    Offense is irrelevant. Racism is bad for society.

    It's only racism in the eyes of those that see racism everywhere. For the rest of us none nutbags, we're all good with it.

    My "suggestion" is that they change their name to the Stars - then they can argue with Dallas which star looks better on their helmet - the blue star of the Cowboys or the gold star of the Washington team.

    Then again, I'm an Eagles fan.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Anti-Redskins ad airing during NBA Finals[W:125]That's quite enough. The personal comments, baiting and trolling stops now. Stick to the topic, which is not each other. This is a zero-tolerance warning. Thread bans and/or points are possible if there is any more of this nonsense.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I agree that racism is bad for society, but offense is relevant. In the work place it can harm relations with co-workers, result in a harassment or discrimination lawsuit, and discipline or firing for the offender. Outside of the workplace, it can cause the loss of a customer or friend, and can get you beaten up or killed. In fact I challenge those who think it is no big deal to go up to a group of Native Americans and say "How you redskins doing today?"

    You must really hate the fact that you are white. Too bad.

    It doesn't bother me a bit what any sports team call themselves. That is their business, not mine.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Clearly anyone that refuses to equate systemic injustice with name calling hates being white.

    HUSH! I am a lifelong Yankees fan and that ain't gonna happen. Actually, Yankee is a southern term to demean northerners but from what I understand is a simple descriptive used by many Western Europeans and Australians. I think Notre Dame would be the next victim of the PC police though with "Fighting Irish".
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
