    I'm no fan of "Ms." for a woman, "Sic or Sick" meaning anything but Gross or Ill, "Woke" meaning Politically Correct & Converted by a
    Liberal or for that matter all the new politically correct words people are Dreaming up, to replace the english language because they hate America so much.
    Like said above I Don't think words by themselves can hurt. Yes using them in sentence to attack
    someone may, But imo Injun is a Fun way to say indian head Penny in less Space .
    I've used it myself & Make no apologies. the Penny didn't report it and it's not one of the 7 Deadly Words that are guaranteed
    to meke litte old ladies ears to bleed , Face to Melt

    & send you straight to Hell with a Devil and Pitchfork in your face to be spanked by him for being bad by big daddy Satan

    So If I see it, One thing I Can promise, No reaction.
    I probably won't even Notice I saw it.

    Beats tying out Native American Head Penny. Especially when it's really an Injun


    F.Y.I. it's a 30 Day ban for making someones Face Melt Off

    If those names seem familiar it may be from 1973, the second Wounded Knee.



    I remember Russell answering the question as to which is correct,.......

    "American Indian" or "Native American"

    As to the question posed by the OP,....... Yes, it's an offensive term.

    But much can be said for the "intent" when using the term.

    imo everyone is an "American", "Visitor from another Country" or "illegal Alien"

    I Personally Don't Pigeon hole people by their Ancestors ,
    Unless there is a Personal Brag or Complaint Fest going on.

    Seriously What does it Matter where our ancestors came from ?

    again I Have no problem with Injun. and If an Indian were to scalp me in another Life.
    I Don't think the Lighthearted, Injun would have applied,

    I would have Used more Colorful Description I'm Sure

    Political Correctness= to one's not having the mentality to think for themselves, therefore doing as others say or suggest, such as:: "If you don't vote for Barack Obama, you are a Racist". Remember that one? I'm proud to say that I don't have the first politically correct bone in my body. No sireee, No way, No how.

    I've often pondered about this very same issue, and what I've come down to is this:

    Being an American has little to do with race, color, creed or even what
    country you were born in.

    Being an American is much more of a "common spirit" among the
    people. An American believes and respects that a person has a God
    given right to determine the course of their own lives, and in the manner of
    their own choosing. An American believes that Liberty (individual liberty)
    and Freedom are worth fighting for, and when America is threatened,
    the American people come together..regardless of race, creed or color.

    Being an American is about what's in your heart.

    were our countrymen." ~~ Samuel Adams, 1776

    Just the thought of what their face would look like causes you emotional
    pain, doesn't it, not to mention the mental and emotional pain you would
    feel as a result of saying it.

    Do you still think that words can't cause mental and emotional pain?

    I'm honestly not trying to be insulting...just making a point.

    For over a hundred years, Miami University teams were called the Miami Redskins; that is, until the Politically Correct bunch of wimps got their 'panties in a wad' and insisted the name be changed. The school gave in and now the Redskins have the wimpish name, the Redhawks. The name 'Miami' paid tribute to the original inhabitants of the region, the Miami tribe of American Indians in the Ohio River valley area.

    One of my favorite lines in the movie the Outlaw Josey Wales was when Josey was meeting with Chief 10 Bears and the Chief says to Josey Wales: " These things you say we will have......We already have. " I don't know how factual this statement was in the movie, but this statement was indeed a fact. What more could be given to the Native Americans that they already had or owned?

    proper PC term ---Native American or first people (those who came over the land bridge and came down thru Canada into what we now call "America" and lived here before ---Colunbus and Europeans arrived in 1492)-- Indain was a term coined by Colunbus ---since he was on a voyage to find short route to India when he found "the America's"--odd named after his navigator "Amerigo" --- injun was a slang shorted term for Indain --a error of a wrong European explorer --that's been repeated over and over again ---just a historical boo boo --by a confused explorer really
