classes after he notices upon calling roll that these two enrolled students never attend his class and mumbles Do they exist or are they spooks Roth brilliantly uses the most ambiguous of words due to its several legitimate meanings compared to the one meaning racially derogatory to African Americans Wikipedia s most comprehensive definition indicates the term s many meanings a few of which fit the context of the professor s statement only one of which is the racially offensive pejorative use The primary other use which appears to fit the context unless some evidence of a racial animus could be
