I just vote for whoever is the Democrat on the ticket.
The politically correct term is Native Americans, calling them indians is pretty offensive to the sensitive ones anyways.

Sort of unrelated, but isn't it odd in the pataphysic sense that American-Indians are ok with that label but everyone else of "color" has to be the suffix? African-American and so on.
Is it something that Asian Indians should be labeled Indian-American?
How many years ago was that mind F sorted out? And was it done in Chicago? And did it happen say a decade after WW2 ended? And why was it even thought about?
PS. Meaning of words actually does matter.
