spinksterinkdum Negro
 n.— «At Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala., where King took over the pulpit in 1954, his brilliant predecessor Vernon Johns had often taken his complacent congregation to task for being too conservative and snobbish. He even coined a term for such folk: “spinksterinkdum Negroes.”» —“King’s Dream” by Jabari Asim Washington Post Apr. 3, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
