Seriously, when was the last time anyone heard someone call an Indian a "Redskin" in a deragatory way? It is only used as a football team name. Every other detail of Redskin is gone.
Actually witnessed this happen when I was a junior at the U of Montana in Missoula. Guy was pissed at a Native American guy (I have no idea what they were talking about, but they'd had words), and when it escalated, the white guy said "**** you, you ****ing redskin," and all hell broke loose.
It's derogatory as ****. Folks on the Rez and who are in high density Native American areas know better.
