I was told/scolded to get away from the "Colored" man as a child of the early 60's.


Very interesting story as usual.

Who scolded you and what were you doing to the "colored" man?

quote:

I was given the biggest hug by that man twenty years later.


You stayed in touch for 20 years or he was stalking you? He rembered this remarkable incident? Is hug a euphemism for something else that led to your divorce?

I tried playing devils advocate. Looks like I failed. . .

Keep the damn name! There's nothing offensive about the Washington Redskins.

I would say Screw 'em! I don't want no stinkin' Redskins as my teams name! Then watch the Libtards demand the name be kept to honor Native Americans.

I have never, never thought of it that way.


Just because YOU don't think of it that way doesn't mean it isn't

If this were a team called the "Blackskins" would that be ok? Of course not. How is this any different?

We're not taking about the Kansas City Chiefs, the Florida State Seminoles or even the Cleveland Indians. This is a racial slur and can't really be spun any other way.

The liberal faux outrage to this is entertaining.

Explain to me how it's not a slur.

And "I don't find it offensive" isn't an answer. You're not a Native American.

Actually it is an answer. I don't go out of my way looking for things to offend me.
With all the issues this country is facing, liberals want to waste tax payer money to get it forcefully changed.

This country is heading into the shitter. But at least liberal faux outrage is an entertaining shite show.

And you wonder why you've lost 5 of the last 6 popular votes.

Whatever. Some people are too sensitive. They could call them the "Whiteskins", and I wouldn't give a single frick. The pussification of America.

We did not kill them all. Instead, we did something that was never done before. We gave "Native Americans" status as a sovereign nation within the United States. They make their own laws and do everything else a sovereign nation does.

What?

What do elections have to do with this?

Are you really offended by the name Redskins?

No, but I'm not Native American.

If we were talking about Chiefs, Seminoles or even Indians, I would agree with you.

Redskins is a totally different animal.

A lot of people tune out republicans because so many on the right hold narrow minded and socially backwards views.

Let's change every team's name to reflect reality.

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

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

Redskins means what it means, a pro football team in Washington DC.

This is just overreaching BS by the gov't and totally inappropriate for the gov't to do IMO.

We have the frigging gov't basically telling a private enterprise what they should do. But I know that you're ok with that because you think redskins is racist. And you want gov't to solve that problem like a good progressive.

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