    Yeah, the name is not going to change. It'll blow over in a month or two, maybe less.

    No, the sensitive people will continue to melt down about it. The other NFL owners will get pissed because merchandise is pooled and the revenue shared, and they won't want to take a hit. Harry Reid will carry on on the Senate floor again soon enough. One of the Redskin cheerleaders will hire Gloria Allred to represent her. It will re-emerge.

    correct. the government can't silence something simply because they or someone else might find it offensive. that does not pass constitutional muster.
    the patent office doesn't have the right to cancel a trademark as long as the team as paid and continued to pay for the trademarking.

    I guarantee if you look more into this the Obama administration or harry reid has pressured someone in the patent office to do it.

    redskins will fight this an win just like they have all the other times before.

    There won't be a revenue hit as long as it's in court, the Redskins still have the trademark patent until it's all resolved. The Redskins' best plan of attack is simply to ignore any further protests, which is what they should have done all along.

Black people still participated in them, went to the games, cheered for their favorite teams but the creation of the leagues themselves - however.... wholehearted - were segregationist, racist and black people participated in the process even if they were the most damaged by it. In short, even though black people participated in the process of their creation, they were - from the beginning a step back in the group's assimilation.

    Likewise, Redskin is in the same type of of segregationist social framework as reservations and "Indian Status". It's all part of a package even if the group willingly participates.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    As far as federal taxes and the native american, probably should be forever, small price to pay.

    Of course not, neither did I, but I benefited from it.
