The thing I find the most interesting about that P.R. letter, is in the body of the letter they refer to Native-American people as "Native-Americans". Look at the last line of that letter. "We hope you will join us; Native Americans deserve our support." NOT "We hope you will join us; redskins deserve our support."

Why would they want to pour gas on the fire? I get what your saying but if they did that they would be basically antagonizing. I don't see an issue with it.

LOL. But but but it's not an offensive word to Native-Americans. How would calling actual Native-American people "redskins" be pouring gas on the fire? What fire? I mean if it's not an offensive word to Native-Americans...excuse me...redskins, then there is no fire. Right? I'll tell you what, why don't you go to a powwow and call the Native-Americans there "redskins" and see if it's an "issue" for you then.

3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.

No it's just that you guys who "don't see an issue with it" are just trying to defend the indefensible. If the word "redskins" was really not a slur. Then Dan Snyder and the rest of you trying to defend it wouldn't have a problem using the word "redskins" to refer to not only the football team. But also towards the actual human beings who are indigenous to this land. Maybe that was an alright word in the 1930s, but it's 2014 now and I would hope we've progressed enough now as a people to see that the word "redskins" is just flat out wrong. And apparently somewhere in Daniel Snyder's mind he knows the word is offensive too, otherwise he'd prove that it isn't offensive by using the word himself to describe Native-Americans. He knows it's an offensive word. But he figures it's cheaper to go to a few reservations, throw some money at them to get them to shut up and hope that it all dies down. Rather than spend the money to actually do a name change.

Sure, you keep telling yourself that. No I get it. You just don't want to admit that it's hypocritical to say it's okay to call a football team that word because it's not an offensive word. But then the people saying it's not offensive won't even use that very word themselves to describe Native-Americans. Either it's okay to call Native-Americans that word in 2014 or it's not okay. There is nothing difficult to understand about it. You can't defend it, so now you're just trying to claim that it's over my head. That's what you're trying to do.

Is calling someone "black" offensive? No. But you won't read "a black man" in print. It'll always be written as "African American". There's levels to this PC bullshit.

Oh God here comes the "I'm tired of P.C." card. Tell me again which city does the NFL team called the "Blackskins" play in? Who in America goes around referring to people of African descent as "blackskins" still in 2014? Now if you want to call Native-Americans "red people" then by all means do it. But that is not the same as having a sports team with a nickname that disparagingly describes a race of people. And don't give me that bullshit about the media not using "black man". I hear and read those words everyday used in the media.

Authorities: man with knife robs Wilmington Wawa
By Associated Press,

WILMINGTON, Del. — The Delaware State Police is investigating after a man with a knife robbed a convenience store in Wilmington, leaving with a carton of cigarettes.

State police say it happened Saturday around 11 p.m. at the Wawa convenience store at 727 Philadelphia Pike. Troopers say a male suspect approached the sales counter, displayed a knife and demanded a carton of cigarettes. The employee gave the man the cigarettes and the suspect fled on foot. The employee was not injured.

State police say the suspect is described as a black male between 40 and 45 years old. He was last seen wearing a blue polo shirt, jeans and a dark baseball hat.

Wow, "black male" written in print. But I thought we "won't read "a black man" in print". I thought "it'll ALWAYS be written as "African American". I guess Washington Post didn't get the memo from the P.C. police.

The media still refers to black people as black people. But you are damn sure not about to see some NFL team running around calling themselves the Blackskins.

I'm sorry I forgot that we are being graded. Allow me to rephrase that, professor. A proper noun will never be described as "black" but always as "African American".

So we're moving on from the term "redskins" completely now?



I'm with Mr_Jet on this. If you won't give an expansion team a name that currently exists in market, that name should not exist at all.

The only Native Americans that sem to have an issue with the name are the pussies in the Oneida nation in NY. They're so screwed up, the tribe actually split with more than half moving to Wisonsin. I'm part Native American and I have no problem with the name.

Why is it that only the 'Skins are being bothered? What's next? Norweigans wanting Minnesota to change their name form Vikings? What about the Blackhawks & Braves? Should we get on the case of anything that offends anyone? Again.......my point is proven that the world is filled with a bunch of politically correct little bitches. The government can kiss my ass with what they think. There's not a Native American in the group of 50 crying like the little pussies they are.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

The guy who advocates shooting the babies of undocumented workers in the head also supports the "redskins" nickname. What a surprise. I would explain to you the difference between calling teams the "Redskins" and the "Vikings", but this is you we're talking about here and as we all know facts and thinking logically aren't important to you. You're more concerned about spewing inflammatory rhetoric and filling your posts with misspelled expletives. But the fact that even you refer to them as Native-Americans does say a lot. That just proves even more that the nickname "redskins" needs to be eliminated. I mean when our own resident Cliven Bundy doesn't even call Native-Americans that word, that shows that it's past time for the name to be changed.

I will say that there is more than just one tribe calling for a name change. The National Congress of American Indians (made of hundreds of tribes across the nation) has called for the name to be changed. So it's not just the Oneida tribe. But if we're using being "part" Native-American for whether or not we should be offended, well I'm part Native-American too somewhere and I am offended. So what now?

It still amazes me how when some member of a minority group talks about race and racism we are told (usually by white, protestant, conservatives) that we need to stop talking about skin color. Stop playing "the race card". Because talking about skin color only divides us. We're supposed to be a "melting pot" in the U.S. But when it comes to the Washington NFL team. Oh well we can't change the name because that's 70 years of football tradition. Or it would cost a billionaire a few million dollars to change it, so it has to stay. So we shouldn't talk about skin color or acknowledge it when racial issues arise. But it's okay to acknowledge skin color when naming football teams. Got it.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.
