I hate being downgraded to a "folk".

a "folk" has not rights in the United states Constitution.

Susan Jacoby wrote a piece called "Just us Folks" which explains reasons why politicians say folks instead of citizens. Or "troops" instead of people.

"Some 'folks' out there..... "

We are 99% of the "People"
