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.
    The name honors the fighting spirit of native Americans, it doesn't disparage them.

    It ain't human nature to move on from the past.

    It is recognized as such by multiple dictionaries and encyclopedias. I have no idea what point you have left.
    That nobody actually uses the term anymore, much like pakeha here... and he admits that it "sometimes" used derogatorily, but I am seeing a pattern with you in twisting things.

    There is truth to what you say. It's just that it is shocking to see tears and tantrums when the word "compromise" is mentioned, and just because he's been pushing his luck does not mean he can expect to continue to do so indefinitely without blowback. His own people are complaining about his lack of leadership in getting anything done in the Senate!

    There is really no point in dwelling on the past. You can't change it, and you can't very well fix it, so we either move on or we just stay stuck in a past we can't do anything about.
