For all of us who are married, were married, wish you were married, or wish you weren't married, this is something to smile about the next time you open a bottle of wine:

Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.

With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.

"What's in the bag?" asked the old woman.

Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband."

The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said,

"Good trade."

Your assumption that a woman of native American heritage would not have her own ride, that she has to live off Sally, who is of course portrayed as the successful white business woman. </font color>

With a silent nod of thanks, <font color="blue"> Is she moody, a Native American trait you are insinuating here? </font color> the woman got into the car.

"What's in the bag?" asked the old woman. <font color="blue"> Only in your racist world would you make the assumption that of all the items in the vehicle the poor indian woman would, of course, only notice the bottle of alcohol in a bag. This is indeed discusting. </font color>

Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband."

The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said,

"Good trade." <font color="blue"> Does this mean she understands the english language so badly that she assumes such a rediculous senerio as a husband for a bottle of wine, as if that is common among her people? </font color>

It must be insulting when they are referred to as Native American. There must be some less demeaning term, that would be suitable. At one time anthropologists referred to the people you call Native American,as Amererands. That goes back a bit to the time Franz Boaz was doing his ground breaking work.
