So... DC politicians, the Washington Post, and perhaps a certain poster here (not you, DynamiteRave) are displaying their ignorance again. Colour me "not surprised".

And then as soon as the Bullets changed their name they started sucking forever. Bring back the Bullets of yesteryear.

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

Although the name Redskins is closely associated with the tradition of NFL football in D.C., I'm disturbed by the idea that in today's society we need to preserve a highly recognizable and well-publicized team name and logo that refers to the color of a racial group's skin.

I have no idea of how many people are offended by the team name and perhaps the team logo but there must be some way to resolve this as an issue. I don't have the answer but, as an example, wouldn't a name like The Burgundy & Gold preserve team tradition without the possibility of offending anyone? The team logo could include a landmark that is synonymous with Washington, D.C., such as the Capitol Dome.

I don't understand why so many people, including Dan Snyder, are so intractable about a name change. It's not that big of a deal to me. Just do it, get over it, and move on.

Also, as famous and worthy of being honored as the Tuskeegee Airmen were, the name Red Tails would be no more representative of the Washington, D.C. area than the name Redskins.

Grosso is circulating his resolution to other council members to try to get co-sponsors. So far, he said, council members Muriel Bowser (D-Ward 4) and Kenyan McDuffie (D-Ward 5) have agreed to sign on to it.
Shocked...all Democrats again.


They're the perpetually-offended. It's how they stay employed.

Redtails is a HORRIBLE name, no matter what meaning it's supposed to have. Just imagine what perverts can do with that name.

I'm more disturbed how many people can pretend to be offended by the smallest things in today's society. No one has a backbone any more. Men have become like women and women have become activists to trample the men. Everyone wants to be "equal" and thinks the "pursuit of happiness" in the Constitution means a GUARANTEE to happiness. That's not so. We can't change every little thing that one person is offended by to try to please everyone. It will never happen. We could name the team the "Cotton Balls" or the "Cheeseburgers" and someone will scream that they're offended and can't function any more when they see that name on a t-shirt at the mall.

All of this created racism and victimhood and crying over every little thing that can even remotely be twisted into "racism" is not helping our society and race relations, it's making the divide even greater. If we'd just live our lives together and stop LOOKING for excuses to cry racism at everything, we'd be far better off.


Amen, Robert.

I love this man.

While I don't say anyone should go out and purposefully offend someone, it is a ridiculous thought to say that in a society of 300+million, we must try not to offend anyone. The name Redskins has a positive meaning for generations of people, and the level of offense within even the Native American/Indian population is questionable at best based on most surveys.

If the Redskins choose to change their name that's fine, but the notion that for the offense of an extreme minority opinion the government has the right to step in, even though there is no threat of physical harm to the minority, is a ludicrous spin on the role of government.

Solid post, especially the last line.

We're electing a Government that wants to control every little aspect of our lives, from what we eat and what we drive to...the name of our football teams?

Robert's right...that is the birth of tyranny. Before we know it, they'll have themselves entrenched into our lives so severely that it will be too late to escape. The worst part, with our uninformed or just naive votes, we did it to ourselves. The power of the Government handout is amazing.

I really hope to God the President doesn't get involved in this issue. We can all guess where he'll side in a racial debate...with the small minority of complainers.

Griffin is so awesome.

Redskins Star QB RGIII Blasts ‘Tyranny of Political Correctness’ — The Left Freaks Out | TheBlaze.com


Quote:
Several of the criticisms hurled at Griffin seemingly accuse the QB of not knowing the definition of “tyranny.” Because they failed to understand the meaning behind his words, Griffin later felt compelled to explain to outraged Twitter users that “tyranny” has more than one meaning. He also followed up with a fitting quote following the angry response to his tweet: “If we speak..we say it the wrong way If we do not speak we are cowards….”
Quote:
Tyranny- "a condition imposed by some outside agency or force <living under the tyranny of the clock" or political correctness....
Reminds me when Method Man corrected Bart on the use of peace as an interjection.
