When I was selling cars in Las Vegas, we wouldn't sell any cars to Indians on time.
Can anybody guess why?
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 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).
