Like your well reasoned analysis of why insurance rates are doubling due to obama care ?? Still waiting on that one.....


Huh?

I didn't argue the point as I recall. I said the end game is likely to be a national healthcare system with the option of purchasing supplemental insurance. It may not happen but it seems we are headed in that direction.

I'm not sure how my conjecture is similar to the junior high school level post that I was referring to above.

I wonder if Elizabeth Warren is offended by "Redskins"?

Is Draconian going to come back and address his position on the possible option of changing the team name to Whiteskins?

I'll start with the San Francisco 49ers. Their name should be changed to the San Francisco Claim Jumpers.



Instead of the Boston Red Socks we could call them the Boston Big Farts.

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


I think you're the first in this thread to change the noun from redskin to savage. Why is that? This racism game is so hard to follow sometimes.

In an editorial response to the [massacre at Wounded Knee], the young newspaper editor L. Frank Baum, later the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, wrote in the Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer on January 3, 1891:

"The Pioneer has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extermination of the Indians. Having wronged them for centuries, we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untamable creatures from the face of the earth. In this lies future safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those have been in the past."

Why did you post that link? Because the term redskin was used?

It's a good thing all these natives living in villages and reservations who don't care, or may actually like some of the native mascots, have these white liberals to express faux outrage for them.

Right. I can't comprehend anyone actually being upset about the nickname.

My guess is the overwhelming majority are far detached from the reservation or village. This guy blames the "white indian" and their enablers.

quote:

The obsession with protesting mascots and names like Redskins is an obsession of white Indians. They protest mascots, children dressing up on Halloween and other silly things because it makes them feel Indian. It lets them scream racism. They know no other way of feeling Indian. They are totally disconnected from the real issues that affect mainstream Indians on reservations. They are fully Americanized. They have lost their language, culture, religion and even their skin color.

Unfortunately the white Indians have the loudest voices. If we go against them, they hurt us in our careers and lives because they [white Indians] control our media, academia, government jobs, medical clinics, finances, who gets denied federal recognition, even our tribes – everything. They have the money and the power. We have the Indian-ness.

Bottom line: the term "Redskin" is an ethnic slur.

They should change it, but it should be left to the organization to do the right thing. . .not the government.
