    So what? They're not named "The White People". Stereotyping a job is not the same as stereotyping a race.


    The "warmonger" angle is your personal invention. There's nothing warlike in the Redskins logo.
    Are you totally ignorant? The logo and the mascot depict NAs as warmongers (in war paint and on the war path, respectively).

    Please identify the "warmonger" aspect of the logo.

    Until that number continues to shrink and it is profitable to switch over the name, I would keep it. That being said, holding on to a sport's team name with the fear of God is unbelievably stupid. We have the capability to create a new name, a new logo, and make a ton of dough from it. Sports fans aren't that hard to please once they get a new shiny object in front of them.

    **** them, huh? We'll just paint everyone with the same brush, as long as you like it.
    I didn't say anything about anyone else. I told you I'd love it, and I would. There should be no shame in being a fierce warrior.

    It was not the origin of the name and has nothing to do with the topic.

    Who cares? Were talking about sociology not what any individual approves of. You like it, great. It's still wrong.

    Does that mean you support racial stereotyping as long as you like the stereotype? Because that would be really stupid.

    Oh chill out Eco. I was just adding my opinion. It doesn't matter if you approve or not. Jesus Christ on a cracker.

    If it makes you feel better, we'll ignore the context that smart people are aware of and pretend this exists in a vacuum.

    It's wrong to stereotype a race as "fierce warriors".

    Keep supporting racial stereotypes and telling everyone how much you love them. Looks real enlightened.
