Twas a joke, not meant to offend. Jokes about race, religion, sexual preference, disabilities are the funniest jokes in the world, and people that take em seriously are too..........um, serious? I can't grow any facial hair from the fact that somewhere up in the vast branches of my family tree, I have blackfoot indian lines. Kinda neat, but getting offended by the term "Red skins" is a little ridiculous and touchy, at least imo.

I'm a lifelong Redskins fan and can't even fathom a name change. But I have a hard time coming up with a credible argument for why the name isn't extremely offensive/racist (more so than other Native American-related names that do not focus on skin color). This is probably a topic to just leave alone.

Agreed. Washington Tecumseh's like the lawn mower motors Indian chief.

If they are smart, they should start McIlroy and see what he can show.

Don't think the legacy of discrimination in this country against white people is really comparable to that against other minorities.

Re: Around the NFL...Week 5 Style

This is what happens when society places so much emphasis on being politically correct, or nice to people. Peoples skin, whatever the frikkin color, get paper thin (sorry trees), and they look for anything to complain and moan about, and be a victim about. Its everywhere in society, and the NFL is no different. This teams name will be an issue moving forward for how ever many years it is in existence, and I can see a time coming where it will be deemed constitutionally offensive or some crap and the owner will be forced to change the teams name in the spirit of harmony and being nice to everyone. Offending someone in todays society is a borderline criminal offense nowadays. Pathetic.

I'd wager that minorities in this country have it better than 99% of whites, asians, blacks or whatever race in every other country on the planet. Its libtards like most everyone in New York that make everything an issue. People are getting too fat, so lets limit their freedoms by making it a crime to sell any coke over 16 ounces. Big government always knows best...........LOL!!!

No, I wouldn't. My point is the analogy doesn't work.

the government's discrimination, i'd have to agree with you. general population's discrimination, who knows.

i'm going to drop this, not the thread or forum. i'm sorry for posing the question here.
