    Look a few pages back. The example I posted was from a Navajo reservation school district in AZ - 100% of the students are Navajo and live on the reservation. It was last night I posted it.

    Which they didn't say that they couldn't use the name. Just that they lost some patent protection.

    The Skins could even still win a civil suit, it only means that a patent infringement couldn't be brought in criminal court.

    So you're saying it's bad to have red skin.

    What color skin is it good to have?

    So your saying "I've got Native ancestry and I'm not offended" overrides their "I've got Native ancestry and I am offended?"

    I think it's bad to take a race of human beings as a mascot like we do lions and tigers and bears.

    If that's true, it's only one school.

    I want a citation for "all over", "plenty of them", "everywhere" and other such claims.

    So it's not an insult to say someone has red skin.
