    Next time we go to Mohegan Sun (which happens to be this weekend woot!) I'm going to have to stop myself from screaming "REDSKIN" when the valet doesn't bring my car soon enough.

    When I was selling cars in Las Vegas, we wouldn't sell any cars to Indians on time.

    Can anybody guess why?

    Disparaging, my ass.
    Perhaps if they called themselves the Washington White Trash you'd find it disparaging

    This has opened a can of worms that I think - hope - the government will regret.
    Excessive whining over this only reveals a clear dislike of natives. Sorry but bigots don't get to have an opinion

    Look C.B., your comparisons simply aren't even remotely the same. The Vikings? What ethnic group currently living in North America are they named after? None? Alright. Moving on. The point of your argument was a weak one. If some NAs like it, why is it slur and why is it bad to use it? Actually, it was a slur before they started using it. Arbo provided the context in which the word has been used for the past 200 years, though it has gone back and forth for about half that time, the last 100 years it has been covered with the same noble savage, violent savage tinge that idealizes NAs without seriously looking at the effects of that word. Now, you can keep complaining and complaining - but it's a slur. It's no different than nigger or mick or slut or even guinea. It's a slur. There is nothing positive about it and that it's still being used perpetuates false stereotypes of that ... what was it? "Fighting spirit" Grim talked about. You know, the fighting spirit that got 25 million of them exterminated.
    If it's a slur, you may want to call them up and tell them they're slurring themselves. It doesn't bother me, but clearly the word bothers you. How about educating them?

    I never exterminated anyone. Who did you exterminate?

    This is nothing but the latest panty twist from folks seeking attention. Did anyone think the Washington Redskins were meant to demean and disparage Indians?

    Does anyone comment on the genocides conducted by Indians against each other?

    This angst is nothing but lame PC BS from the "sensitive" crowds on the left.

    I have a Dale Earnhardt jacket that is worth a few bucks. Not for sale.
    I am not really a collector.

    Re: Patent office cancels Redskins trademarks

    I don't think this is right. While I understand the sentiments of some groups, the government should not have the right to do this just because some might be offended. That is not the point at all of the patent office. This opens up the possibility that copywrites for books or movies or other patented or copywrited material that might be deemed "racist" or offensive in nature could lose their copywrite due to this belief of offense.

    While I don't believe in being offensive and think that ownership of certain copywrites/patents should be limited, this is not such a case. This is a very specific association that they have a right, no matter how offensive some may find it, to hold that name and even the image. Freedom of speech says that this is not something for the government to decide, but rather for the people to decide and take care of via the people putting pressure on the owners (if the people feel it is wrong).
