    Possibly your time would be better spent in a gulch somewhere, inventing, pontificating, blathering.....
    Just a thought.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Quantify the exact harm done by a team name, and harm done to Native American's over a name and logo that they not only approved when adopted, but had input in creating?

    I do know a **** load about "American First Nations" History, and "warrior" is only a compliment in some tribes. Your posts here show the usual level of "cowboys and injuns" myth starting with the fact that there were over a hundred co-existing nations with well formed societies, complete with legal structure some of whom taught the Pinksins how to survive.

    The "warrior" label along with "redskin" is continuing the stereotypical myth that "Indians" are "savages", when it was they who were the scouts and frontiersmen who taught pinksins and were repaid by being kicked out of their traditional lands and slaughtered in "take no prisoners raids" killing women and children indiscriminately. The "savages" were the ones with cannons and muskets with a greed-thirst for free land
    I'm just curious how noting the color of their skin that the white men saw many generations ago is "stereotyping"?

    I agree that white men were very brutal to the Indians. But the Indians were also very brutal to whites in return. It was a pretty ugly time in history.

    Indians were pretty brutal to each other, too. Ya know, people throughout history have been brutal to other people, and race or ethnicity hasn't always mattered. It could be two groups vying for control within a larger group... people just suck. There's nothing new here, yet some act like it is.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The competitive tribes sold each other out in Connecticut & New York. They were very brutal to each other. For some pretty disturbing reading, research what the Mohegan tribe did to help John Mason slaughter the Pequots in 1637.

    Wow...to each their own.

    The Classic Chicken Sandwich and Wendy's Chicken Sandwich aren't even in the same ball park to the Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich for me. To even compare that flimsy patty that is the McChicken to the Chick-Fil-A sandwich is just an insult. Yeah, it's CHEAPER...that doesn't mean better.

    And I personally prefer their waffle fries to pretty much any of the fries from the Big 3 other than perhaps a fresh out of the frier McD's fries.

    Everyones got a different taste but...yeah, for me, Chick-Fil-A's sandwich and nuggets are the best in class.

    That is my point Tres.


    This began over "savages" not just "Redskin"; my point is that "savages" IS stereotyping as it only portrays redskins as such while ignoring the savagery you acknowledge. If "they" were savages, so were whites, so maybe we can focus on the culture, the structure and spiritualism they also had, recognize that even with modern building techniques we would be hard pressed to build the villages of the Pueblos; maybe acknowledge that Captain Meriwether Lewis would not have survived without the help and guidance of local peoples, despite the fact he often angered them by not knowing local customs.

    I get all that. I have no clue what it has to do with the name "Redskins".
