Just as there are those of color who prefer black versus African-American
... I think it's a case-by-case basis. While I'm a reasonable person and I
will go with what the majority of Native Americans on the list prefer to be
called; until then I prefer to be referred to as a Native American. I
didn't come from India and I don't want any confusion.

"As witnesses not of our intentions but of our conduct, we can be
true or false, and the hypocrite's crime is that she [he] bears
false witness against herself [himself]. What makes it so
plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that
integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices
except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true,
confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the
hypocrite is really rotten to the core." Hannah Arendt
