Orac Improbable songs, unlikely singers (53* d) RE: BS: Improbable songs, unlikely singers 11 Sep 02

Is someone here saying that "Running Bear" is racist... I really don't understand why ... It seems that too many read too much into quite innocent songs. All this "native american" stuff is nonsense. When you visit reservations you find the people there call themselves "Indians" ... everywhere advertises "Indian jewellry" etc... When you have left you go by signs that say "you have just missed the last chance to buy genuine Indian jewellry". Anyone with a knowledge of English knows that the word "indian" nowadays means the same as "native". Hence "south American Indians" ... None of this is being racist.
