In Polish-- Indyski--first nations. Insulting.
Its insulting quality exists only in a mind of a person who find it insulting. This is madness and you happily roll along with it.
so what is your point. It refers to a culture not the colour of skin
My point is that Indian refers to native inhabitants of India! Not to the colour of their skin. By geographical mistake Americans are also Called Indians( American Indians), when by right they should be called Americans and Americans something else.
My point is that Murzyn -Moor is neutral old word, name for dark skinned people since XIV century. There is nothing wrong with it. Murzyn can be person from any country whereas African logicically comes from Africa. That is potentially more racist - saying you are African why don't you go back to your continent!
Also African-American is nonsense, If African then not American, and if American means Indians then there should be another word invented for Europeans calling themselves Americans and so on ...
My point is that some names are just that - names.Those names are neutral, tools to communicate. A fact that hammer can be used to kill doesn't mean that all hammers should be banned as potentially deathly weapon.
If you want to insult somebody you will find a way regardless of words you are using unless you are a tool yourself!
when ignorant people without respect for others and history try to make an impact there are only disrespect other people. it doesn't just the fact that such people should stick where they belong, somewhere were a simple basic skills are enough, like business or politics.
Seriously thought Political Correctness is based on Marxist ideology which spread among many Americans dick-heads in the 60s. The key here is book of Herbert Marcuse "Eros and Civilisation" easy to read and simple enough for morons to understand, never the less based on communist ideology.
