But no issues with the Vikings or Celtics.

Change all names to European warrior clans and then they can complain about the lack of inclusion.

The 49ers were racist miners abusing celestials in Old California!

Using the Rush Limbaugh environmentalist whacko method, the Miami Dolphins should beat them every time.

Glad to see the crack-pots at Slate, shoot themselves in the foot. Their decision to make their material less communicative, by refusing to use the words that actually describe their subject, will not hurt those whom the seek to disparage.

But then, doesn't this sort of thing nicely demonstrate my point that egalitarian collectivists (communist & socialist advocacy groups) are primarily compulsion, not reason, driven? (See Compassion Or Compulsion?)

LOL, I’d love to see some team use the name “Mau Mau”.

I recommend the Redskins change their name to Foreskins...

...someone said they should be renamed the ‘Red Inks’...I’m all for that...

...in other developments, I see the word ‘popcorn’ and ‘foreskin’ being used in the same thread ...remember ‘Ball Four’, when Joe Pepitone put a piece of popcorn under his foreskin, and went to the team doctor claiming a new ‘sexual’ disease...

...Bouton might have been a loony liberal, but he was a funny writer...

When I first moved to Raleigh it was a big Redskin town. That was my nickname for them as they weren't one of my favorites.

As for the name, having a team named for something is a honor. Something the team admires for bravery, strength, etc.

Any teams wanting to be known as the Vinnies, my blessing. :^)

I have a lot of trouble keeping up with the PC rules.

For example, why is it that “people of color” is politically correct but “colored people” is not (unless you are the NAACP in which case it is still ok)?

Today it’s team names. Tomorrow it’ll be something else. The people who do this complaining really hate everything about Western Civilization, and are trying to destroy it, one little thing at a time.

Hail to the Redskins!
Hail Victory!
Braves on the Warpath!
Fight for old D.C.!

Changing the name would ruin the fight song. Screw slate and the rest of them.

Will the last whining Injun please turn out the lights when you leave the room?

...I’m not sure, but I think Russell Means has assumed room temperature...

You are probably right. The crack-pot hate mongers & bullies at the Southern Poverty Law Center, regularly track patriot groups, for inclusion in their lists of "hate" organizations.

See How To Recognize The Bigot In The Argument.

This attack is part of something very serious & very, very evil. Concern for American Indian Nations is no part of the motivation.
