    I wonder if we will see more stories like this?

    A longtime chief of a major Virginia Native American tribe said he would be offended if the Washington Redskins DID change the team name and said society has gotten too "politically correct" and "touchy" these days.

    Speaking on Sirius XM NFL Radio's "The Morning Drive" on Wednesday, Robert "Two Eagles" Green, whom CBS notes "retired from his presiding role over the 1300-member Patawomeck Tribe in March," said most members of his tribe "don’t find" the Redskins name to be "offensive.”
    “I’ve been a Redskins fan for years and to be honest with you, I would be offended if they did change it," Green said.
    Chief Green said his research indicated the term came from Indians, and it is "not a term that the white man created." He said Native Americans used the term to refer to themselves in negotiations with white settlers and noted "we have people in this country that try and gin up problems that don’t exist.”. . .

    And there's ample evidence to suggest that the method of it's use by the Washington Redskins is in line with the uses of it that don't align with a racial slur.
    Which evidence is that? Every dictionary classifies it as a usually offensive term. By definition, it's offensive. Sure it's possible for someone to use the term as a legitimate compliment, but they're just using it wrong.

    Native Americans have been officially protesting the name since 1968. A huge list of announcers and writers have announced that they are boycotting the name redskins. They're the 'skins, not the redskins. And even if you view this as a borderline issue, our historical mistreatment of the Native Americans would seem to argue for a little bit of deference.

    What the Redskins do is their business. If they want a racist name and are willing to live with the consequences, then so be it. But changing their name to the Pigskins, or back to the braves is kind of the obvious call.

    •Local property taxes are not paid on reservation or trust land.
    Comes with the institutional guilt we have for decimating their population, taking everything they had and then lying and cheating on damn near every treaty we signed with them. I'm not going to get too upset because they aren't paying taxes.

    You are seriously arguing that no one you knew who is Polish was bothered by the derogatory use of "Polack" when it was directed at them?

    Whatever, but growing up in Phoenix I often saw my friends bothered when they were called "beaners".

    Yes I do think it was added into the Constitution for a reason and I stated what the reason was. Did you miss that?
