You gave a gift and then you took it back, that's called an Indian giver is it not?
Well I guess it depends on who you're talking to....maybe you're speaking to an Indian.

Why? My wife is of Indian heritage and she and her family couldn't give two hoots about the saying....

I care about what people say about us. If she or her family does not that's on them. Not all tribes are the same nor are their experiences. Myself all the little cuts on us are tiring, especially the ones people feel are just cute or acceptable.

If that's the way you feel then that's you. I cannot change that.

Thanks for the conversation.

This conversation started because of a post in the wrong area.

Moved to Pedals, DittoX2. :)

Actually you know what, the term is used fairly frequently in Australia and always in a joking sense, as it was when I responded to your post above. I always thought the term was with reference to Asia India rather than American Indians which I just googled and found to be the case, and also that it can be offensive to American Indians. This being the case please accept my apology I wasn't aware of this or I would not have posted it. I guess we learn something ever day huh. I'll check out your other post cheers.

Thank you, I appreciate it. You are a rare man indeed. Most would not have taken the effort to understand.

lol my wife is of (Asian) Indian descent and I used to get plenty of the good stuff but we had to cut back a bit the ghee factor tends to add the pounds when you go back for 3 servings 5 nights a week.
