Misnomers such as Indian, Savage, Colored, Person of Color, Nigger, Black, and African American have been utilized for centuries by Eurasian foreigners to America (North, Central, South, and adjoining islands) in an attempt to both, make sense of, and to erase the sociocultural and psycho-historical knowledge of the American Aborigine.
Eurocentric religious beliefs, social values, and cultural practices were established and maintained by way of European missionaries through the church; prejudice peddlers propagating misinformation through the media, and educators regurgitating biased histories and pseudoscience by way of the school system.
