I've read something similar. Nits = headlice. Grits = American type of cornmeal.

But I'm not sure how concrete the slave ships link is though?

Ah, grits as in cornmeal, makes sense. The other theory is it's a derogatory term used for black women. Either way, a bit grim.

I've nicked this from online, can't take credit but it is quite wonderful:

Gritsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Anti Slip Machinery!

No way will the council pay for that many letters!
