    Oh my gosh. If you were using the correct definition of "racist", then this comment would mean so much to me. Alas, I am not so fortunate.

    Don't tell me, you're talking about that bizarre liberal definition where only white people can be racists, right?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

You cant worship and revere a savage and prehistoric culture and expect respect from anyone who understands the value of modern culture. Its people like you who pander to their backwardness that keep them impoverished in the richest nation mankind has ever known.
    Admittedly, you did do better because you made actual arguments this time. Now, the next time you go outside find a BOOKSTORE or a LIBRARY. When you're inside, go to the HISTORY section. Find a couple books about Native American History and READ THEM. Then, you will not only be able to make arguments about "Native American culture". You will be able to make EDUCATED arguments about it and we can have more fruitful conversations.

    In other words, you've got nothing either. Somehow, I'm not surprised.

    Very interesting. Go after corporate sponsors.
    Very stupid imo. However he does have that right. I just hope the rest of the people that he's telling this to ignores him. No matter what anyone says there is nothing wrong with "Redskins" when it is referring to this football team. Wish people would start looking at the context of how a word is used before starting to call foul. (pun intended )

    Here on the left coast the bears are refusing to **** in the woods until Chief Geoffrey M. Standing Bear removes the word "bear" from his name.

    Im not going to do that for one simple reason: I don't care. There is nothing to gain from a study of ancient indian culture. If I am going to study ancient culture, I prefer Greece and Rome. Those cultures actually accomplished something. But those are dead cultures too. If people were milling about in robes and leaf hats on Roman Reservations I would be just as critical of them.

    Okay. I won't tell you what definition of racist I'm using if you won't reveal your level of education on racial issues. OH WAIT, you don't have a choice in revealing that because everything you've posted makes your lack of education on the subject painfully obvious. My bad.

    That's because you're using a very specific, self-serving definition of racism, that's why talking to you liberals is pointless. But sure, stew in your self-imposed liberal ignorance, it makes no difference to me.

    Finally, someone uneducated who admits that they don't want to be educated. Why didn't you just say that from the get go instead of pretending that you knew what you were talking about? Could have saved some time.
