    And this has already been shown to be nothing more than a whitewashing. Redskin has clear implications of race and little to do with "warrior".
    What race are American Indians?

    You seem to be OK with this whole deal.

    Is it OK for a government office to destroy a businesses financial future like this?

    My son would be so suspended from those schools. He is constantly making gun sounds and the like.

    It is lucky we live in the free country of Mexico.

    Again, your statement is easily proven false.
    Why are you using a definition from 1898 when things have obviously changed?

Perhaps 10% is enough to try to get it changed, I don't know. But there is a certain segment of our society that will take offensive at anything.

    Being they tried to get the Braves to change their name, that stiffens my back to this change. Then we usually find out the ones pushing for the change is some white guy with nothing better to do than to think such and such should be offended by such and such name. When they aren't, it makes no difference to that white pushing it as he then thinks they are dumb for not being offended. At least that is how it was 15 years ago when the push was put on trying to get the Braves to change their name.

    Now the patent office, it has to be another goody two shoes behind that. But you're right, this might be a younger generation thing where us, at least me, old farts can't see or tell the difference. It all seems so asinine to go after a sports team nickname and logo. Like no one has anything better to do.
    I am sure they see some compensation in the future.

    If this was a AAA baseball team or a college team that makes nomoney, they wouldn't have wasted their time.

    Right. The team never even existed at that time but if we're determined enough to look for slights somewhere I suppose we can find them. Some try to keep the past alive only in order to poison the present.

    My earlier point was that White men were discriminated against in that the Irish and Jewish White men were treated rather badly when they came to the US.

    Now because they have advanced and are for the most part successful, they no longer have a right to complain about anything.

    In this case, maybe at one time, like back in 1898, the term Redskin had a derogatory connotation, but it doesn't anymore, so why is anybody upset about the team using the Word?

There is no PC police. Just people you disagree with who you wish to make seem bigger than they are. You are not a victim.
    There is an enormous number of those so-called judgement calls in the public school system.

    There were many groups arriving at one time or another who were ridiculed but they got over it and, as you say, they advanced.

    We can only guess at their motives of the complainants now but chances are they lump everyone together as groups rather than treating people as individuals.. We all know there is no racist motivation in calling the team the Washington Redskins but the perpetually offended, usually White liberals, will still find something, somewhere, to rile about.

    We should all remember what Martin Luther King said about judging people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin, but these guys just cant get past that..
