When I was younger, sometimes my sister and I would get home from school a little earlier than my parents got home from work.  When my dad got home, he would always pat me on the back and say, “Thanks for holding down the fort, Drew!”  I didn’t know until just now that, while my dad was praising me for a job well-done, he was also being insensitive to Native Americans!

I feel like this is a case of “everything-is-offensive-these-days” syndrome, but State Department Chief Diversity Officer John Robinson thinks Americans need to watch their mouths a little more, according to Fox News.
