    It's a metaphor for pointing out the changing standards. 30-40 years ago slurs were common: Gook, Chink, Spic, Kike, Jap...the whole nine yards, few people hesitated using them in 1975. Nowadays those words jump right out of the page at you.

    Times change. Common sense suggests that the team in our nation's capital follows suit. It seems rather silly to defend their use of what many perceive is a racial slur. And, I don't even care.

    Is that a rhetorical question?

    Nonsense. But you go right on believing it.

    How many times have you called a Native American a "redskin" as a means of insulting them? How many times have you heard the term used outside of the team we all know and hate (at least we Giants fans hate them!)?

    Many? How many and who? Are there numbers?


    (I believe there was research/polling done on this with Native Americans years ago, and they found 9 out of 10 didn't care about the use of the term)
