At a recent rally Bangalore Government official and activist Muhammad Patel shouted to a crowd “These people are not from India! Just because Christopher Columbus made a wrong turn we have to suffer? NO way my friend! My people will not be humiliated simply because Christopher Columbus made some bad decisions.”
The controversy has gained steam in recent months, with social media campaigns and protests by Indian activists. Many have called for action, demanding that the US government take immediate steps to correct this grievous offense.
In response to the outcry, Democrat lawmakers in the United States introduced a bill to officially change the name of Native Americans to First American Peoples or FAP’s. The bill, which was signed into law by President Biden, will now require all Native American Indian tribes to change their names to FAP.
“We are proud to stand with our FAP brothers and sisters” said Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has claimed FAP ancestry in the past. “This bill is a step towards recognizing the pain and hurt that the use of the term ‘Indian’ has caused.”
The bill has received widespread support from Democrats, who see it as a way to make amends for the United States’ troubled history with Native Americans. Republicans, on the other hand, have criticized the bill as yet another example of political correctness run amok.
“This is ridiculous. We can’t even use the word ‘Indian’ anymore?” said Senator Mitch McConnell. “What’s next? Are we going to have to change the name of Indiana to Fapiana?”
Well Mitch, the town of Indian Lake, New York has already changed its name to FAP Lake, New York.
Meanwhile, FAP leaders have expressed bewilderment at the outrage from India “we have been called Indians for centuries” said one FAP leader. “It’s not like we chose this name ourselves – and besides, it’s just a name”
Despite the differing opinions, one thing is clear: the use of the term “Indian” is now officially off-limits for Native Americans – they will be called FAP’s – like it or not.
