    What would be a credible percentage?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The "vast" majority aren't offended by it, just like you probably aren't really offended by the "n-word". But "Redskins" IS offensive to Native Americans, and you need to be more sensitive to their feelings.

    The N word is offensive for very different reasons, and should be expunged from our vocabularies, amongst black people as well, though they still use it. There are ball teams at Indian schools that are named Redskins!! When the "Redskins" issue first cam up, polls showed 80-90% of native Americans were not offended, but as attention has been brought to bear, and attorneys have become involved and native Americans believe there is civil suit potential and money to be made those numbers are dropping. There's far more important issues at hand to be concerned about Mosby!

    Phrasing that as a blanket statement is incorrect, as many have said publicly that they are not offended at all.

    This is patently ridiculous.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    I like it, great play on words.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Libel?

    Slander?

    Anyone?

    But really, if this is a victory for Native Americans while they're still living in psuedo-states on the reservations then they frankly deserve to be there.

    It's getting to the point where it'd be more humane just to finish the job and kill them all off.

    We should all start a team called the Alabama Niggers.

    That'd be fun.
