    They show notions which would have to be further researched by widening the source pool and efforts of research.



    Yes you could.

    By asking all 6 000 000.

    Or putting trust into their representatives believing that they o their best in honestly representing their peoples concerns.
    So go ahead and ask all 6 million and let us know what they say.

    I wish. And they absolutely can't say that what they do does not cause harm or damages or negative consequences, but we have to allow them to exist.

    Clearly we need to kill off or deport all white people.

    Then if you can't, you have no idea how many Native Americans are offended by the term. If you refuse to accept the poll, then the reality is we are aware of only 5.

    Not true.

    Because I can rely on their representatives to be ernest and sincere.

    Their 5 "representatives"? And you know that these 5 people were tasked with representing all Native Americans....how exactly?

    We shouldn't need a poll to take into consideration others opinions.

    I have absolutely no skin in the game...and I will defer to those that it does offend. If someone is not offended that's fine.

    I don't use terms like "whitey", "blackie", slope, kike, beaner, or squaw because those that do use 'them' do so in disparaging ways. I don't need a poll to tell me that.

    ...and I would venture to guess those that don't have a problem with "redskin" don't have a problem throwing the occasional 'nigger' out there.
