    Not being a minority, you wouldn't understand.

    Sure thing there C. Let's check the latest.

    Encourage invasion by peasants from foreign countries, and then tell the citizens who will be most impacted by their numbers to F off in the fallout from the policy.

    Enslave, then throw away.

    An awesome and epically racist policy of slow motion genocide. Congrats, Progressives deserve all the accolades for such an amazing agenda.

    Remarkable how far Progs are willing to go for political expediency.

    Because the labeling of you by skin color does not represent a threat at a social level. Being labeled by skin color as a minority carries with it social threat.

    Let's not pretend everything is the same for you and a minority. Social power dynamics are important.

    There are others all over the reservation schools in this country still using the nam. I posted an example a few pages back.

    Citation?

    I've seen this claim 5 times recently, and never a citation.

    I don't even care if someone calls me a white mother****er. But, that's the benefit of privilege. If I wasn't white and some white mother****er called me redskin, he'd be lying on his back.

When minority groups are marginalized in this fashion it takes people in the majority population to help get their cause noticed. It takes time to build up a resistance to the tyranny of the majority.
    Offensive, or not, the patent office doesn't have the authority to regulate free speech.

    Is it bad to have red skin?

Heck during the height of it, even some ESPN announcer were calling the Braves, the Bravos. What the heck is a Bravo?

    Perhaps all these goody two shoes who want the name changed so bad would be better off to put all that energy into helping the Indians achieve a better life. They seem to think if the name is changed, then all is right with the world.
    Calling the Braves the "Bravos" is not about a PC thing. It's like calling the 49ers the Niners.

    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
