A racially offensive epithet used towards Native Americans. However, Columbus was wrong, this racial slur was in fact meant for inhabitants of India and has now been recently claimed at the University of Washington.

Modern equivalent of "Nigga", except its used to refer to Indians who, thanks to Kumar, are finally in mainstream American culture.

Can be used in reference to other people who are "down with the brown". This EVEN includes white people, as long as they're tight with some Indians.

A very derogatory term used by southern whites against Native Americans. It is really a distortion of "Indian" of which many of these people are too dumb to pronounce, hence the word "injun". This word is to Native Americans as "Nigger" is to African-Americans. Also as "Honky" is to Whites. And also how "Chink" is to Asian people. All of this still goes on today. (Sarcastic Talk here> What a wonderful world!
That son of a bitch redneck called me a stinky injun, so I called him a "DEAD HONKY"

A racially offensive term for Natives of North America.

However, as Dr. Samir Patel affirms vis-a-vis people of East Indian descent, young North American Natives have recently reclaimed the term and use it the way our Black brethren use "Nigga."
