REDSKINS IS A DISPARAGING TERM – SO whiteskins, blackskins, brownskins, yellowskins are also disparaging terms.
Gee, now we have a range of things which can be insulting – add a color in front of the word ‘skin’ and you create a disparaging term.
What if we drop the word ‘skin’ – or treat it as implied? Is the race question on various census or other forms therefore a mandate to be self-disparaging?
It would appear that the Patent office might think so.
