    Who uses the term Redskin in today's world? I certainly have never heard it... not once, and I have been around reservations, cowboys and Native Americans (Cherokee and Apache) quite a bit.

    Harry Reid is making this political. Did you see that SOB on the Senate floor today throwing lobs at Snyder?

    Washington Wops?
    Washington Crazy Ass Crackers?
    Gooks?
    Palefaces?
    That is if you think Redskins is a racial slur.

    But because the Indian people--our "Native Americans" around here mostly refer to themselves as "Indians" so I do too--were treated badly in their history, must we assume that it is shameful somehow to refer to any of their history now? And while we can tease or caricature or utilize a real or mythical trait of almost any other ethnic group for fun and profit, that Native American people are somehow too fragile or unworthy to be included in that?
    I think the point is that they don't refer to themselves as "Redskins" instead of the more general term "Indians" or "Native Americans", any more than Asians refer to themselves as "Orientals".

    The fact that Reid is against the use of the name only makes me that much more in Snyder's court.

    Harry Reid is offensive to me. I'll bet I can find 4 others who say the same thing. I wonder if I can get him removed because he offends me.

    When does anybody anymore use the Word Redskins unless they are talking about the team?

    Can anybody post instances of where the term was used as a racial slur?
