    Did you spend $50,000 for that?

    I'm not from India, no one in my family nor any of my of ancestors. For us its like calling Puerto Ricans, Mexicans and vise versa.
    See how well that goes over.

    Get over yourself. Nobody thinks you're from India.

    Get over myself? WTF

    Maybe its just over your head and you need it in crayon to understand.

    I'm not from India (did you follow that) hence Indian shouldn't be used to describe my race. (are you still following me I can go slower if you need)

    Let's play nice. Cherokee wasn't making this about him. He was illustrating how people can be offended by things.

    I'd say he's pretty qualified to say what he prefers to be called.

    Get over yourself. Nobody thinks you're from India. It's just easier to say "Indian" than "Native American" just like it's easier to say "black" than "African American" even though nobody's really black per se.

    The problem is, though, that he doesn't speak for all Native Americans. You mentioned earlier your grandmother was proud to call herself an "Indian." My father-in-law is part Native American, too, and takes no offense at the term "Indian."

    It's like the African-American/black thing. Some people are offended when you call them one or the other so sometimes you just can't win.

    Again with the "get over yourself"? Ok how about GFY.

    Maybe its even easier to call blacks niggers?
