    No problem- lots of Irishmen in the USA.

    And quite a few who claim to be Irish.

    Would you say the Patent Office is being an Indian giver?

    LOL. Yeah, the Hawks don't get much press out east. Their defense did something only one other team ever has done. Led the league in the trifecta of defensive stats.

    Fewest points allowed.
    Fewest yards allowed.
    Most turnovers.

    The other team? 85 Bears.

    LOB!

    I'm going to steal that.
    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.

    But what is really offensive about the term 'Redskins' when associated with a popular sporting event with fans who are proud of their team and cheer it on and regard it fondly? Yes, a generic Native American caricature is used but it is not one that is insulting but rather endearing and shown in a positive light. Nobody sees Notre Dame's 'fighting Irish' as offensive. The Seminole Indians, to their credit, gave the Florida Seminoles a green light to continue to use their tribal name proudly. That's the attitude that should be promoted I believe.

    Nobody can tell somebody else what they OUGHT to feel about anything. But if I was a Native American, I would personally be proud that I was seen as worthy to represent something the American people see as a good, healthy, all-American institution.
    There's a world of difference between a tribes name and a racial slur. And remember, the Native Americans were kind of genocided and Washington DC was the capital of the country that did the bulk of the killing and land theft. The Redskins most rabid fans call themselves the "Hogs", they could easily change their name to the Pigskins, and everyone calls them the 'skins anyway.

    It's hard to imagine a team name being more offensive. You'd have to have something like a Football team in Rowanda calling themselves the Inyenzis to come close.

    85 Bears were in my top 10 favorite teams ever! I love McMahon with his headband protest!

    I admit the Hawks were very very very good. Just like the Patriots were for a few years. That doesn't mean I have to like them.

    As a White person I find Cracker barrel racist.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    I am beginning to think that "political correctness" is just something invented by white people to keep non-white people distracted and let everyone think they are winning some battle for rights, while the actual oppression against them continues.

    I don't know if you meant to make a funny or not, but this made me laugh out loud. Well done!

    And yeah I'm also white and am offended by that name. That & "Easy Blonde" are both now on my **** list. I need to get 4 of my blonde friends to agree, and I'm going to the Patent Office.
