Webster defines “chink” as “narrow opening”.
However in California people seem to only think about its derogatory (bigotry) meaning, and only after you press them they recall that “Oh yeah, we actually say ‘chink in the fence’ so that probably makes sense”.
Just curious, how widespread is its original meaning - is it only in the Golden State people react like that?
