As native american on my mother side but Norwegian,Latin and everything else on my father side. I have never stopped to considered this issue. Maybe an other reason I look more latin, it doesn't matter I am Native American and it is an issue that should and does afect me and my children. For racism in any form affects us all. Germans descendants wouldn't want to be call Nazi's,(example) African American don't like the N word. Latin descendant don't like to be call names. Yet, it's ok to use "Redskin" and other just names? The worse is part is what people say "Get OVER IT" If you are called names. If you personally are called a dirty name and someone tells you to get over it. It makes the insult worse, for it only mean they have no respect for you or your people.
