The kids greet him with high fives and confidential asides - part pop star, part older brother.
----from Why the word 'redskin' is so important, BBC


Hi, could you help explain what confidential asides means? My guess is that it's some words the narrator did not know, words only used among a certain group of people, who share the same language or culture.

Thanks.

    "asides" are words spoken in a play which the audience are intended to hear, but not the other actors. I would imagine these are words intended only for the listener and not addressed to everyone present.
