Unsmiling Indians : Denver Museum of Nature & Science [See also "Smiling Indians": ]
"In an interview with the filmmaker, Ryan Red Corn, he talks about the lingering stereotyping of Native Americans in American contemporary culture. Think about the Washington Redskins, or even the military's use of the code name "Geronimo" for Osama bin Laden. Red Corn claims that even a cursory search on Google would prove his case.<br />
<br />
This passing comment led to Culture Lab's little experiment. A Google image search for different terms of American ethnicity-African American, Asian American, White American, Hispanic, and Native American-proved Red Corn's statement with astonishing precision.<br />
The image search results showed that only after some 200 photos can you find a Native Americans represented by a single contemporary, living person. The first eight pages of images are filled with feathered traditionalists, new age fantasies, and old black and white photos of stoic (that is, unsmiling) Indians."

Sherman Alexie | Tuesday October 28 |
Alexie: "The thing is McCain is actually great for Indians, has been great for Indians in Arizona, but he's bad for the country. So, unlike all other groups of people..." Colbert: "So, you're taking back your support for McCain? You know what we call that?" Alexie: "What do we call that? Indian giving! You taught us how. We're only assimilating into your way of dealing with other people." Colbert: "Why give it to Obama? I don't understand." Alexie: "We're giving it to Obama because unlike other groups of people in this country, we Indians vote for the good of everybody and not just for the good of our little group." And it continues on until Colbert is speechless. Yes, speechless.

Los peores turistas del planeta « Clan-destinos - "Entre los peores turistas destacan los chinos, los indios y los franceses. Son considerados maleducados, quejicas, y reacios a lo local....
"Especialmente, el estudio destaca la falta de voluntad de los franceses para hablar la lengua del país, y el poco interés de los chinos por la cocina local...mejores sobresalen los japoneses ...seguidos por los alemanes, británicos y canadienses."
