    Anecdotal evidence is like real evidence only more anecdotal.

    The notion that all American Indians are ethnic is crazy - you may as well say all Italians, Asians, Mexicans etc are all "ethnic" when they're anything but - now that is stereotyping right there.

    As a white guy I don't think it's your place to say whether or not Indians can or should be offended by a racial slur. Indians are the only ones who can decide if they are offended or not.

    I've never seen or heard of another sports team with an Asian, Italian, or Mexican racial slur for their team name.

    I was replying to a post that took the position that if Native Americans don't care then the poster didn't care. Please pay attention.

    Beyond that, I don't think the name stereotypes anyone.

    It's a pile of garbage that helps men feel better about having small dicks. Show me a fanatic of that garbage, and I'll show you a person lacking in a certain category.

    Why do you think it sold so well? haha

    People being offended or not is irrelevant!

    Racial stereotyping is bad for society - end of story.
    But it's not illegal and until it is, the story goes on.

    The name itself doesn't necessarily stereotype Native Americans, in and of itself, but THE DEPICTION DOES.

    No one can be this clueless. Seriously? You don't understand that?

    True, but the moron Reid opined on the Senate floor about it. He's an ass.
