Imagine if Paul Brown’s name was Paul White? The Cleveland Whites? Pass the popcorn.

Who reads The Slate? Who cares what they think or want?

I recommend the Redskins change their name to Foreskins.

At some point, protests will be lodged against the New England Patriots for their offensive name.

I am very offended by their insensitive use of the sacred word "slate."

Risking the wrath of many here in Dallas, I might just have to become a Redskins fans.

The team chose the name “Redskins” because it’s wimpy?

The PC Police have arrived.

Well they already got rid of the "Bullets". And what about the "Nationals", doesn't that endorse Nationalism and Jingoism? Can't have that.

Some of my ancestors were redskins (Huron), and the Washington team name is OK by me!

I like to eat redskin peanuts. I guess I’m racist.

Change the name to the Washington Thin-Skinned Panty-Wastes.

So the Redskins are targeted because they have an offensive nickname but an ordinary, acceptable image of an American Indian on their logo.

The Cleveland Indians, meanwhile, have an inoffensive nickname but are targeted because they use a silly caricature of an American Indian for their logo.

Man, this is getting tiresome. Will the last whining Injun please turn out the lights when you leave the room?

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.

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?)

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.
