    Nope because I don't. Neither do you. If you think you're different because of your skin color, you're a racist.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    How dare they complain about the offensive name we gave them! They should be grateful! Let's insult them.

    New name ideas for the team: The Wops, The Micks, The Limeys, the Niggers, the Honkies, The Frogs, the Chinks, The Nips, the Hebes, the Fags, the Dykes, the Breeders...

    No one will object to any of those names unlike those oversensitive Injuns.

    Well, many Native Americans have a problem with it. One was written about in this specific article. And you don't have to care about what he thinks. In fact, I don't "care" about what he, specifically, thinks because I don't know him. Moreover, I don't think that anyone should "accommodate" demands or requests just because the the person making them objects. However, I am in favor of critical thought and considering marginalized perspectives. Unfortunately, most of the criticism directed at the man from the article - including yours - is severely lacking in both.

    Very interesting. Go after corporate sponsors.
    that isn't going to hurt fedex in any way.

    people need to just get over it. so sick of hearing about it.
    the owner isn't going to change the name any time soon.

    I remember when I used to devote time to responding thoughtfully to posts like this. Then, I realized that education is like sobriety, you have to want it before you can get it. Whether you're trolling or not, you don't want it so I won't waste my time.

    Because you can't. You have your opinion and that's fine, I have my opinion and that's fine, you can do nothing to prove your opinion correct and do nothing, other than react emotionally, to show that mine is wrong. Hence, you simply choose to run. Don't worry, it's expected.

    you actually need me to explain to you that native American culture is more than "dancing around campfires?"

    you know what? i give less of a **** about what you think than i do about sportsball.

    Then don't bother posting about it. Some people do care.
