    Um...you asked:

    "Who uses the term Redskin in today's world?"

    It certainly gives an indication of the amount of use. Further it indicates the common understanding today that it is derogatory slang......but I imagine not even that makes a difference.

    To me it promotes courage, honor and spirit just as the Pittsburgh Pirates or Minnesota Vikings do. I am of Viking ancestry but do not find the Vikings offensive even though my ancestors murdered, raped, enslaved and pillaged innocent people for centuries.
    I think there's a bit of confusion here. We aren't talking about the offensiveness of using a Native American likeness as a sports mascot. We're talking solely about the Redskins which use a racial slur as a team name. By definition, redskins is offensive. (at least that's what the dictionary says).

    Harry Reid said he wants the name changed because it is offensive to Native American.....change the name or suffer the consequences.

    Dan Snyder should hold a press conference and change the name of the team...period, no questions asked. And this is how I see that conference going...

    "Today is the very last day you will ever see the name Washington Redskins. It is offensive, abusive and intolerant and I fought it long enough. Effective immediately, we will now be known as the Maryland Redskins because the name Washington has become so offensive to every American that we can not sit by and willingly offend the American people and the NFL fan base."
    I. Love. It.

    Do you not see the word dated before offensive?

    How dare he use his 1st amendment rights.
    You may want to look up Pelosi's comments as well, though you guys have been tame on her lately--it's still early.

    The fact that Reid is against the use of the name only makes me that much more in Snyder's court.
    certainly not hackish here.
    Harry Reid is offensive to me.

    I'll bet I can find 4 others who say the same thing.
    I'll bet I can find 40 million.
    4 is a good # with you guys.
    remember 4 dead in O--hi--o; just replace with Ben--gha--zi
    I wonder if I can get him removed because he offends me.
    The GOP should have won this seat in 2010--that must be the maddening part to you.
    In all sincerity, I would vote for Sen. Gillibrand over Sen. Warren for Majority Leader.
    Warren is my pit bull .

    Niggers and Redskins are not analogous words.
    Racial slur to racial slur. You're only pissed because it's your favorite team, so anything is "asinine" in your view. Maybe I want to honor black people for their bravery in the face of slavery and racism.

    We have reached a point where the only acceptable racism is against Native Americans. And you're hanging on to it with all your might.

    He/She answered his/her own question.

    It says right in the definition the word is dated which means it is not used anymore for that purpose.

    The patent office doesn't have the power to violate the Constitution, neither.

    Racial slurs are protected by the 1st Amendment.

    You can't be that obtuse... "Who uses the term", means in common conversation or as an actual insult and NOT in a form of debate or research. We have used the term "Redskin" (oh ****, I just used it again!) to talk about who really uses it as an insult. ...but then again, maybe you are just an intellectually dishonest person. Seems so thus far.
