    You're white? Because that kinda determines if it matters to someone personally, 99% of the time.


    If so, racism can't touch one personally. But it damages society. Consider it from that perspective, instead of just ones own immunity to systemic injustice, and you'll see why it's a problem for others and society, even if not for one directly and personally.

    .... Only... nobody is in any danger, nobody is calling the police because of it, and it's a legitimate form of protest that doesn't infringe on private property laws. But yeah... other than all the things that make them different, they're the same.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

I suppose a liot of them see the REAL problems their people face and are more concerned about THOSE issues other than a sports team and mascot.
    At that point, Illinois should change it's name too, it is after all named for the Illinois Indian tribe, Montauk New York must change, Baton Rouge on a technicality because the French named it so after seeing a red stick which the natives used to denote a territorial marker(Baton(stick) Rouge(red)). In fact, Saginaw Michigan and the steering parts they manufacture would have to go, as would Milwuakee Wisconsin. Hell, I like this idea, take it to the absolute extreme to show just how silly this crap really is.

    Then the Yankees can stop playing games south of the Mason Dixon line.

    That depresses me, Pontiac was a great car and I forgot about that to include but yeah, a LOT of cities and their products in Michigan are named from the various Indian tribes around the Great Lakes Area. I would love to see what Pontiac could have done with some modern versions of their old classics.

    May as well cut Florida off the US map. Hell most of our cities and counties have Indian names.
    Hey, that sounds like a great idea. Let yall fight it out and leave us alone.

    The Washington Redskins have been around since 1932 when first playing in Boston. The Atlanta Braves were first the Boston Braves beginning in 1870, then on to Milwaukee and finally Atlanta. The Cleveland Indians have been around since 1901 and not a single person has gone hungry or died because these three team were named after American Indians.

    I don't consider it any of my business what a private organization or team calls themselves. This is America, if you don't like their nickname, then don't go to their games. Before the Braves arrived in Atlanta we had a minor league team called the Atlanta Crackers, no problem there. Then to top it off since we also had a Negro league team, they were known as the Atlanta Black Crackers.
    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.

    You can't do that, I think we have more Yankees now living in Georgia than what is left in New York.
