Why is it so hard to hire intelligent people for critical jobs within the public eye? Even Harvard can’t manage a college athletic department that won’t shit itself in public.

She used a common phrase that is not, in any way derogatory toward native Americans. That phrase is not offensive to anyone who lives in reality. People need to get over this shit.

At what point did that user indicate that they were a white male?

Judging from your capitalization of "white man" along with this attitude, I'd say you've got your own prejudices to deal with.

You have the right to be offended.

Demanding institutional actors take action against other people’s livelihoods based on your offense is narcissism.

Sure it’s the same. Except for the RACIST NAMES.

Many consider them so yes. Not every tribe had a chief, and many individuals and tribes consider Indian a slur.

This isn’t universal or anything, almost as though native tribes are entirely different ethnic groups spread across the entire continent.

Should probably let those 500+ tribes know they are dealing with a racist agency.

What world are you living in where you think they don't know that? Do you think they named and run the government agency that fucks them and underfunds them constantly?

Also the article states two indigineous people from B.C., so likely first nations or Metis, who do not deal with the US government and overwhelmingly do not like the term.

We have plastic in our blood but also aren't starving to death or being pillaged by neighboring tribes so there are good and bad things I guess

It’s hard when western society as a collective has degenerated into a fetid soup of outrage pussydom. If it wasn’t this, you’d be banshee’ing over something even more asinine and innocuous.

Fun fact - Harvard is filled with arrogant dipshits. On all levels. Twenty percent of students get in as legacies. The law school has an emeritus who partied on Pedo Island with Epstein and a chair who literally thinks we should be a fascist country "for our own good."

It is a moral cesspool.
