish. Wife - Malian - from Mali Africa - location of Timbuktu. 4 children and 8 grandchildren. SpearChucker - name given to me as a javelin thrower in college. At an event, I threw a very embarrassing short throw. A fellow athlete yelled "Hey spear chucker...what was that?" And the name stuck, is in my Yearbook and is a joke at reunions. Mesage to you low-data people: I have always and still live in a Detroit mixed area as was all my school years. This has "nothing" to do with racism and still is not thought in that manner with family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, former schoolmates, non-racist and tolerant people.
