    There are instances where natives themselves used it to differentiate... prove it was manipulate upon them.

    I'm not saying you said that. Feel free to point out where I did. All that I have said is that is the only way to achieve what you want done based on your arguement of wanting to get rid of all positive and negative racial stereotypes.

    They did not originate the term, a pejorative. It's like the 'Alaska Eskimos'.

    Getting rid of stereotypes does not require the banning of talk about race. How ridiculous.

    You are claiming slurs are inherent to the existence and/or discussion of race. That's messed up.

    Alaskan Eskimos is a slur now? Or am I reading this wrong?

    Eskimo is a slur.

    The people did not name themselves that. The name was given to them by others (the majority power) as a degradation. Just like Redskin.

    Everything is a slur.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
