Illegal Immigration Protest 1 Year, 7 Months ago Karma: 168
Considering that BBC is a family forum, I would request that the strong language in this clip be excused, but this is funny!

A group of Americans, my observation is that they were mostly white guys, are protesting against illegal immigration in the US, in time comes a Native American, a Red Indian, and tells them "We did not invite you here" LOL

Yes Samix, amidst the 'salty' language is some delicious irony -- although the subject matter itself is anything but light-hearted (the near-genocide of the REAL "Native Americans").

Let me take a moment to (gladly) point out something of which you were probably unaware (on the other side of the world). The term "Red Indian" has now become totally redundant.

While there's some variation on the new labels we use for our own aboriginal populations; as far as I know even the most backward "red-necks" no longer use the term "Indian" to refer to aboriginal populations.

Consequently, the Western label "East Indian" (lol) has also become redundant/archaic, and no longer in use. For the first time since Columbus discovered America, when we refer to "Indians" here in the New World we are actually talking about people from India...

LOL! thank you Jeff for this piece of information.

Also is the term "aboriginal" considered to be synonimus with "backward" or "not civilized" I mean does it have a negetive conotation ?

Samix, I won't wade into what various minds (of different levels of enlightenment) construct as their own CONNOTATIONS of terms like "aboriginal".



However, certainly in official terms, and with more-enlightened members of our societies; "aboriginal peoples" now refers to DIFFERENT rather than inferior populations within our societies.
