    give me a Scot?

    Dear Teachers,

    I read this from The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penny:

    "You don't like foreigners?"
    "Not particularly. Give me a Scot any day."

    What does it mean by "give me a Scot any day"?

    It means that the speaker prefers "Scots" Scottish people.
