    I have no problem with the Redskin name since it honors Native Americans and I hope my team does not draft that guy since he has made his sexual preference a big deal.
    And I’m not a bigot.

    Perhaps not, but you’re ignorant if you think if many Native Americans consider the Redskin name to be an honor.

    A fuss would have been made out of Michael Sam’s sexual preference the first time he was out in public with his significant other. His publicly coming out just gets it out of the way.

    To some it’s bigotry, to others immorality. The best you’re going to get out of those that you consider bigots is tolerance.

    Native Americans soooo love the way they are “honored” by team supporters.
    - The tomahawk chop
    - Whoop, whoop, whoop chants
    - The heya, heya, heya, heya drumbeat & chant.
    - Ceremonial headdresses
    - Mock war dance
    - Fanning an open hand over the mouth.
    .
    Finally, redskin isn’t a tribe name it’s a slur — like squaw or any other race associated with a skin color.
    .
    Think if your family heritage was “honored” similarly.

    I don’t understand how you PC cops conclude that Redskins is a slur. Don’t know if it is still the case but years ago I drove thru Tuba City AZ on (I believe) the north end of the Navajo reservation.

    As we drove by the high school I noticed that their mascot was the same Redskin emblem as the Washington Redskins. Seems like they didn’t think it was dishonoring at a school which is comprised mostly of native americans.

    I just checked their internet site and they now call themselves the warriors with a very fierce face-painted warrior as their emblem. Still a tribute to the bold warriors of their culture.

    I read that a survy was done and that the vast majority of native americans (is it okay to say indians??) were not offended. Come on, where is all this going people?

    A garbage man is a garbage man not a sanitation engineer. A waitress is a waitress not a server. A congressman is a ….well better stop there.

    I know of no Redskin fan (and I have been one for decades) that has ever even slightly intimated that the Redskin name was a slur, but rather that it is a very proud and enduring symbol that honors the ferocity and nobleness of the native americans warriors of yester-year.

    Go find something else to belly ache about, go hug a tree or something. I would welcome a true native american weighing in with their opinion, but for the rest of you, shut up already.

    Hey olfart, for a sensitive as you pretend to be, nice job dropping the N word. It is a word I refuse to cross my lips. it rightly is offensive and shouldn’t be spoken or written out of respect. but I guess when you are a self-righteous PC cop you can rationalize and justify whatever you want to, right…..?

    I’m sure they think chemicals used to wash coal are good for you.

    Bigotry mostly exists in the mind of LWNJ’s,but saying it apply’s to anyone who doesn’t agree with them plays well with the easily fooled.

    Ow ow ow, that hurts my brain.
    Bigotry is in our imaginations and does not exist in the real world except in liberal minds?

    Rapidly closing in on a third poster to get on the ignore list. His is slightly more than a different opinion, his is madness in his denial.

    Back in the 60s, people were called bigots if they hated minorities. Now they’re called bigots if they don’t agree with the liberal agenda.
    .
    What are you libs going to do when you’ve run out of poor, downtrodden minorities to defend and pretend to care about?

    Does their mascot stumble out on the field with a bottle in his hand, swinging blindly?
