It perpetuate a distasteful stereotype of Native Americans, the fact that it made it on this show after being read and re-read while in script form and no one had the common sense to say, "This remark is derogatory to the Native people of this land and should not be said on a national TV show." Staggers the imagination that this behavior is acceptable in today's society. They (network) couldn't say something derogatory about African Americans or any other race of people and get away with it, it wouldn't have made it past the script form before someone said, "We can't say this, it is racist." So why is it any different for the Native people? Please sign this petition to show CBS we find this unacceptable.
