    (I believe there was research/polling done on this with Native Americans years ago, and they found 9 out of 10 didn't care about the use of the term)
    I believe you're wrong about that, and I also believe that it doesn't matter.

    And slavery. Lots of that went on for the last few thousand years too. In fact, like all of the others, it's still going on.

    He's not wrong about that. It's the only poll anyone is aware of which was exclusively comprised of Native Americans. 9 out of 10 did not believe the name was offensive:

    Regularly. Wouldn't you if you saw them? I mean, that's on the tip of everyone's tongues when we see a movie with Native Americans, or see one in a Casino, or see them in our retail stores in the Thanksgiving decoration displays.

    Next time we go to Mohegan Sun (which happens to be this weekend woot!) I'm going to have to stop myself from screaming "REDSKIN" when the valet doesn't bring my car soon enough.
