Jessica Simpson Is No “Indian Giver”

Filed in Gather News Channel by on July 30, 2009 0 Comments

Well, Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo are apparently finished. (Guess you shouldn’t have been “hinting” every single day for that engagement ring, hon!) But when a reporter asked her if the split means she’ll take back the boat she gave Romo, Jessica replied, “I’m not an Indian giver.” Yikes. Native American groups were plenty mad.

How could Jess not understand the derogatory meaning of the term? Well, I’ve gotta admit, it’s used pretty widely — down South, at least. (Southern heritage is something the blonde and I have in common.) Another phrase people use without realizing what they’re implying — “cotton-pickin.” I think it’d serve us all well to think before we speak!
