    Or black dude or Chicano or Hispanic guy or Asian guy or referring to somebody as racially ambiguous. Only those who see their race as somebody offensive or inferior minds that somebody notices that they are of a particular race or ethnic group.

    Meanings of words change all the time. I think if we just all joined together and started a national trend to make words like "Chink" and "Wop" and "Polack" and "Dago" and "redskin" etc. etc. etc. terms of endearment instead of some artificial idea that they are somehow racial slurs, we could make one huge block of political correctness nonsense go away.

    I'd wager that the majority of Native Americans do not care one iota about this Non-issue.

    Well, the reason that so many on here were screaming for Donald Sterling's head was because they decided that he tarnished the NBA and it would cost them money, which is why they cheered like high school girls when the NBA banned him for life.

    I wonder if they'll be as concerned with the NFL's loss of revenue, and declare this an UNWISE decision because it will hurt the NFL.

    You may want to rethink that.

    Requirement? No, there's no requirement. The requirement is on other companies not to use the trademark of other companies. That has been protected in every state since colonial times in this country. In 1870, the Congress passed the federal trademark law to give protections across state lines when it became apparent that more an more companies began to do business in multiple states.

    That's just but one of the benefits, and only applies to federally protected marks. Any company in any state has trademark protection within their own state for their trademark even if they haven't registered it with the federal government. And all they have to do is show they have used it in that state before for it to be protected.

    It isn't a privilege. It's right granted by application and law, and until now, could not be revoked. This action is unprecedented and will in all likelihood fall in court.

    I'm not an attorney, but I do have three federally registered trademarks, and I do know this law because of the trouble it took and the amount of time and money it took to get them.

    Friendly advice, check you facts.

    The majority of any group are too busy to consider the sociological implications of institutionalized racism. That's why we have the Constitution.

    I'm not sorry that you cannot bring yourself to stating consistent, logical argument that doesn't contradict itself in nearly every post I respond to.
