The first part of your post was directly aimed at me claiming I'm a white liberal that's offended for everyone else.I'll echo your own comment to another poster. Grats?
I don't think the argument should be whether someone SHOULD feel offended or not. The argument is if people are offended or not.I have no issue with people believing that something shouldn't or should offend someone. If you think native americans SHOULD be offended by the name, fine. If the other poster feels that htey shouldn't be offended by the name, fine. That's individual peoples opinions of what they FEEL people should think or feel. I don't rightly care about that.
I personally am not overly offended by the name because in general I'm not easily offended....but! to use your own earlier argument. I'm pretty sure it rubs a lot of minority groups in a bad way when a white person tells them what they should or should not be offended by.
That's how virtually everything works. A couple million NRA members have dominated the discussion on gun control for decades for example.My issue is with those who would suggest or think to speak about what large groups of people DO feel with no evidence outside of anecdotal self experience or pointing to extremely small groups of the whole that just happen to be very loud.
