This is our Chief,...Deal with it!!

Look it's the Native American Al Jolson in blackface. He is not a Chief in any way if anything he is a disgrace.


I knew some couldn't deal with it.

Lovely backpedaling there. Very graceful!

 


As someone with Sioux heritage, I couldn't agree with the OP more. Definitely need to remove that offensive "Washington" portion from the team name!


Whatever. Enjoy the gloat. It's included with your meal.

OP thanks for that OP it sooo explains why I get certain responses to my OPs at times.

I am often left reading responses wondering what the hell are they talking about.....did they post in the wrong thread. Good one.

Great idea. Drop Washington from the Redskins name. It's not like their called the South Texas Illegals or the Texas Wetbacks. Next thing they will attack is the little kids leagues across America.

I hate overly PC crap. I think it hurts more than it helps. However, that doesn't change the fact that they have a point.



I for one like the name. I don't find it offensive, but I'm not Native Indian either.


I think these examples are unfortunate.

The New York Jews? Is that really a Team?

I can see that ending up in court...

Its the pussification of america. What's next? I'm a white boy and the name Chicago "white Sox" offends me. Must these p.c. people ruin everything? I live in the south and can't even fly a confederate flag to show my southern pride without being labeled a redneck racist. Whatever tho. No worries. I'm a middle-class blue collar white male trying to support a beautiful wife and two awesome kids.

That's right it is downright disgraceful they continue to use the name.

The name stands for everything bad about America.

I personally get offended ever single time I hear their name.

I almost get sick. I taste throw-up in my mouth just thinking about it.

Please change the name. I can't take it. It's beyond disrespectful.

You must drop that no good word "Washington" from your name.

Hail to the Redskins...


That was so awesome.

You rock hard core WhyamIhere.
You just do.

Being on the second page, I think it safe to say that I find it scary to have a MODERATOR who don't read the post to the end... YIKES!!!


And scary to see how many people, even most respected ones here, who don't read to the end...

What has this world come to?....

...

I wonder if one could make a second thread inside another one, thread I mean?...

Back in the early 2000s the University of Northern Colorado had an intramural basketball team called the Fighting White guys.

I thought it was hilarious. I guess it was meant to be insulting but to be honest I've been hearing what an evil POS I am for 40 years. As an employed, taxpaying, straight, white, conservative, Christian male I'm among the most hated demographics on the planet and I'm rarely allowed to forget it for more than a few minutes. Especially in the USA.

Why in the world would I care if someone named a basketball team after white people?

I do find the name Dallas Cowboys to be insulting though.

Dallas gives cowboys a bad name.

The new name should be -

The Cesspool Redskins.

You do get upset a lot. Can't be good for you.

Chief Zee has been the unofficial mascot of the Redskins for 35 years, he's well loved. His name is Zema Williams. Your crack about Al Jolson and blackface is unnecessary and insulting. That's his real skin.

Ease up a little.

Thank you. It has always been offensive to me and my family. We are not a cartoon character either.
