    "Clever People?"

    If he said it in a derogatory fashion, he's someone who doesn't like to be wrong... Even if he is.

    Clever:

    Pronunciation:

    \ˈkle-vər\

    Function:

    adjective

    Etymology:

    Middle English cliver, perhaps of Scandinavian origin; akin to Danish dialect kløver alert, skillful

    Date:

    circa 1595

    1 a: skillful or adroit in using the hands or body : nimble <clever fingers> b: mentally quick and resourceful <a clever young lawyer>2: marked by wit or ingenuity...

    In other words, he is referring to anyone who makes him look stupid, which, I suspect, is nearly everyone who doesn't agree with him.

    Clever people... means someone who's bright, or sharp... smart in a creative way. Anyway... what does this have to do with digging minorities or not?

    Alright, after reading everyone else's replies it's clear I'm not getting something here...

    On the surface of it, he sounds racist. But ask yourself why he said this. Could it be because the majority of people suffer short shrift because minorities seem to always get the better deal?

  • its supposed to be ironic, cause people think that the slang use of "dig" is used by minorities, so the person who said it is either funny or confused

    Perhaps this person isn't attracted to minorities or is simply a racist

    Prejudiced 'Hippie'? Not likely. In fact - rara avis.

    He doesn't like people who look different than he does.
