Symbolism over substance. Just another way to make people acutely aware that they are not guilty enough.

Not sure I would go so far to say Democrat women are dogs, but, I see your point.

As a group, Republican/conservative women seem to be strikingly attractive. Whereas, Democrat/liberal women tend to be, well, not so feminine appearing/attractive, whatever term we can use to describe it.

There are so many names which are offensive, not just Indian nicknames.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish, offends the Irish
Boston Celtics, offends the Celtic/Irish people
Milwaukee Brewers, offends beer companies and their workers

Green Bay Packers, offends meat packers

Pittsburgh Steelers, offends steel workers

Pittsburgh Pirates, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oakland Raiders, is giving honor to criminals and outlaws.

San Diego Padres, offensive to the Catholic church, Catholics, and priests everywhere.

Texas Rangers, offensive to the law enforcement agency of that same name.

Chicago White Sox - does this offend people of color???

New Orleans Saints - offensive to the saints of the Catholic Church.

I’m sure there are others, but you get the point. To be politically correct, we will have to cleanse society of so many established institutions and names.

Here in Pensacola we have a baseball team named Blue Wahoo, it’s a fish. I wonder who is offended.

I played the Rename the Redskins game with a friend. My idea, Washington Werewolves, was trumped by my friend’s idea, Washington Wevils (spelling intentional).

Well I’ve always called them the Washington Foreskins so they can go with that.

Or how about “The Crack Heads?”

The democrat Party should change its name too then, it also is a misnomer and a lie.

Watch out, Blackhawks fans - you’re next (starting with that Indian head on the best-looking jerseys in the NHL).

I think if you did a poll of most Native Americans you would find they either like the name or don’t care about football.

There is nothing wrong with a sports team representing(in name) native Americans, just as there is nothing wrong with a sports team representing patriots, or cowboys. Although the home of the first two stands some scrutiny. Such is the nature of sports rivalry.

Still 91% of native Americans support Indian mascots.

Why because a mascout is not a degenerating symbole, its a symole of pride. RedSkin fans don’t degerate the redskins they celebrate them

The only people being denigrated in this are the Congressional Democrats, who are self-denigrating by endlessly demonstrating their abject stupidity.

These mindless attacks on traditional names, identifications & ethnic pride, say a lot about those who engage in them. But some folk are just too stupid to even recognize that they are displaying stupidity!

What frosts me is that some refer to this amalgam of assorted idiots, loonies and communists as the ‘Democratic’ Party.
