    Please identify the "warmonger" element.

    It's a depiction of a NA warrior. The mascot is a NA warrior. Not all NAs are warriors.

    The warmonger element is seen when we consider context, which you appear unable to grasp.

    It's wrong to stereotype a race as "fierce warriors".
    Really? You mean like the "Screaming Eagles" of the 101st Airborne Division?

    Is the 101st, or eagles, a race?

    On the contrary. He's merely a Native American male. The "warmonger" imputation is your own personal contribution.

    All Native American males were warriors, in war paint and on the warpath? Is that still true today?

    You see, when you claim everyone in a race is warriors, you are -in fact- calling them warmongers.

    There is in the logo no war paint or any connection to the war path or, indeed, anything warlike at all.

    No, I just know the difference between dumb people and intelligent people - and I have no problem pointing that or the differences out.

    You on the other hand seem to believe that we're all the same.

    Some people use their brains and others use their primal instincts - American Indians don't meet that criteria but some races do, and I'm not going to shy away from explaining that.

    There is a reason why I'm not genetically programmed to resort to violence for every disagreement...

    Still waiting to learn about the "warmonger" element in the Redskins' logo.
