    what a steaming pile of white privilege shit this is.

    racism is racism.

    the only variance is how much discrimination and violence the oppressed are forced to endure.

    still upset about that, eh?

    it was only a joke i made in passing.

    didn't know you'd take it so personally.

    i wonder why.....well, not really.

    i think everyone knows why prison is a touch subject for you.

    carry on. you're back on the outside.

    They're probably wishing they could ban Blacks from their shops, like they do in China.

As for Australian women,only bikini clad Victoria's Secret model eating scrimp can be employed
    Anyway, you get my point.

    Inuit. They are called Inuit. Or First Nations, you can call them First Nations people.

    And Australian is not an ethnicity.

    So don't conflate the two. As for why is Eskimo considered a derogatory word, google is your friend, but a good start would be it's a word bestowed by non-inuit people. But really, does it matter why a word is considered offensive to decide if you will use it or not? Should not the matter that it is considered offensive, be enough?

    What happened to the Eskimos?

    You don't have to tell me that!!
    I always thought they were more of a curiosity myself, but I did not want to be the first to say it.
    You don't think they had anything to do with the disappearance of the Eskimos?

    There was a report I read (after I took KW's suggestion to Google the term) that the Australian Band changed their name to Inuit Joe.

    Eskimo Joe forced to change name to 'Inuit Joe' after backlash — The Betoota Advocate


    In the meantime ...

    Indigenous might be an appropriate fit as well.

    Perhaps not universally so, and I think the origins and reasons are mixed.

    Princeton to remove Woodrow Wilson's name from policy school



    Princeton University says it is to remove the name of former US President Woodrow Wilson from a building on its campus because of his racist beliefs and policies.


    The move follows a wave of protests across the US sparked by the death of African American man George Floyd.


    Wilson was US president from 1913 to 1921 and helped to establish the League of Nations, a forerunner of the UN.

    You are mistaken, but I will forgive you because as Gorilla you have not fully involved yet.
    "In Canada and Greenland, the term Eskimo has largely been supplanted by the term Inuit.[14][45][46][49] While Inuit can be accurately applied to all of the Eskimo peoples in Canada and Greenland, that is not true in Alaska and Siberia. In Alaska the term Eskimo is commonly used, because it includes both Yupik and Iņupiat. "
    Eskimo - Wikipedia
    You of course falsely assumed that I was talking about Canadian and/or Greenlandic indigenous people where I was referring to the Alaskans who prefer to be called Eskimos or Hey you in the Makalaks . And as such I demand a formal apology by performing the following dance.

    Umm . . . no. His actions spoke louder than words. Let's also not forget that this happened last century - the century eveyone of us was born in.

    He was a particularly nasty piece of shit who actually took away rights from the black population. Actually took them away.

    All Inuit are Eskimos but not all Eskimos are Inuit.

    PH, I'm just reporting the News item.

    Because I'm not a fan of 'Walls of Text' I simply copied and pasted the first 3 lines of the BBC article.

    I didn't cherry pick to comments to show bias either way.


    Not sure? Click the link and read the article

    Semantics that is the bollixs that we are arguing over - in reality it boils down to respect for one another and names are just that names, labels used to describe or divide but its up to you how you get offended by them- its all getting pretty fuking dull unless you are American and tie yourself in knots over this shit. I fukin shit them..Mercans mainly .. in my business past they are just a fuking self serving liability and the sooner i finished having to deal with the koonts professionally the better..too many idiots and too many died.

    Probably- if they're white.

    Anyway, it's not OK to call them Eskimos, but it's OK to say their womenfolk are slappers and a cheap root.

    Just how many of your business associates have died?

    Is that of boredom or cirrhosis of the liver?
