Jessica Simpson hates Injuns?

July 30th, 2009 // 89 Comments

Jessica Simpson found herself in hot water this week when a reporter asked if she’d take back the boat she bought Tony Romo to which she replied “I’m not an Indian giver.” Native American groups were obviously outraged. Us Magazine reports:

Jacqueline L. Pata, executive director of the National Congress of American Indians, tells Usmagazine.com Simpson isn’t the only person who uses the word in a derogatory sense.
The concept of Indians giving and sharing with one another is where the term originated, she explains, but has somehow morphed into an insensitive phrase that stereotypes Native people as ones who give and then take back.
“Most people flippantly use the comment ‘Indian giver’ without realizing its true meaning, Pata tells Us.

How could Jessica Simpson not realize the true meaning of the term “Indian giver”? What a stupid Polack. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m behind on some bills so I need to conjure up some Jewish lightning on my car. — Yikes. I probably shouldn’t have said that. My insurance company might be reading.

    We conquered the Indians because we were superior. Those idiots hadn’t even invented the wheel yet and we were sailing around the world kicking some huge ass. Now they lay around on the reservations and sniff hairspray.

    Let’s be honest, the Cleveland Indians mascot and the Washington Redskins very name is more racist than this.

    This could become a real tar baby for her.

    1/4 Native Southwest here, 1/4 Native Central American.

    @9 Cute. But Mexicans were also here first. Know your history.

    @15 That’s how I like to take it.

    @20 N.A.s in Northern part of American were nomadic, but in the Southwest there were many sedentary Natives (Pueblos). Equal reciprocity is a great concept, but early settlers had Eugenics and Manifest Destiny concepts in mind, and a double standard on top of that, so it’s no wonder they wrote shit like that.

    @51 Too bad “you” never bathed. Adrian G must be an offspring of a white “conqueror”.

    @52 No shit

    And finally, Jessica is dumb and nothing in this article shows “Native American groups obviously outraged”. Pata’s comment was mild. It’ll blow over, and YES, if someone or some people were “outraged” at J.S., they need to get over themselves.

    How can Mexicans also be here first? There’s only one first.

  7. angie

    i was taught the term indian giver came from the americans giving land to the natives and then saying, oh its valuable its ours again. Thats what i learned in my american indian studies classes.

  8. Suck it!

    you honkies niggas jew fucks rat european cluster fucks all shut the fuck up! native people were here first, and they’re not mexicans! whoever thought they were mexicans seriously needs to have their dick shot off! All u idiots dont know shit, just a bunch of retards with no proper education about “american history” which also includes native american history. they took good proper care of this land you unappreciative fucks took over, because of you idiots the country is screwed up! if it wasn’t for the native people you wouldn’t have a free country to live in. have some respect or sail back to your own countries!!

    Don’t you just hate people who are nigger rich? Ooops. Probably can’t say that either.

  10. Cartman

    @59

    The only way you can become nigger rich is if you steal some jew gold and sell it to a filthy towel head.

  11. therush

    What? I thought it was always ripping on white people for being douchenozzles. Like “Here’s some reservation land, but oh wait there is gold so we need it back”.

  12. Bert

    Indian Nations = the most failed civilization in history. still dragging their shit around on sticks almost 1000 years after the rest of the world had the wheel. HA HA HA what a bunch of morons!

  13. Sal

    She probably just feels bad after her dad tried to nigger Tony’s shit.

  14. Pat C.

    Bought him a boat? She may be insensitive, but at least she’s no niggard.

    Progress to some seems to be the complex actions of tearing apart Creation to see how it was assembled and then using the ruined assembly for it’s ingredients for assorted demented purpose we call technology. The fact is that our sacred Earth is dying. Make no mistake about it, the plantet is in a rapid state of decline. Our population is in a state of morbid increase far beyond the carrying capacity as evidenced by and increase in starvation. This will not have a solution other than mass death. Our glorious science has failed us.
    Once a man could stare into the pure darkness of night and count endless stars and see the workings of God. Now we read a contrived book we call the Bible which is itself a filthy lie and is partly based upon the accounts of a people for whom the Creator supposedly favors as the expense of not only the rest of humanity but all of Creation.
    The American Indians were fine stewards of this land and were, like all so-called primitive societies, in a state of harmony with the essential ecology. We europeans and jews that live here see the planet as nothing more than a place to tear apart for profit. And nothing more.

    Thanks 37! :) I totally agree with you too.

  17. Shut up and smile Jessica.

  20. Gando

    Toni Romo should return her the motorboat if he hates her that much.

  21. reba

    the term refers to WHITE PEOPLE who gave to the Native Americans and then took it all back (and more). It is derogatory towards WHITE PEOPLE! Learn your f-cking history, folks.

  22. What about smiling ?

    Yet another example of the ignorance of whtie racism in this country – in 2009 no less

  26. Dread not

    Jacqueline L. Pata, executive director of the National Congress of American Indians, tells Usmagazine.com, “the concept of Indians giving and sharing with one another is where the term originated…”

    Dn: I want Jess to Indian give me some pussy, per the REAL meaning.

  27. Ronnie

    I don’t see the point of getting into an argument with some of the morons who posted on this site. I do not pick on uneducated, inbred, banjo pickers, but instead of my ancestors helping those poor lost souls survive the first couple of winters on this continent they should have led them back to their boats and sent them on their way. As for the idiot who suggested we were too stupid to invent the wheel..what practical use was the wheel at that time. Inventions are to address a void..like the space between your ears..

  28. Does this mean they get the internet on the reservation now?

    Pale Face, get back to work making my latte. And keep your white-ass shit-caked dreds out of it.

  31. Shani

    I’m sorry, but, are there really still enough Native Americans (indians) still alive to form a group that gives a fuck about this? I mean really, I thought we killed em all.

    HAHAHA no seriously though all kidding aside, who really gives a fuck, really?
    I mean come on, actually getting offended over this shit.

    Cry me a river, build me a bridge, and get over it!!

    Indian giver isn’t racist, it doesn’t have anywhere near the weight the N word does or even other derogatory words about native americans. STFU. Its a term that describes where a native person gave something and expected something in return and if they didn’t get something, they would ask for their item back. Its not racist, its reflective of tribal trade economics. Just because they take it as derogatory doesn’t mean it has to be.

  34. Sasheen

    Wow…a lot of ignorant people here. As a TRUE Native American from the Haida tribe (not somebody claiming to have a great great Cherokee grandmother, but an actual real enrolled member) I am appalled at how readily acceptable it is to use racially derogatory terms. But somehow it’s still perfectly fine to make racist comments against Native Americans…and pretty much any minority group except African Americans. We all know that if Jessica made an insensitive remark about black people, Obama would be planning another “Beer Summit” at a White House picnic table right about now. Even some Natives are too blind to realize it’s negative impact and tolerate the perpetuation of ignorance. And who cares about the origin of the word? The etymology behind it is nebulous, but the most popular meaning is obviously a slam against Natives. You’re severely misinformed if you don’t know that. The bottom line is, it is not a nice word. So if your’e not a nice person, go ahead and use it to your heart’s content. Or go back to where you came from because I’m already where my people came from…heh heh heh…

    Tell that bitch to get back to the blackjack table.

    The phrase Indian Giver couldn’t be more true. i live in a area with a few reserves and to many bars. hehe
    And in my life long experience of being around Indians (not Natives, Indians are just Mexicans who moved north), i have noticed a few things.
    1. They’re greedy and think everything is owed to them.
    2. They all think they’re gods gift
    3. They’re hypocrites, Example : They will say things like “Indians never had a concept of war before the white man came to our land” and then say things like “our people have always been great WARriors”
    And 3. they steal my lysol :)

    These “people” should know by now that no one cares what they think. unless its about cousin lovin’, making home brew, beating wives, cheap smokes, free government money, girlie ponytails and not to die from drinking to much sterno and paint thinner. HAHA!

    Oh and by the way, my grandmother was a Indian American and my father a Indian Canadian. So i can say this stuff, CAN YOU?!

    In reply to Sarcastos ~ Not all of us are like your family, nor your knowledge of how you see Natives. Some of us were raised right, not to take things seriously, not to be judmental, your the reason why were so hated. Indians like you, drunk, dead beat indians, who wait monthly for that welfare cheque to get paid and drink. So keep it on.

  39. I was taught the term Indian giver came from Americans to give land to people and then saying, oh we back our valued it. Thats what I learned in my American Indian Studies classes.
