Since I'm white, referring to me as uppity is not offensive because it's a racial slur specific to blacks. It's like calling a white a peckerwood, it's an offensive slang term used specifically on whites.
Growing up we called white people crackers, I dont know why but we did. I have not heard the term peckerwood so I dont know about that one.
I refuse to be selective on what names I call people. I dont use or like the N word, I think its disgusting and I dont like any word that talks bad about Jewish people. Other than that I am not going to carry an ethnic dictionary before I discribe someones behavior.
