    Re: Patent office cancels Redskins trademarks

    For those either worried about, or arguing against, the slippery slope....note that the plantiff of the case against the Redskins that went to the Patent Office (and will now go to the courts) that is generally the "face" of the group of 5 has made it clear that her goal is not JUST the Redskins:

    (SOURCE)

    “I’m not sure there’s anything the [Chiefs] can do at this point other than look for another name,” Blackhorse told the Kansas City Star. “They could be the team that says, ‘You know what? We understand the issue and we don’t want to be Dan Snyder and fight this in court forever. We want to do the right thing and move forward and avoid this entire battle.’ I’m sure fans will be upset, but still, that’s doing the right thing. If they want to be sensitive to Native American people, that’s the thing to do.”
    Change the name or engage in a fight in the courts forever ala Dan Snyder.

    Would you be offended by any of these logos if they were real teams?

    Not very accurate comparison. Redskin is a pejorative. So you'd need to change them to their derogatory names with those logos.

    Okay fine. You fill in the pejorative.

    The Anaheim one because it has an established racial history. I'd probably say the Mexicans as well since the caricature isn't just with cartoonish features but with clearly added things to make it look more negatively, such as the gold tooth. The Italian one would simply make me think they missed the boat, "Mafiosos" would have been a much cooler name to pair with the look; but even with my ancestry being more italian than anything else it wouldn't offend me. The jew and chinese one would probably coincide with what I said about the Indians.

    All of which, of course, are a ridiculous hypothetical taking a single instance of a situation with all sorts of additional factor surrounding it and just a continuation of your attempt to distract from the fact you made a patently false claim, got called on it, and are desperately trying to divert the conversation because of it.

    You're coming in at the end of the conversation. He claimed the Redskin's logo was a caricature...I informed him he was just factually wrong in pretty much every fashion of the word....he then tried to divert from his previous comment by randomly tossing the Indians logo into the conversation because he stepped in it when talking about the Redskins logo instead of the name and needed to find some other logo to talk about...even though it's not the topic of the thread at all...in an effort to cover up his mistake.

    As such, the posting of the pictures didn't have anything to do with the Redskins, but rather the Cleveland Indians logo.

    Sure...

    Anaheim Niggers
    Memphis Wetbacks
    Indianapolis Wops
    Cleveland Redskins
    Miami Kikes
    San Francisco Chinks

    When those mascots are these then they parallel the Washington Redskins.

    Yeah I guess I missed all that.

    I just think that we should leave race/ethnicity/caricatures out of it. Name the team something that is not controversial.

    If a credible percentage of Native Americans are offended by the Redskins, or any other Indian Mascot team name, then the name should be changed.
