    I don't think you did.

    Do you support racial stereotyping? It's a simple question, a yes or no will do.

    Washington Redskins name controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In the 1940s the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) created a campaign to eliminate negative stereotyping of Native American people in the media. Over time, the campaign began to focus on Indian names and mascots in sports.[267] The NCAI maintains that teams with mascots such as the Braves and the Redskins perpetuate negative stereotypes of Native American people, and demean their native traditions and rituals.[268] The NCAI issued a new report in 2013 summarizing opposition to Indian mascots and team names generally, and the Washington Redskins in particular.[269] In the trademark case, the board placed significance on the NCAI opposition, estimating that the organization represented about 30% of the Native American population at the time the trademarks were granted.[270]

    The following groups have passed resolutions or issued statements regarding their opposition to the name of the Washington NFL team:

    No most aren't American Indians - they're white progressives...

    The American Indian population isn't very large unlike the white progressive population.

    Either way it is still a stupid thing to bitch about..

    I do if the racial stereotyping is accurate.

    Truth is not wrong and there should be no shame in observation..

    No, absolutely not...

    My point was merely some perceived negative stereotypes of all cultures and races are accurate.

    That's all...

    All stereotypes cannot always be positive...

    False.

    Who cares if they are positive or not?


    Now that we've established what stereotype means, perhaps you can justify stereotyping a race?

    You're living in la la land if you actually believe stereotypes don't exist..


    Well, I believe in the Bell Curve if you even know what that is.

    If everyone was the same the science of Anthropology wouldn't even exist because it would be a redundant science.

    Sorry but facts cant always be politically correct.

    Indians will always be a minority but the vast majority of them appear to be against the name.
