    I actually have done that to a friend of mine, he called me a honkey, we laughed and moved on. In fact I have done this with numerous friends calling them n****, chi**, and tow****** respectively. Big people can get over Little Words. So Native Americans stop letting little words hurt you, and just be Bigger People.

    Is this the same as your gay friend who told you about the big secret gay agenda to destroy marriage?

    An interesting dodge.

    Yeah... tell someone that's not already a friend of yours then get back to us. You framed the context as it is not represented in this case.

    AHHH GOTCHA. You just said that CONTEXT matters, and yes I agree. So how can the context of this being an Athletic Club's name be construed as offensive? The club, its players, and its fans take pride in the name "Redskin" as it connotes the POWER, and FEROCITY, and PRIDE of the native american nation and thus is NOT being used in the CONTEXT of a racial slur. ;-) game, set, match.

    Why don't you ask the people that are offended by it? Also what's hilarious is you pretend to know intent of everyone. Amazing!

    And while you're at it, your complete dodge of what I said definitely shows how easily you forfeited said match.

    Re: Patent office cancels Redskins trademarks

    Just going to add a little levity here, and I'm saying from the start this is sarcastic and I don't actually think it should happen....But in honor of one of the greatest rivalries in sports, I'll say this:

    If the Redskins must change their name then it's only natural that the Cowboys, as well, need to change theirs as it's history is that of a derogatory slur towards black people.

    Contrary to the images created by Hollywood, black slaves were America’s first authentic cowboys. The word “cowboy,” in fact originally had nothing to do with roping cattle and hell-raising in the high plains. The word “cowboy” grew out of social customs that did not allow black males to be addressed as “mister” or “men,” especially “gentlemen” or any other title that conveyed status. Fifty years before there was an American Southwest, cowboy, with the diminutive (extremely or unusually small) term “boy,” was a constant derogatory term for a black male, that included not only “cowboy,” but house boy,” “field boy,” “stable boy,” and “under boy,” (personal body servants during the Civil War).

    After the Civil War, new land rush laws sparked the westward movement,Fifteen million new European immigrants arrived in the latter part of the 1800′s, but the ranching and cattle industry of the Southwest, especially along the Texas Gulf Coast, was wholly dependent on black labor. Many of the slaves served as cowboys who drove cattle north from Texas between 1866 and 1895 were black.

    Re: Patent office cancels Redskins trademarks

    If it is true, which apparently it is in this case, that the team sought out the approval of Indian tribes when they were naming the team, who should pay for the name change if people now are offended?

    Is the team responsible for changing times, or even more to the point, changing people?

    A small minority want the name change, so shouldn't they foot the bill if they are the ones that are offended?

    Why are you trying to imply that the word Redskins is a common term to refer to an Indian?
