George Carlin, Braindroppings on Indians

"...Now the Indians. I call them Indians because that's what they are.
They're Indians. There's nothing wrong with the word Indian. "First of all,
it's important to know that the word Indian does not derive from Columbus
mistakenly believing he had reached 'India.' India was not even called by
that name in 1492; it was known as Hindustan."More likely, the word Indian
comes from Columbus's description of the people he found here. He was an
Italian, and did not speak or write very good Spanish, so in his written
accounts he called the Indians, "Una gente in Dios." A people in God. In
God. In Dios. Indians. It's a perfectly noble and respectable word.
"As far as calling them 'Americans' is concerned, do I even have to point
out what an insult this is? ----- We steal their hemisphere, kill twenty or
so million of them, destroy five hundred separate cultures, herd the
survivors onto the worst land we can find, and now we want to name them
after ourselves? It's appalling. Haven't we done enough damage? Do we have
to further degrade them by tagging them with the repulsive name of their
conquerors? ....
"You know, you'd think it would be a fairly simple thing to come over to
this continent, commit genocide, eliminate the forests, dam up the rivers,
build our malls and massage parlors, sell our blenders and whoopee cushions,
poison ourselves with chemicals, and let it go at that. But no. We have to
compound the insult. "... I'm glad the Indians have gambling casinos now. It
makes me happy that dimwitted white people are losing their rent money to
the Indians. Maybe the Indians will get lucky and win their country back.
Probably they wouldn't want it. Look at what we did to it."
