    Quite a few, having lived by a reservation or three.

    All? It's enough to be accurate in most.

    Never... and I doubt anybody really ever has in modern times. The word is antiquated.

    So the only time you hear the word redskin used in a derogatory manner is on a reservation?

    I suspect it is. And I know of the flawed poll as well.

    It's where I heard it the most. Other than that, only in pro football have I heard it. But if you think a second, add the two together, you should see the problem.

    Yup. People on the reservation should shut up.
