As a kid, I always thought the Redskins had the coolest emblem in the NFL.

Don't like Synder, but I respect his position on this.

I don't even see how the term "Redskin" is racist. It's a descriptive term that could be used in a prideful manner.

For example... a group of Native Americans who take pride in their skin color and their heritage could call themselves the "red skins". Is the name "Black Panthers" racist against black people because it has "black" in the name? Of course not.

Just because you are talking about skin color doesn't make it racist.

Something is only racist if it is intended to be racist.


Bingo. Let's not forget that it was the Native Americans themselves who originated the term.

I really don't care if they keep the name or not, just don't tell me it's not racist.

Are you talking to the 98% of Native Americans that say it is not?

So I guess Cain Velasquez, a UFC fighter, is racist against himself with his big "Brown Pride" tattoo across his chest?

I mean, it certainly isn't possible that descriptive terms for skin color (brown, red, yellow, black, white, etc.) could be used as a source of pride.

When talking about skin color, it is ALWAYS racist. No matter what.

Dude, just admit the only people offended are ultra liberal white guilt PC junkies. You're in a small group of minorities here

poli board thread

He started sounding like Hitler about midway through. Talking about how people are stupid and absurd and about how glad he is about being on the 'right and winning side' (being a "progressive" ) and how they'll take over the world and shite. It was great. The guy is one of the most arrogant posters on the site.
