    Remember, America is not a place where people have the right NOT to be offended...

    Also remember that racial slurs have no place in a civil society.

    Oh please. This is a pathetic attempt to cover for your position's idiocy. You're equating stereotyping a job with stereotyping a race.

    1. I was joking; the Reds aren't and never were named after communists.

    2. The team name was changed from Reds to Redlegs in 1954, in direct response to the Red Scare. The were the Red Stockings back in the 1880s, then the Reds until 1954. They changed back to Reds in 1960.

    No. There's no stereotype in any sense. The Redskins logo is an historical depiction no different from many others.

    False.

    The origins of the modern Cincinnati Reds can be traced to the expulsion of an earlier team bearing that name...

    Cincinnati's expulsion from the National League incensed Cincinnati Enquirer sports editor O. P. Caylor, who made two attempts to form a new league on behalf of the receivers for the now bankrupt Reds franchise. When these attempts failed, he formed a new independent ballclub known as the Red Stockings in the Spring of 1881, and brought the team to St. Louis for a weekend exhibition. The Reds' first game was a 12–3 victory over the St. Louis club...

    The Cincinnati Red Stockings left the American Association on November 14, 1889 and joined the National League along with the Brooklyn Bridegrooms after a dispute with St. Louis Browns owner Chris Von Der Ahe over the selection of a new league president.

    Some of us have lots of swinging beef.

    Exactly...... I've never even heard of Native Americans called Redskins before and I live in Indian country.

    I suppose if and when they were called redskins it had to do with their clothing and not their race.

    Either way - the Natives up here in Illinois and Wisconsin have tax-free casinos so they're doing pretty well, and are very nice people when you hit their reservations..

    I can tell you this much they love the Chicago Blackhawks jersey and are hardly offended by it...
