You do realize, holmes, that I can make an argument that supports that point of view.




But Draconian said that it would be offensive in all cases. Even using "Blackskins" as an example. So if it really would be white supremacist to do so, doesn't that in principle completely invalidate Draconian's argument?

I know lots of natives. I have asked them if they find these team names offensive and have only found one, and it was a female who just enjoys being offended.

Probably more white liberals offended by this shite than natives.

Dude, if the New Orleans Whiteskins starts eminent domaining the orphans from St. Helpers Home for Widowed Moms and Their Sad Children, I'm 100% going to not only be there for moral support, I'll start cutting checks to fund your defense of those people.

So if I find something kind of close to that, can I count on you?

Quick question. Back to the OP. Wouldn't his legislation be considered a "bill of attainder", thus unconstitutional?

Damn, son, that's some deep shite at 10:40 pm. CST. But I don't think that's its real problem. To me, it's more of the fact that they're trying to divest someone of vested property rights.

I didn't come up with it myself. I saw it as a passing comment in another thread. I then looked up "bill of attainder" and it seems that congress may have over stepped their bounds with this legislation. It's immaterial though. This legislation is going nowhere.

If it were a racist term why would a football team call themselves something that is inferior? That makes no sense. Football teams name themselves after noble, fearful, strong, etc. things.


The idea of a noble savage may be appealing to the white man, but natives seem to fixate on the noun.

Teams also name themselves after savage unhuman things like bears, lions, bengals.

What do I like best about the PoliBoard? It would have to be the well reasoned analysis and civil debate of today's issues.
