    So, as he said, it isn't a "common term".
    Thank you.

    Again the Word isn't is important.

    Present tense.

    The patent office only invalidated the patents on the logos that use the word "REDSKIN" in them. So



    is no longer copywritten, but



    is.

    Wouldn't " almost disappeared from common usage" mean that it is still present in common usage?

    No, it would mean the opposite. If it almost disappeared (and let's remember that it puts the caveat "except for use as a sports team name" right after that, would mean it isn't common at all, except when used as a sports team name. In other words, unless you're talking about a sports team, it isn't common at all.

    I am sorry you cannot understand a simple concept like the Word is no longer in use to refer to Indians.

    Of course it isn't. Which is why this thread doesn't even exist.

    Yeah, I'm not in the NSA so I don't have access to everyone's everyday conversations. Why do you care anyway? You've already declared it all nonexistent.
