As a Native American, I am offended to be called "Red" anything. Would you like me to start calling Chinese yellow?

Interesting, look your own RED folk's poem

Where Will Our Children Live...

A lonesome warrior stands in fear of what the future brings,
he will never hear the beating drums or the songs his brothers sing.

Our many nations once stood tall and ranged from shore to shore
but most are gone and few remain and the buffalo roam no more.

We shared our food and our land and gave with open hearts,
We wanted peace and love and hope, but all were torn apart.

All this was taken because we did not know what the white man had in store,
They killed our people and raped our lands and the buffalo roam no more.

But those of us who still remain hold our heads up high, and the spirits of
the elders flow through us as if they never died.

Our dreams will live on forever and our nations will be reborn, our bone and
beads and feathers all will be proudly worn.

If you listen close you will hear the drums and songs upon the winds, and in
the distance you will see....the buffalo roam again.

i2vision,

You have showed our Chinese goodness and kindness to that WHITE pony due to respect his personal feeling. But he has been trampling down on our all Chinese feeling with his iron hoofs by his supporting the monk ringleader and boycotting Beiing Games with his irresponsible remarks of posts.

As a native English speaker, you clearly know what the connotation of " yellow" is here, " yellow" mean " cowardly"  in English slang. But you mean to make a play of words to insult of us all Chinese. We request you apologise!!

Interesting does not need to apologise for anything.
He did not make a racist remark against you, he simply pointed out the equivalent to him being called "red indian".
This was to indicate how the term is offensive to him, to help get it through your thick skull, which happens to have nothing to do with your ethnicity.

I show you the racist  remark from interesting:

In fact, most Americans of Chinese descent find it offensive to be called "yellow". Why? Because use of these terms reduces them to the status of dogs or horses, described by their physical characteristics rather than their personal or cultural identities.

No one make such claim,only you.



2) Do you read any history book?
3) Do you know what is Origin? How do you call yourself interm of origin?
