Don't call me chief!
Calling me chief is not a term of respect. Calling me chief is a term of you seeing what race I am and for some reason thinking you have to honor me. There are many Indians who don't look like the stereotype you have of us in your mind. How do you show honor and respect for them? And why do you think you have to honor Indians for simply being Indian?
Do you want to honor white males by calling them King?
Do you want to honor Japanese males by calling them emperor?
Do you want to honor Persian males by calling them Shah?
