    Well, I can't think of a social situation where I would call someone white, black, etc, but I just wrote 99% in case I wasn't thinking of something. But yeah, I essentially meant I'm not going to refer to someone by their race.

    I thought it might be that but wasn't sure because you never know, right?

    Perhaps you should make an attempt to understand social perspectives.

    From a social perspective, to include the maximum achievement of potential from each teammate, the mere existence of even positive racial stereotypes is a burden. To advocate stereotypes be they positive, negative or racist, is harming ourselves.

    I disagree... it is harming those that feel that stereotypes are worth caring about and those people only. Society moves along just fine regardless of their thoughts.

    It supports injustice, which will always exist within society but should nonetheless be minimized.

    It would never occur to me to refer to anyone as a "redskin". That's the reason this is a controversy. It's a word that once referred to people, but that doesn't have that connotation anymore. Nowadays when people think of "redskin", they think of a sports team. This is an example of political activists dusting off the history books in a search for things to be offended by.

    No, I think my question is fine.

    Your very question PRESUMES that it perpetuates a racial stereotype. Forgive me if I don't feel like answering a blowhard style question from someone who talks out of one side of his mouth about not telling people what they should be offended by, and then attempts to convince people to ask biased and slanted questions.
    If you don't feel it is a racial stereotype to refer to people as red-skin or yellow-skin, I'm not going to take any effort to convince you. I've stated why I find it offensive.

    Really, I get that sense a lot from your posts.
    If you have a problem with my posts, feel free to respond to them and I'll address you head-on. Otherwise I don't care what you think of my posts in general.

    1. It is offensive to SOME Native Americans now, which I've never suggested otherwise.
    Then we're done, aren't we? If you want to offend a minority, even a segment of a minority, that's on you.

    Would you call a Native American "redskin" to their face?


    It would seem rude and intemperate... two things I try to avoid.
