It’s another misfortune that the term is Indian giver when it should actually be American giver. The psychological concept is called projective identification. 45 used it to great effect. He wasn’t the first and he won’t be the last.
That term was used when I was a child with some regularity over the course of several decades, long, long ago.

Irrespective of historical mistreatment which I readily admit to and sympathize for, as well as routinely point to when government abuse is being excused away by any other group, none of that changes what this is about.

So yeah, if cultural identity is the foundation this is built on (which it clearly isn't), then let's get with the program and disavow all Anglo culture along with it, because you know, integrity and stuff.

Be cautious when swinging the cancel culture hammer, you may very well find it doesn't land on its intended nail.

When did profit become a four letter word?
It didn't. I think the discussion is more about what standards we have for ourselves and asking what price we are willing to pay for profit.

What is all this cancel culture stupidity? You're not a TV show. No one on this forum is a TV show. You can't be cancelled. Someone disagreeing with you and suggesting an alternate idea isn't "cancelling". They're ideas; you have one, then you have another, and maybe even another after that. They can change, they can contradict, they can evolve. Or they can stay dead still because maybe that feels safer than living in a complex world in which every inhabitant contains multitudes, even though many work furiously to deny that.

Demanding that Jeep rename a vehicle that has been in production for decades, using emotion driven reasoning, while simultaneously ignoring their own cultural appropriation is "cancel culture".

Attacking someone or something that you disagree with for personal, emotional, and/or financial gain.

I disagree with it, and I encourage all comers to reject it for the mindless drivel that it is.

No, you are not directing cancel culture at me although based on casual observation that is entirely due to lack of opportunity.
