    It's no different than having the "Washington White People" and the mascot/emblem/etc being a warmonger. Of course, then you'd be all "Hey! Not all white people are warmongers!"

    If Native Americans themselves want the name changed, it should be changed.

    If they don't, then I don't care.
    The time has long passed for anyone to object to their team name... It's become tradition and as much as the left hates tradition, most American's obviously don't agree.

    Remember, America is not a place where people have the right NOT to be offended...

    Offense has nothing to do with the objection. Only stupid people think offense is the deciding factor. Smart people understand that racial stereotypes are bad for society.

    The kindest description of that claim is that it's ridiculous. Raiders? Saints? Vikings? Cowboys? Buccaneers? At the college level the pool of names is even deeper.

    Raiders, Saints, Vikings, Cowboys and Buccaneers are not races.
