Anyway, again, just for the record ....i am not in favor of a name change because i too think their are so many greater issues. I also think that even if the name has "racist roots", (which according to some experts it does and some it doesnt ) , that over time it has morphed into an almost racism free name. I do however respect and sympathize with any one persons concerns or feelings over the issue. I dont care how in the minority or majority that person is. I dont think it is in any way compassionate to have a "get over it" attitude twards those people. As a matter of fact I despise that take on it.

Even better, here's the video of the confrontation:

And one more:

NFL will meet with Oneida Indian who backs Redskins name

I am a descendant of American Indians, and find it a prideful thing to call Neshaminy and the Redskins my alma matter.. it's in no way racist or insulting to anyone. People like this need to find a worthy cause and stop wasting the school boards time.

The argument against the name "redskins" is still stupid. And you're still being irrational in this debate, the eli manning isn't elite debate, gun control... etc?

Not really. On Western reservations some students have to travel 30 miles over dirt roads just to get to a school, residential areas are remote and have little access to the services we rely on in our society. On a per capita basis they have much more obstacles.

We will have to agree to disagree then. I don't see how a 13 year old is capable of moving to Pheonix from the middle of the mojave.

Re: Darrell Green does not support Redskin name change

This last page of posts is what we really should be talking about when discussing the plight of the American Indian. Really need to bring some awareness to the situation. Its sad

Unless you're like some folks and think that they made a conscious decision to take the short stick and there's no plight to speak of.
