Why post a topic if you aren't looking for other view points.
I'm simply saying this, the MAJORITY find it completely non offensive anymore.
My part of the world, we groan in agony at the growing political correctness going on in this country. It's not like we put the name Redskins on a
derogatory thing. It's the name of a football team. A team that "goes to war" each sunday. That "battles" other teams (tribes?). Yes, I'm
stretching here a bit.
What about the San Fransico 49ers. named such because of the 1849 gold rush...a bunch of dirty mangy men so desperate they go across the country for
just a chance of getting rich.
The Dallas Cowboys...not all of us here in texas are cowboys. I'm offended by that assumption.
Minnesota Vikings....depicts Norwegians in a barbaric light.
I could go on with sports teams...but the fact is this. its a name of a team. I would think a better fight would be to get natives their land back
that "whitey" took away.
