    The District of Columbia's congresswoman on Thursday introduced a bill to strip the NFL of its federal antitrust protection as long as it allows Washington's football team to use the name "Redskins," a moniker some see as racist. Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton said the National Football League and Washington's football team "should not be benefitting financially from federal antitrust exemptions while they continue to promote a disparaging moniker that has been found by legal authorities to be a racial slur." A federal judge in July upheld an earlier decision by the United States Patent and Trademark Office that the...

    FARGO, N.D., May 14 (UPI) --A North Dakota elementary school will not be allowing the young men and women in a first-grade class to perform YMCA at a talent show because a parent dubbed the planned performance "racist." Students at Bennett Elementary School in Fargo were supposed to sing the famous Village People song during a May talent show. The kids were supposed to come up dressed up like members of the '70s group - a policeman, a cowboy, a biker, a construction worker and a Native American. Parent Elaine Bolman found it offensive that her daughter or her classmates...

    Liberals want everyone to think that Indians hate America. They’ve well-trained a number of professional Indian protesters, and together with America’s subversive media and universities, there is definitely a distinct impression that American Indians have a hostile disposition toward the United States, or at the least, Indians have a permanent resentment toward the country. The Indian drum supposedly beats out an everlasting drone of discontent. It is a hard image to break. Even though it is not true that Indians hate America, it is true that liberals have succeeded in influencing many Indians through offering them positions on NGOs and...

    We've deluded ourselves into believing in the myth of the noble and peaceful primitive Nicholas Wade's Before The Dawn is one of those books full of eye-catching details. For example, did you know the Inuit have the largest brains of any modern humans? Something to do with the cold climate. Presumably, if this global warming hooey ever takes off, their brains will be shrinking with the ice caps. But the passage that really stopped me short was this: "Both Keeley and LeBlanc believe that for a variety of reasons anthropologists and their fellow archaeologists have seriously underreported the prevalence of...

    LATEST WARD CHURCHILL NEWS: PSEUDO-INJUNS GO ON WARPATH; DEMAND FAKE CASINO (Scarsdale, NY) -- Rushing to the defense of controversial University of Colorado professor and pseudo-Indian Ward Churchill, pseudo-Indians from as far afield as the Hamptons and Berkeley are joining forces to get the United States federal government to recognize their claims as an official non-existing ethnic group. Running Polo Pony, Chief of the Pseudo-Sioux Nation of Scarsdale, New York and Greater Westchester County, yesterday told reporters at a pow-wow held outside the Dakota Apartment Building on Manhattan's East Side, that the Pseudo-Sioux are prepared to engage in "virtual scalpings"...
