    Is that someone who only eats the back of the chicken or does it mean something else?

    Yep.

    These two definitions explain it well.






    Psalm 15

    [1] LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
    [2] He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
    [3] He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
    [4] In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
    [5] He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Truth!




    Brother Ankhur or Putney Swope,

    Do you accept the understanding provided by these sincere people concerning the term backbitter, or was it just sarcasm on your part?

    Be careful how you answer, if you so choose, because either way you answer, would be quite revealing. For example, to not know the meaning says a lot, and if it was sarcasm, this otherwise discredits all of the hard work you have done here, so far, in my opinion.
