The things you probably did not know

the word Eskimo in some languages mean "eaters of raw meat" and that is why in our extremely tolerant society it is not so widely used now, because people living in circumpolar region find it offensive

like seeeeeriously?

it means "eaters of raw meat" in languages, that are barely spoken

in Russian (and Estonian), for example, eskimo means one specific kind of ice-cream, and somehow those people don't get mad at Russians

nevertheless, I'm sorry
