    In the beginning, native Americans were in on the naming of the team.

    The very reason that no other sports team name is as funny as the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. It was cute when a movie used that name for little peewee hockey players. It was amazingly odd when an NFL team made up of fighting goons was created with the same not-so-tough name.

    Makes you wonder what kind of emo kids are all butt-hurt over it, doesn't it? I've got Native American ancestors on my mother's side and I think this is pure attention-whoring.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Yup, Lone Star Dietz, although some say his Native American ancestry is BS like Senator Elizabeth Warren's has proven to be.

    I can't imagine a more racist process. "Enslaving" is an appropriate name for it.
    There are a lot of progressive policies which are enabling...that's not to say they are racist. In fact, more whites benefit from them than black.

    Greetings, tres borrachos.
    Morning Pol. Right on.

    Lost in this kerfuffle over the word is the Government stepping in to economically harm a legitimate organization because they feel like it.

    Are so many really trying to claim they have no problem with Government applying subjective rulings by personal whim?

    Calling a team the Braves, Warriors, Black Hawks, even Indians is not the same as "Redskins". You don't see that?
