My grandmother, born in the late 1870s, used the word “darkies” instead.

My ex-wife had a family photo of a family member in the foreground. After her mother died, we found the original of that photo, and what was really in the background were some slaves that the family had. Someone had manually edited that photo because it was the only photo of that particular family member and they didn’t want to show the family’s real background. Wow!
