Big stink over Redksins, they why are Edmonton Eskimos OK?

I know Canadians are touchy about terms also. 1st peoples, Natives or whatever. But never heard anybody bitching about this.

Has anybody heard anything?

Because none of the people up there are eligible to vote down here.

so Native Americans are a big voting bloc? That can't be it. Why no furor here or in Canada.

wrong is wrong

aren't the Eskimos community owned kind of like the Green Bay Packers?

and of course we have one Daniel Snyder owning the Redskins... i'd like to think a more likable owner would not face such controversy brought on by everyone else

Does the word Eskimo have negative connotations behind it?

Also, no one cares abut hockey

Is "Eskimos" offensive?

Hockey? You showed your hand there. Pathetic

I thought Eskimos was on the Do not use list

Because Redskins is a racial slur and Eskimos is not.

I am offended by the term Native American

I demand people stop using it

Go ask them.

I'm asking you, since you claimed it was a racial slur. Its a fact there are all (or practically all) native american schools that use Redskins as its moniker. I don't see that happening with any other racial slur, and certainly they (the native american school) have the power to change the name if they saw fit.

so again, if its a racial slur, why do they use it?
