Touche again.

Now, Kindly provide the Evidence of your claims/statements. Or say that you cannot.

Brother I'm not making any claims this is called exegesis.. I'm sorry that I made the quip about westerns it has obviously erected a wall to our discourse..

Do you not see that the premise that the terminology of redskins is inherently racist.. The native Americans were never a homogeneous group

I am absolutely gobsmacked that you have used the word "exegesis" in this context, discussion and scenario. Do you really know the meaning of this word?

The rest of your statements are not worth addressing until you answer the preliminary clear and simple queries put to you.

My application of the word is in the sense that we are exploring and trying to understand through critical reasoning a subject matter.

Why are you so angry.. Please explain to me what you want me to explain

Incidentally I also grabbed up ‘gorisikh’ as an email address LOL.

I realize some Punjabis (only very very few) might try to use it as a derragatory label, however most don’t but I just choose to ‘own it’ as it were anyway.

SPN proudly had a Gori Sikh as an SPN Admin and @Harkiran Kaur ji is also a Gori Sikh as a SPN Leader! And there have been many many, who have been an integral part of SPN fraternity from time to time.

Yogi Bhajan, the late founder of 3HO used to use Gori and Gora quite often especially when he was amongst the Punjabi Sikhs but always in a derogatory manner, sad to say. The references of these are not worth discussing.

On the subject of Black as Negro in English as a derogatory word is quite cultural.

In Portuguese and also in Spanish (Simranjit ji, please correct me if I am wrong), to say Negro is the right way, not Preto-Black. The latter is considered derogatory.

In fact, the word Negro is used as a term of endearment in the Brasilian culture. Different words like Nego- masculine, Nega-Feminine, Neginha- a petite feminine, Negão- a large masculine are commonly used towards people of any colour in a loving manner.

Shabad Vichaar by SPN'ers

This is one of my favourite shabads. Very simple but truly packs a punch with its message. Unfortunately it is not widely known. As previously English literal meanings first, Rawel Singh's...
