‘Oklahoma’ Means ‘Red People’ In Choctaw You Guys

‘Oklahoma’ Means ‘Red People’ In Choctaw You Guys

The self-appointed and self-righteous scolds who infest the Democratic party and its communications arm known as “the mainstream media,” are quite hot and bothered about the name of a professional football team: The Washington Redskins.

However, they don’t seem to be too worked up about the name of one of the 57 50 states: Oklahoma.

That name literally means “red people.” We assume, with some level of confidence, that the “people” are “red” because their “skin” is also “red.”

You see how that works?

Oh, it gets better. The origin of the name Oklahoma, as you might have guessed, is not from any English word. It’s a conjunction of two Choctaw words: “okla” and “humma.” Those words translate to “red” and “people” respectively.

Yeah. It’s in Wikipedia.

The Choctaw, of course, are a Native American people originally from the southeastern part of the United States.

Now, who came up with the idea of naming one of our states “red people” using Native American words? Unsurprisingly, it was a Choctaw chief. The state was originally meant to be an all-Indian state under the governance of the United States.

An all-Indian state named “red people.” Hmmm…

We have to wonder: Where is the outrage?

University Of New Hampshire Thinks The Term ‘American’ Is Offensive

Brian AndersonJuly 28, 2015
Canoga Park Alabama gang members flash a gun and a CPA sign in the northern parking lot of Lanark Park. Police identify CPA members in part by their dress, which can include white tennis shoes, baggy pants or shorts with long socks and oversized white, blue or black T-shirts. CPA gang members also shave their heads, wear black sunglasses and carry blue bandanas. A gang injunction outlining a 4.65-square mile area of the city prohibits known gang members from associating with other members, drinking alcohol in public, intimidating witnesses and being out from 10 p.m. to sunrise, among other off-limits behavior.
