    Some of you understand it, other don't so say whatever you want.
    PC non PC I don't give a ****. When someone calls me Indian its NO different then someone saying nigger, wetback spick, zip, gook or wop.
    People have the right to say whatever and I have the right to knock their ass out.

    Next Who the **** are you to get offended at what pisses me off?

    They are not the same. Indian was never meant as a derogatory term, "nigger" was/is.

    I understand how you feel as I hate the term "African American" as I am not African, and I am an American.

    Not really...

    " The primary reason that Eskimo is considered derogatory is the false perception that it means "eaters of raw meat".There are two different etymologies in scientific literature for the term Eskimo. The most well-known comes from Ives Goddard at the Smithsonian Institution , who says it means "Snowshoe netters". Quebec linguist Jose Mailhot, who speaks Innu-aimun (Montagnais) (which Mailhot and Goddard agree is the language from which the word originated), published a definitive study in 1978 stating that it means "people who speak a different language"." - [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eskimo]Eskimo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    The average person with any kind of knowledge knows the difference between the Caribbean Islands (West Indies) and the East Indies.

    "East In·dies (ndz)
    Indonesia. The term is sometimes used to refer to all of Southeast Asia. Historically, it referred chiefly to India.

    Next time try forming your own argument instead of copying and pasting somewhere else's misinformation. kthnx
    Looks like my argument is just fine and you need to study more.

    Wow Cherokee. I misjudged you. I find nothing wrong w/Indian, but I respected your right to be called what you preferred. You obviously don't respect mine.

    This is actually incorrect. People do have the right to say whatever they want so long as they don't infringe upon the rights of others. But you do not have the right to knock their ass out less your safety or life are in danger.

    I was about to try to post something intelligent about the original topic.

    I just read the last couple pages and decided it wasn't worth the effort.

    Bullcrap. Nobody says "Indian" like that. If you want the equivalent of the word "nigger" for Native Americans, it's not "Indians;" it's "Savages." Who the hell says that anymore? Nobody. I get tired of this PC bullcrap.

    And then get arrested for it.
