    It can be used as a slur.

    But words can never inherently be bad - only the intent behind them.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Is Redskin a slur? [W:282]To anyone else who decides to post in this thread, I will advise you to tread lightly. Personal attacks, slurs and other commentary that is not civil will be dealt with.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Have you ever lived on the rez Verax ?

    I didn't think so.

    If you're on the rez and start throwing around "redskin" those "real men" will start throwing around "yellow eyes." Will you hold them to the same Marxist Political Correctness rules ?

    Exactly when did the term "redskin" become a slur ?
    When some Groucho Marxist decided that it was a slur, not American Indians.

    Marxist Culturalism aka Political Correctness is the use of culture as a sharp weapon to enforce new norms and to stigmatize those who dissent from the new dispensation; to stigmatize those who insist on values that will impede the new "PC" regime: free speech and free and objective intellectual inquiry.

    What "free and objective intellectual inquiry" is denied via PC?

    Yes it is legal.

    The thread is not about whether the term is legal. The thread is about whether it is a slur.

    I have answered. It is not intended as one. But some with a history of being the target of bigots may have a different point of view.

    Funny that you have your panties in a wad over my answer.

    That doesn't answer my question. What "free and objective intellectual inquiry" is suppressed by PC?

    Just after the mods warning I am not sure accusing me like you are is a wise thing to do... that said, I liked your post so I have ZERO idea why you would think I didn't. Check it again, I even clicked the "like" button.

    Exactly my point.

    I do not think that the name was intended as a slur. But some American Indians who have been at the receiving end of bigotry/slurs may have a vastly different point of view.

    When was the last time you sat in on an university class room ?

    What our PC universities turnout today are intellectual imbeciles.

    Some white beard scratching liberal professor tells you that "redskin" is a slur and you challenge the Groucho Marxist, guess what happens ?
