Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

Man, beat me to posting it. Fantastic article. I love how Reilly mixes in factual information with his cynicism towards other writers. It always rubs me the wrong way when all these reporters that have no factual background knowledge about this whole controversy and start spewing about things they don't fully understand.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

Not hurt, just glad that someone from the media actually talked to the people associated with the HS's that I mentioned and said what I said about Oklahoma. I actually got my wish. Not that I hated Reilly, but was never much of a fan of his. That will be changing now, as I am anti-pc. Good to see someone actually talk to an Indian about this and not just assume they are right because of self righteousness.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

i just think it's weird that so many "analysts" and "journalists" are taking it up to talk on behalf of people that can speak for themselves.

the only really active group seems to be very very tiny and pretty extreme (they want all indian/native american related names wiped from existence).

why don't they start with the high schools that use the name first? you know, the ones that have a 68-99% native american student population and no official name complaints. why not try to get jackson's face off our currency instead.

it just seems like a phantom groundswell.

Re: Redskins "Name Change" Volume 10000000

When I was in the Outer Banks this summer I visited Roanoke Island (home of the Lost Colony & Virginia Dare ) and discovered the local high school (Manteo HS) is called the Redskins. Manteo was an indian that helped the English colonists and was the first non-Englishman to be made a Lord (he was named Lord of Roanoke by QE1) so there is some historical basis for the name.

Buffalo Bill Cody was a buffalo hunter, hence the name Buffalo Bill. He supported Indian rights and employed a lot of Indians in his Wild West Show.

Do-gooder progressive white people are the worst. They do-good not out of principle but out of guilt, ignorance, and arrogance. That's what is so ridiculous about this. These buffoons have sort of moved this issue to the point where they're starting to establish "Redskins" are ubiquitously offensive. Not that any actual group is offended by it but a tiny vocal percentage of a group is and because these people are wired to try and please all people all the time they just have to do something about it. Most of the media can't actually articulate why it is offensive or who actually is offended. They just know a few people have said it is so it must be. Not critical thought at all. For these people doing good has no end. I'll really care about this when a substantive group of Native Americans band together and present a cogent argument as to why it is offensive and has been for some period of time. Since it seems a more substantive group of them actually consider it an honorary name I doubt we'll see that any time soon.

Reilly makes good points, but he's ignoring some of the points on the other side. And it's a bit of a stretch to compare the moving people to reservations to those that support the name change.
