Jessica Simpson --

'I'm Not an Indian Giver'

7/28/2009 1:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jessica Simpson says she isn't going to take back the $100,000 boat she got ex-BF Tony Romo for his birthday -- but we're guessing the Native American community won't be too pleased with how she phrased it.

Is there internet on reservations? I think she's in the clear here. Anyways.. Its a figure of speech. If anyone says anything about this, they have no life and are just looking for a reason to be linked to Jessica Simpson in the news.

For the comment you made regarding Native Americans, maybe you should sell the boat and distribute the money through the Native American community. If you dont know how to contact tribal council. .

JESSICA TRIED TO BUY TONY WITH THE BOAT. I KNOW THEM BOTH. SHE KNEW HE WAS TRYING TO PULL AWAY AND SHE THOUGHT A BIG TICKET ITEM WOULD SHOW HOW DEVOTED SHE WAS AND BRING HIM BACK. ACTUALLY, IT HAD THE OPPOSITE EFFECT AND DROVE HIM AWAY FASTER. THAT AND HER CONSTANT NAGGING TO GET MARRIED AS WELL AS THE RIDICULOUS KEN AND BARBIE PARTY THAT HE WAS TOTALLY HUMILIATED ABOUT.TONY CAN'T BE BOUGHT AND TONY DOESN'T LIKE THE WEIGHT GAIN WHICH LOOKS LIKE MUCH MORE WITHOUT CLOTHES.

he is a jack*** and she is dumber than a rock. and whoever said she needs to stop pursing her lips like a horse was right on! how funny, she does look like a horse when she does that... too funny.
Maybe if her father would keep his face out of her relationships, they might last longer.. but I think she is too stupid and immature to actually have a relationship that does not include her daddy!

Just know that there are TWO sides to every story-- He probably has a good reason why he broke up with her the day before her bday, banned her from his house, and kept a boat she bought him for his bday. People are real quick to judge-- perhaps the true reason why he did what he did and they way he did it is A LOT more humiliating and embarrassing for HER than any bulls**t he's pulled so far.

Honestly if I were a guy and my girlfriend wanted to have a BARBIE AND KEN birthday party, I'd break up with her too. It's just cheesy and WACK-- grow up girl.

Instead of giving a boat to ROMO, she should have given the money to help families who are hurting and pay a mortgage payment. Jessica is a no talented HO.

Attention TMZ, the term "Indian Giver" was actually given to the "Whiteman".
Which referred to the way the "Whiteman" in the days of Custer, cowboys and indians, treated the Indians with all the land that they were promised and then taken (stolen) back through the lovely hands of General Custer and other lovelys provided by the Government at the time.
Hence, the term "Indian Giver" which any real Native Amerian would already know as opposed to the so-called media.
Look it up on google, don't take my word. Or better yet watch the old classic great "Little Big Man" with Dustin Hoffman".
A fictional story but yet based on real history. But you knew that didn't you.

Wait a minute,that's my house!    

Folks, understand the meaning of the statement.. know your history. Some slick government thugs/agents, negotiated agreements with native people...only to renege on them. THAT IS "INDIAN GIVING". A promise broken. If an Indian gave you something...it stayed in your hands, because Honor was more important than life itself...

Mr. Attitude    

I could not possibly care less about Jessica Simpson, Tony Romo or
any other celebutard. I find the difference of opinion on the term
"Indian Giver" more interesting. I've found info that goes both ways.
IMO, it seems the settlers would accept what they assumed were gifts
from the natives and would get upset when the natives took them back.
The natives , when giving the offering to the settlers, expected an
offering in return. When this did not happen, they returned to
reclaim the offering. The settlers did not understand this custom.
Instead of trying to understand it they chose to blame the natives,
hence the term "Indian Giver". I am not of Native American descent
but I do believe that they are the ONLY people who have the right to
complain how they have been treated throughout the years by the
government. Yeah, the slaves were treated horribly but after they
were freed they could have returned to their homeland if they chose
to do so. The Native Americans had their homeland taken from them.
They had no place to go to other than the parcels of land the US
didn't want. Those that chose not to comply were hunted down and
killed or imprisoned. As for getting upset over Jessica Simpson's
comment. Consider the source!

FYI: "Indian giver" is a cut to WHITE MEN, not Indians. White men "gave" to the Indians but took things back. Likewise, we made promises to them that we didn't keep. Hence being and "Indian Giver" means you are a white person who will demand the gift back. Not the other way around.

People get so hung up on trying not to be discriminatory that they don't even realize which way the discrimination actually goes.
