I have heard people call you the PJ of the poliboard. Looks like they're right.

I'm sick of the Celtic people being put through this trauma by that Boston basketball team.

I highly doubt native Americans these days are offended at all by it.


What do you have backing this up? Every interview or comment from Native Americans Groups or individuals say they are deeply offended by the Redskin name and the guy on the Indians hat. They continue that names like Chiefs are ok and while there is some division on Seminoles the actual Seminole tribe in Florida has signed off on it which is good enough for me.

I'm willing to go along with what you're saying but do you have anything supporting that or are you just talking out of your ass?

What's next, are we going to have people of nordic descent being offended by the vikings?


How about the peoples of Europe and the Mediterranean littoral that were raped and pillaged by the Viking scum bags, being offended? Honoring those savage predators is an outrage! Congress should get on this ASAP.

I realize that most on this board are too far gone to look outside their own narrow mindedness, so in a sense I don't think I'm going to convince anyone of the error of their ways, but I 100% believe everything I post.

Generalize and stereotype much?

Please let me know the "error of my ways".

Dude you tried to use "I'm not offended so it's not offensive". If you don't see how arse backwards that is then there's nothing I can do for you.

There isnt a problem with not being overly sensitive and whiny about irrelevant things.

There is a problem with faux outrage and hyper sensitivity that you display.

No, Vikings oppressed my wife's people, you've encouraged me to be outraged by such offenses. I'm just as empathetic as you now.

You really just can't see outside of yourself at all, can you?

Draconian has decided who should be offended and when. You aren't allowed to be offended by anything related to Nordic descent.

The term "Vikings" is not a slur, or at least I have never heard of any discernible group of people in this country claiming it is.

Man it's impressive how thick some of you are.

Pretty much this. Shitty name and they should be embarrassed to keep it, but the fricking legislature should stay the frick out of it.

I actually agree with Road in this one although i dont think the government should be getting involved. I have no problem with Indians or Braves any more than I have a problem with Vikings, Celtics, or Cowboys. However, Redskins is a straight up epithet, basically on par with "nig***s." I am amazed that in this age of excessive political correctness that a pro team in the nation's capital can still have such a name.

I didn't say it was a slur, I said it was offensive based upon what it represents. You got appointed by someone to determine what offends and what doesn't? I wouldn't call others thick with your lack of reading comprehension.

Wait. I thought whether or not it is a slur is in the eye of the allegedly slurred, not you? If some percentage of Native Americans view "redskins" as a slur, and hence it is forever a slur, how is CT (truthfully or otherwise) not allowed be offended at a the Vikings football team mascot? ... and therefore, the term "Vikings" stricken from recorded history?
