    This century? The last?
    What makes you think it is still a derogatory term?
    Well for me not since I saw Peter Pan as a little girl. Although it never really struck me until I watched it again a couple years ago with my daughter.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    She said that since the term, "Redskin", isn't used anymore, it is no longer derogatory. Well "Coolie" is not used anymore either. So, is it too no longer derogatory?

    This should be fun. No one uses "Kraut" anymore either. Do you think the Americans and the Krauts will be the two teams to emerge out of the FIFA Group of Death?

    What a shame Disney can never release that movie again.

    Think of how many redskins will be upset about that.

    I have never heard the term Coolie and it is not relevant to this conversation. Who is she by the way? I said that.

    Nobody is talking about what to name a team today. I would think Kraut is still used.

    I thought that post was from someone else. That is who the "she" would be.

    Coolie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That's what bothers me as well. I tried to say that to PoweRob last night but he thinks everyone is pissed at the 5 people who complained. They are irrelevant. The government overreach isn't.

    There is no gvt overreach. They simply cancelled the registration. Think of it like a personalized license plate that no longer passes muster.
