Interesting to me how selective name calling and veiled hatred and racism is ok as long as you aren't part of the group being defamed.



Show me where I did that.

From asking whether the name "Redskins" is an offensive name for a football team and an offensive gesture, we somehow got to innocent people being executed. I don't know about you but to me, that is a stretch.

Although I do agree with Lobo. They are a bad team.

it never had anything to do with weather the name "Redskins" was an offensive name.

True. But not as much a stretch as innocent people being executed. Smile

I wonder how many people know that the term "redskins" doesn't even refer to skin color?

Care to explain what exactly you mean?

My understanding is that no one is completely clear on what "redskins" means in the context of describing Native Americans. ("Some scholars say that it was coined by early settlers in reference to the skin tone of Native Americans, while others say it referred to the color of the body paint used by certain tribes.")

In the case of the Washington Redskins, the name was possibly selected "in recognition of the then-head coach William Henry "Lone Star" Dietz, who claimed to be part Sioux" (and because some team players at the time were Native American).

If this is true, the name Redskins was used because some Native Americans were associated with the team.

And so it comes back to what Redskins meant in the context of describing Native Americans at the time, and it seems scholarly opinion is divided on that point.

BTW, the Washington Redskins episode of South Park tonight was very entertaining. It riffed off on Kickstarter, the Redskins, ISIS, NFL wife beatings, Catholic clergy. Something for everyone!

I graduated from High School where the school football team was called the Wyoming Redskins. Guess what. Our Thanksgiving day rivals were the West Wyoming Cowboys. How more politically incorrect can you get? Good thing there were not a bunch of_______ (fill in the blank) back then.
