Yeah but the 40 million was good to cover your 4 on Harry wasn't it.
You should have short-quoted me for band-width--I do it all the time.
The Redskin apparel, uniforms and insignia should be accompanied with some sort of PC bull**** like a cigarette warning,
proclaiming the virtues of Native American Redskins.
Otherwise, the NRA could push for the Washington Semi-Automatics .
Chemists Have Solutions .
The friggin government has enough crap it has gotten itself into to worry about what a damn team is named....
Speaking of teams names, when is Obama's hometown team changing its name? Chicago Blackhawks? Lets see him use the police power of government to force them into changing their name.
Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.
Agreed, it's the best we have. But it should be weighted according to its reliability which is better than nothing, but not great.I admit, it's an old poll. The data may have changed slightly. But once again I'll note it is the most recent FACTUAL EVIDENCE on this manner that I've seen. if you have something more recent please present it. Otherwise I'll go with scientifically conducted, FACTUAL, information over anecdotal evidenced based primarily over whose loudest and gets the most media attention (Which has been deridingly skewed)
Touche' Point you.I find this funny that you claim "native americans", stated in this broad fashion, have been complaining since the 60's...but then suddenly you're suggesting that native americans didn't have the knowledge to be introspective on the issue
True, but aren't those the ones we should be most concerned with?Not all native americans are members of active tribes.
Yes, but statically understating demographically concentrated areas will skew your polls.Once again, native americans on reservations are not the only native americans. Secondly, that still provides for a significant sample on reservations that were able to answer a land line poll. Once again, do some research and take some classes on how polling is conducted....the entire purpose for scientific polling is an understanding that you can't reach every single person within a population.
And no, that's not accurate.. In any statistical query you're going to have a confidence measure. I'd say that you could say with 10% confidence that 90% of Native Americans are not bothered by the Redskins name.Which is why it's accurate to claim, at the very least, 90% of native americans are not bothered by the name.
There's nothing more recent. But things don't become more true in the absence of other information.You find me something "more accurate" or "more recent" and I'll be happy to have it. If you don't, all you're doing is pissing and moaning with quibbles and casting stones because I'm actually going off something factually sound and you're going off pure and utter anecdotal. You say the poll has issues? I say your factual evidence as to the names offense or the belief of native americans that it should be changed to be nonexistent. I'll take some minor issues over nonexistent.
My first take on this was that it was rubbish. The Redskins have been the redskins since forever, how could anyone find that offensive? Then I thought about what the name actually means, who it refers to, and what we did to the people it refers to. Then suddenly I could see why people would find it offensive.
Many of those groups were outwardly opposed to the name back in 2004 too. So that doesn't really change things.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
