As some of you may know, our team began 81 years ago – in 1932 – with the name “Boston Braves.” The following year, the franchise name was changed to the “Boston Redskins.” On that inaugural Redskins team, four players and our Head Coach were Native Americans. The name was never a label. It was, and continues to be, a badge of honor.


That is BS. The original owner was a noted racist.

Nobody gets mad if you call a dolphin a dolphin. Do you call a Native American 'redskin?' Do you call an African American 'blacksin?' I don't really give a shite either way, but there would be plenty of uproar over blackskins, just sayin. Seems some get to pick and choose what's offensive. I'm from Jonesboro, AR, and Arkansas State dropped the Indians name, didn't really seem to upset anyone though, just trying to be pc.

Edit: If Native Americans are fine with it, then everyone should be too.

Imagine if there were a team named the Alabama blackskins.

I think the team mascot name is racist as frick.
But if the redskin people don't GAF.... Why should we?

I don't.

At one time, colored was a perfectly acceptable word to describe a black person.

Now, people think that is a "racist" word.

Yet the NAACP, aka the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is still around with the same name.

Why don't they change the name since colored is a "racist" word? Because the organization was started when that was not a racist term.

Same with redskins. It was never racist until recently when people decided to make it racist.

It would be racist if you all of a sudden made a team called the "black skins" because that isn't a common word in our vernacular.

I agree, it is ridiculous that people are selective on what is offensive. If Native Americans are happy with it, then who else is to say different? It's a double standard, though, in certain demographics. Being called whitey is ok, being called blackey is not, not just by black people but by sensitive white people. I don't give a shite either way, people are too damn sensitive nowadays.

Why the frick would he name his football team after a group of people he saw to be inferior to him?

The day the Redskins are forced into the change, they'll go after the Saints next saying its a religious entity that offends atheistic fans. Just bull shite.

really don't care if they keep the name or not, just don't tell me it's not racist.
The funny thing about white guilt liberals is even when presented with overwhelming evidence against their argument, the choose to accept their own figment of reality. I'm actually quite envious that they can be that blissfully ignorant.
