    Who is "we"? I never killed anyone and never took anything from anyone.

    This is America. If you live here, you're living in America. I want to live here too, and the price I pay for it is taxes.

    Which tribal people today were "forced" into becoming Americans? The ones whose parents were just passing through?

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 Washington Redskins are part of a segregationalist social framework, and are similar to reservations? You didn't seriously type that.

    Take that up with the people who migrated to this country. I'd call John Winthrop and yell at him for coming to New England and bringing his diseases to the Native Americans here who died from them, but since he's been dead since 1649, I doubt I'll get him on the phone.

    As far as my land being stolen, the names on our deed (mine and my husband's) prove otherwise.

That didn't make their creation any less racist or the result of a racist process. The whole concept of naming a team after a race of people is alien to me though. I simply don't see how a person can claim that there is nothing "racial" or even "racialist" about trying to make money on the backs of romanticized noble savage memorabilia that nobody in the team has any relation to. The fact that they expect no criticism for it is kind of like those black people who set up Chinese restaurants and then expect no criticism when people point out some of the food isn't even Chinese.
    Again with the Negro Leagues. We aren't talking about the Negro Leagues, nor are we talking about black people and why they joined the only leagues they COULD join at the time.

    Or are you saying that the reservation schools (with 100% Native American populations in them) have no choice but to use what you consider a slur?

    So people shouldn't make money on the backs of others? Then when are you going to scream about the Vikings? How many Vikings play for the NFL in Minnesota?

    Good grief.

    Re: Patent office cancels Redskins trademarks

    50 years ago white people all over the South, without batting any eye, walked past countless drinking fountains, lunch counters, department stores, and hospitals which were denied to blacks. They sat at the front of the bus thinking nothing was odd when all the blacks were shuffled to the rear. A hundred years before then most of them thought enslaving blacks was fine too.

    Well, today a bunch of whites watch football thinking nothing is wrong with calling a team "Redskins". What will people say about that 50 years from now? 150?

    Which drinking fountains and lunch counters are the Washington Redskins denying to Native Americans?

    His Negro League thing is nothing more than a Straw Man Fallacy. Pretty much bunk and below his ability level too.

    They'll agree that the people that thought calling a team the Redskins was perfectly fine... not to mention that your entire argument here is a Straw Man.

    No offense but that post sounds like it was written by a drunk...
