Ok, but we're going to keep calling you Indians, even generations after we realize our mistake.
@Duncan5769, I’ve been told that some actually prefer to be called that, but I’ve heard arguments to the contrary, as well.
@Berntley, Well it can't be as offensive as Redskins
@Berntley, I think the current term is First Nations, but I think most see native-american as acceptable as well
@Duncan5769, Last time I checked, 57% preferred the term American Indian.
@Monad Vairocana, Nation or Natives? Seems strange to refer to a person as a nation. Either way, I’d have to probably get a direct consensus on what words to use. Otherwise, I’m probably gonna stick with Native American.
@Berntley, I prefer native American, but I think it's more that these people belong to the first nations here. I think they just wanted to drop the word American because that's a word we superimposed on them.
@Monad Vairocana, That’s understandable. It’s definitely a tricky thing to qualify, due to the history there.
@Duncan5769, this isn’t true Columbus called them Indos which means gods because of their tan complexion
@Justice Juice, somehow calling them indos sounds even worse XX
@Duncan5769, some of us call 'em Injuns... or savages.
How could Columbus think that he was in India he could’ve just looked at a map they are shaped so differently. Idiot
@The Collector, yeah all he had to do was check his phone
I wonder how the world would be if this actually happened
This would be way more accurate if Columbus was the one with the gun.
This is Sparta
@TheDoctorsTARDIS, No, this is Patrick.
Someone should do a version where the guy on the right is a pilgrim with the Free Real Estate face, and the guy in the chair is a native American.
Columbus knew he wasn't in India. The term Indian is derived from Indio which just means people of the earth, i.e. aboriginals i.e. Natives
@Strawberry Milk, No, he thought he was in the Indonesian Islands, the Indies.
@The Freaking FBI, I literally just said he knew he wasn't in India
@Strawberry Milk, He thought the Carribian was the Indies, which is where Indians comes from.
