And your ignorance to the irony of your whining "Waaaah Eskimos is our name! You can't take it away," is especially telling. It doesn't belong to you. It just feels like it does because you grew up playing "Cowboys & Indians" and hearing about all these tax breaks and free cigarettes indigenous people supposedly get.
Stop acting like colonialism has come and gone. Stop acting like this is a non issue and we need to focus on alcoholism, etc. You need to understand that dehumanization is not separate from oppression. It perpetuates it. You want "them" to move on from this? You're the ones holding "them" back.
Bob Rae claims Indians & Eskimos are "offended" by the terms Indian & Eskimo. In reality it's just HIM who hates them. https://t.co/sKS7nsw4rL— Richard Lauder (@Kauwhaka) October 13, 2016

@CBCMorningShow @jessewente @cbchh @CBCNews I doubt anything would be said if the Indians changed there names to white men.— Kelly Alexander (@kalexpoof) October 12, 2016
Wouldn't happen. Don't deflect from the systemic issue and claim marginalization as your own.
@globalnewsto if i was Indian, or Eskimo, id be flattered a pro sports team wanted to use my peoples name.— MetalMackay41 (@Metalmackay41) October 12, 2016
It's not an honour or a compliment, but even if it was.... No.
