Do you even know how Native Americans got the term "Indians" ?

It's not some random racist slur as you want to imply.

It goes back to Columbus.
During his voyage he was actually trying to reach India, but accidently ended up in North America.
He was very far off course obviously and he had no idea NA existed, so he assumed it to actually be India, thus giving the native people inhabiting the land the term "Indians".

"Chief" is also not a racist slur...
Columbus was ignorant calling them “Indians.” Ignorant people today still refer to them as such.

Oh, and not all indigenous people that the ignorant refer to as “Indians” have a “Chief.” It’s racist to assume so. By the way, the women don’t like to be referred to as “squaws” either. Just hoping to prevent that conversation altogether.

Looks like instead of preventing it, you just started that squaw conversation right there, Chief.

Exactly.
Confusing your location is not ignorance...

You are the one being ignorant LL.

You are also the one trying to start racist conversations. Nobody else was until you started this.

Ignorance is a lack of knowledge or being unaware. Columbus lacked knowledge and was unaware of where he was. He was 100% wrong, and he was ignorant.

Do you think racists are simply “mistaken”?

Confusing your location is being unaware of where you truly are. Being unaware is the dictionary definition of ignorance and to say it is not is being ignorant.

I’m not stirring up racist conversations. I’m pointing out the racist comments and condemning them. I never called indigenous people “Indians” or assume they all have a “Chief.”

I’ve also never worn blackface. I wish we all could say that.

yes, I know what ignorant means.
But imagine you were living in that time. No GPS no Internet,
You thought you were in India, and you see a bunch of brown skinned people that probably don't speak your language...
What would you assume?
And how would you feel about someone calling you racist because of that?

If I was ignorant enough to call anyone with pigment in their skin an “Indian,” then yes, that would be racist and appropriately labeled as such.

“Derp, I’ve never been here before. These people have darker skin than me. They must be ‘Indians!’ DERP!!!”

Your boy Chris Columbus was no saint. Study history.

I’m not a “boy.”

How would you like it if I referred to you by the wrong gender?

Perhaps if you were more considerate toward others, not always starting fights, and not firing off your hatred and disapproval toward just about anyone and anything, people on here might care about your misgendered feelings.

I don’t even think you’re offended. You’re just trying to stir the pot, Chief.
