    If it was the "Washington White People" and portrayed white people as warmongers, you'd object.

    Actually it is true. My father used to call them the red legs. He was a Cubs fan.

    Blackhawks is not a race. It's a tribe and the tribe gave permission.

    I'd personally love it. I don't think it's shameful to be mighty warriors.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That was only for a few years, in the 1950s, out of fear of being seen as representing communism, and is not the origin of the name.

    And what about white people that are not "mighty warriors" and they do not wish to be "mighty warriors"?

    **** them, huh? We'll just paint everyone with the same brush, as long as you like it.

    We already have that with Raiders and Vikings depicted as violent white people. The "warmonger" angle is your personal invention. There's nothing warlike in the Redskins logo.
