It's not pandering because it's inaccurate, it's pandering because the bleeding hearts think we'll cry if we aren't called something politically correct.
We didn't have a problem being Indians. I don't have a problem saying "feather not dot" if that causes confusion or American Indian if levity is inappropriate. I find none of them offensive in any way.
Just to clarify, Redskin is only a racist term to overly sensitive douchebags who are looking for a reason to be offended.
The one that most offends me as an Indian is Native American. Everyone born here is a Native American, so it's both inaccurate and pandering. We don't need pandered to. We're not whiny little pussies like some ethnicities.
