It’s hard to know what the politically correct term is a lot of the time. Should I use native? Aboriginal? Person of aboriginal descent? Indians? (They’re not from India.) And then there’s the dangerous minefield of whether you should use the same term they may use for themselves… that could have disastrous consequences. Fortunately, we all understand the universal language of sport, and can safely assume a term like redskin (as in the Washington Redskins of the NFL) would be safe and acceptable to all. So says this pale face.
