    If you don't care then why comment on this thread? Stick to the logic that you have set for everyone and move along if truly don't care... Or admit you're full of **** and stay.

    Indians. The textbook definition has Indians as both from India and indigenous people from North, South and Central America. Why can't they be both?

    Ya no its not derogatory and your comparison is flawed. There isn't a Bureau of ****** Affairs in government. There is for Indians.

    Because Indians are from India. If you look at the country’s name you’ll see it almost has the word Indian in it. I don’t see the word Indian in the words United States of America but you’re one letter shy of the word American. Probably why they’re called Native Americans. They probably had a different name for their land before it was all colonized though.

    Just out of curiosity. Can you cite this textbook definition?

    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé

    "Opportunity for growth"? Boy.. You have a very high opinion of yourself don't you? Can't wait for us rubes to be educated on this.
    Its nice to see that you chosen to ignore your hypocrisy and have chosen to stay. How very typical of your ilk.

    Yikes, someone gets really uncomfortable when people think differently than him. Typical snowflake behaviour.

    Examples from colonizers. Nice.

    Indian, meaning ‘native of America before the arrival of Europeans,’ is objected to by many who now favor Native American. However, there are others (including many members of these ethnic groups) who see nothing wrong with the long-established terms Indian and American Indian, although the preference where possible is to refer to specific peoples, as Apache, Delaware, and so on
    So yeah, this basically is saying that it’s wrong to call them Indians but people are lax about it so meh. I guess I’m going to start calling all Americans Europeans now. European just means “white people that first took the land before the arrival of Columbus”

    See how dumb that looks?

    I mean this isn't colonizers. There are many Native American tribes that refer to themselves as Indians and are represented federally as such. How is something deemed racist when people among those groups can't come to a consensus on such? Oh wait, it is if other groups take on the cause and think they can act on said people's behalf.

    I'm not making the claim that the term "Indian" is universally offensive.

    Because that could be confusing for some and the two races really don't have anything to do with each other. Are they not each deserving of their own unique descriptive term for their race? As is, it then leads to the inevitable "are we talking red dot Indian or the ooOOooOOooOOooOOooOO (with their hand tapping their open mouth) Indian"?
