    I see the OP changed the title, seeing as they were as wrong on the date as the thin skinned are as wrong on the issue.

    Did I claim Native Americans to be an issue of mine? No, but racism is.
    So they can have more problems than Carter has pills, yet you only care about race. How shallow of you.

    So...rebel looking for a cause then? And THIS is the cause you hang your hat on? A sports nickname that some do but the majority of Indians DONT find racist, a team nickname SHARED by several majority Indian schools?

    Just out of curiosity...why do you call Indians 'Native Americans'?

    One cannot be involved in every issue. While I am not into NA issues, I am against racism. Attempting to exclude my perspective through "doesn't really care" is a rather pathetic attempt at debate.

    You really don't care, you just like to argue and attempt to insult others. You do it every thread you are in.

    That's nothing but a base attack to devalue my perspective. You're just trying to bury my statements. Why would I not care about NAs? I think that's your burden to prove and "doesn't post about it" is insufficient evidence.

    Does that mean the USA's non-Indians purchased the right to call them redskins?

    I think he's claiming there is no real (systemic) racism, as evidenced by those things being in existence. Some will only accept racism defined as racial bigotry, name calling.

    If someone finds the use of a term offensive to them, the opinions or intentions of the person who used the term are irrelevant. Their is nothing inherently racist about the word 'negro,' it was considered the most polite term fifty years ago, and at least one African-American organization still has it in their name, but in the context of today, the term can be offensive and is often intended that way. Whether the person using the term is intending to be offensive or not, and whether they are aware that the term is outdated is irrelevant. What matters is that many people hearing the term infer that it was intended to be offensive and they are likely to feel offended.
