Letter: Real bigotry
The PC police have outdone themselves with the false Redskins outrage. It is a term made by its own people.
They knew nothing of European explorers trying to find India, hence the name Indian. They called themselves Red Men or Red Skins in contrast to white men only, whom they found sickly looking.
Read a history book instead of a blog! For that matter, what guilt-saturated white person would use the term “Native” or “American” since that implies that the people were savage or had any relation at all to Amerigo Vespucci.
You see, when you go down the word-Nazi road, there is no stopping. The real bigotry is with folks who manufacture outrage to silence differing opinions.
Where were any of these folks five years ago, or 10, or 40 or 80? It is just a new inroad into the tyranny of thought presented by all totalitarian mind-sets.
