Ethnic slur[edit]
The phrase predates the use of the word "spade" as an ethnic slur against African Americans,[2] which was not recorded until 1928; however, in contemporary U.S. society, the idiom is often avoided due to potential confusion with the slur[4] or confusion with playing card references such as "black as the ace of spades".
