Should the Washington Redskins change their name?
Why is this getting asked so often?
Yes, to the Useless Redskins.
No, if you don't like there name then ignore them
Yes the term Redskins is not a term that honors the people it represents.
I so outraged by the name Fighting Irish. It defames my culture. Also the local high school is the lumber jacks. They're loggers not lumber jacks boneheads. Change it. Got to change the name cowboys because it's use to be a derogatory name.
They need to be replaced with names like the Washington Wildflowers, Noter Dame pussywillows, and Boston chrysanthemums.
Hmm.. The Pussy Willows sounds very intimidating :-)
If they do everyone else should too!
So the Lions and Bears should have to change their names because they are offensive to the animals?
Exactly, but I meant everyone.. Bill should now be Henry, Greg will now be Phillip, and so on...
Redskins is a racial slur though...
I would be offended if a team was called the whiteskins as my roommate would be offended if a team was called the blackskins.
It's only a slur if you let it be.. The way it's used as a team name is a positive use, not negative...
Do you say the N word and say it's only a racial slur when you want it to be?
When Indian tribes are suing calling it a racial slur then it is a racial slur.
Well I have said the N- word a few million times... I say NO frequently...
To hell with this PC garbage.
So it's ok, in the year 2013, to use racial slurs?
Yes, the D.C. Redskins would be more appropriate.
