    why? It should not matter what your race is. Calling someone a demeaning name should not matter what race they are.

    IMO, this issue regarding the NFL Washington Redskins is just another political correctness ploy.

    To solve the issue, I think we should demand the name be changed to the Washington Oklahoma. , oh wait, that won't work. Oklahoma means "red skin" in Choctaw

    Seems the patent office should have rejected the team name back in 1967.

    So your entire point of wanting my attention was to say that you think "Redskins" is a slur and it bothers you that I don't, and it's irrelevant that Native Americans use it to describe themselves.

    Good. Easy. You won a symbolic battle for slurs then with this ruling. Be happy now.

    No, the 10 posts have shown why using a race's usage of a slur is a terrible measure of a slur's sociocultural implications. That you haven't grasped that after the 3-4 different ways I've explained it is indicative that you really do have reading comprehension issues.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Um, no, it's that you have your opinion on what's racist and I have mine. Don't you love America? We are actually allowed to have our own thoughts. Neat country, this.

    When my opinion is based on academic research, historiographical articles on the slurs and examples across a myriad of similar cases, it's a little more than "an opinion". On the other hand, - "your opinion" is hardly more than an attempt at being relevant and isn't really based on much of anything. It has also failed on a number of grounds. The first is that there are so many historically inconsistent holes in it, it's like shooting fish in a bucket. The second is that it simply isn't based on any kind of historic example that could support it. However, I am a benevolent person and welcome you back when you've studied more on this issue. Toodles.

    How kind of you. I never knew until this post that you were the one who authorized opinions on DP. The things I learned already!

    I don't have to do research, Hatuey. I'll say it again. I have my opinion on what is "racist" and you have yours. I'm 52 and didn't fall off the turnip truck last week. You won't change mine, and I'm not trying to change yours. We disagree on this issue. Pretty simple. Have a great Thursday!

    Why is it now such an issue? seems the NFL has used the name since at least 1967.
    Can you provide evidence that the name "Washington Redskins" has been used as a slur?

    My impression is that is demonstrated a proud/brave/warrior type. Much like the Florida Seminols, Alanta Braves, Clevland Indians.
    People can make it a slur, but that is their problem.
    It is a shame we are becoming so pc.

    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.
    There is no such thing as PC police. Anyone pushing that whiny diatribe is doing nothing but playing the victim card. No one is out to get you. There are no PC police. You can say all the heinous crap you want... just like you did in that last post... and I'll bet that there have been no police knocking on your door since you said that heinous crap have there?

    Did I miss all of Hatuey's links to back up his rant?
    I disagree with him also on this issue. The short of it, you cannot please all people 100% of the time.

    It just seems interesting that now after 47 years of the name in place, it has got to go. Yes, there has been minor objections in the past, but the courts ruled in favor of the Team.
    It is PC running amok., imo.
