You're native American, but are you Native American?

Both? You may be African American, but are you African American?

who I REALLY am.

Maybe to you. But ask some Native Americans and African Americans what they think of one of the "others" appropriating their name.

BTW, is "Washington Redskins" really racist?

Depends on which Native Americans you ask.

The better question is, how many were angered by the name until they heard they were supposed to be?
