Is it appropriate to refer to Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren's husband as "squaw man"???

    No, and it is not appropriate to post a bigoted political question in the Languages section.

    The English word squaw is an ethnic and sexual slur.

    No.  Why do you need to 'refer to him' as anything at all?

    That term is obviously meant as an insult and only a really ignorant, bigoted jerk would use it.
