    In short - words have meanings - even if some within the group don't find them derogatory, it's still there. If you want me to make it even simpler: just because you have black friends, and they think it's cool for you to use the word nigger, it doesn't make it any less of a slur.
    If they do not see it as derogatory... then why is it derogatory again?

    Then you should cheer this move because when the Redskins change their name, from that day forward the value of your vintage jersey's should rise. Just as I wish I still had my Baltimore Colts pennant I got when I visited the NFL Hall of Fame when I was a kid.

    Because the 'white man' in charge says so?

    No. The Native Americans polled say so.

    You don't actually think that the Indians invented casino's, do you?

    The tobacco? Perhaps... because is has a native american on the label.

    The rapper? Within the african american community there are lighter skinned blacks. They are often referred to as red boned. I'd be willing to bet that his name probably more refers to that. It's a more common term in the South. A guy I used to work with was absolutely nuts about, as he said it, "man I love those red boned girls".

    If I don't find the word slut derogatory, is it no longer derogatory? Of course not because words have a history behind their usage, context, inference, origins, etc..
