    O.o

    That has nothing to do with what I said.

    A poster said that the name wasn't Disparaging.

    You Star stated that said person doesn't get to "decide" what is disparaging to another group.

    I pointed out that said logic applies to those who are not native american claiming that it's offensive to "Native American's" in a BROAD sense. And as such I'd hope she'd have the same kind of venom to people "deciding" what is disparaging for Native Americans in the opposite way of the person she was going after as well.

    The reality is that there is not uniformed concensus across the entire group, and there's evidence to suggest that a majority of Native Americans do NOT find the name of the football team disparaging. Claiming that it's not disparaging to native americans in a broad sense is no more "deciding" for that group then stating it IS disparaging to them in a broad sense.

    Why, would those bother you? They wouldn't bother me.

    Does that mean Libbos are going to stop dispareging Conservatives by calling us racists everytime we look up?

    How can they do that when so many Conservatives are racists?

    None of it bothers me. That's why I don't have a dog in this fight. However, common sense clearly shows that "Redskin" is an offensive term. And, I usually follow common sense.

    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what is for dinner.

    It's troublesome that people think it's perfectly fine to alienate and marginalize 10% of a population. The times are changing. 10 years ago 59% of people polled opposed same sex marriage. Today, 59% polled support it. The LGBT community is less than 10% of the population. Look how long it was okay to marginalize and alienate them.

    As far as the First Amendment goes, can anyone recite the first five words of that amendment?

    My mistake. I took your post out of context.

    If racist bigots call others racist, does it count, or does it cancel each other out?

    Why would I be? I'm a straight, white male. I rule this roost. It's kind of nice, actually. That's why I am surprised so many whites whine so much.
