Should we also change the state name of Oklahoma? The name literally means Red People. Who cares that it was a chief who suggested the name, it was in the past, right? We wouldn't want to offend anybody...



And poopoo and shit mean the same thing. One is ok to say in most cases and one is much less ok and not even allowed on broadcast tv. We are not playing the synonym game. Redskins is offensive to some Indians as would Blackskins to another group.

Change happens in every aspect of life. If you (or I) don't adapt you get left behind or end up looking ignorant.

The vast MINORITY. And that there is my point of contention . How long do we allow the minority to dictate what we are and are not allowed to say?

Oh, and are you really saying "Red People" and "Redskin" are so vastly different that one is ok and one is NOT? Come on buddy, give me a break.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Actually Babs, it was his hat that I was insulting. I had no idea his hat was a member.

where do you get your information that it's a vast minority?I work for a tribe and have a lot of contact with other tribal members and I'm pretty sure almost all of them would have a problem if I said good morning red skin.

N----- is completely different in terms of a disparaging comment and I think you know it. (Edited by mod. This board does not tolerate that word, and quite a few others, unmasked. Please consider this a warning, and take a look at the rules before you post again.)

I know several NA who would disagree with that. Robert Running Bear for one.

And I can find a majority of NA that have no problem with it.

I will abide by the rules, however I find fear of a word to be a bit disturbing. Carlin addressed this word specifically and I 100% agree.
