Honestly thought there was a chance it was a racial slur. Sorry to come off as shallow and pedantic. TIL Thanks
This is it everyone, we've peaked. Welcome to the most pedantic discussion topic on Designer News.
I am Indian and I am not offended.
There is soil which does look similar to the color and perhaps they thought it was convenient to name it that way.
I am really not sure why you'd ask this question.
OP asked because there is nothing else to do on the internet than complain about pointless shit.
Has "offended-booking" become a trend? So many people on FB are posting articles about skewed / wrong LGBTQA+ integration, racism, feminism, gamergate (etc...) yet contribute nothing to the conversation. Just like this comment.
Oh my! Thank you for teaching me about this brilliant man! Gotta watch it all now ahah
How about spending time mulling over functional parts of the spec that need attention...
Kudos for that, I'm offended by how crazy and totally not intuitive parts of the flexbox properties are named ^
This might be the worst and most awkward question ever on DN. + it doesn't make any sense
not as offended as by "peachpuff" :)
See "Red Indian" in the Native American name controversy wikipedia article under the heading Obsolete and unacceptable terminology.
But its not called Red Indian, its called Indian Red, as in red soil in India.
how about you not flip the words around, thus generating a completely different meaning than what was originally asked by OP. -_-
The world doesn't revolve around the US you know... and we're all getting tired of all your fake political correctness. The term doesn't come from the US, it's a type of soil you learn about in 6th grade geography lessons when you study countries around the globe. Only an American would have thought that's a slur. For everyone else it's normal.
