    Getty ImagesOpponents of the name of the Washington Redskins will air their message before a large audience of sports fans tonight.
    The Washington Post reports that the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, a tribe based in California, has paid for a 60-second anti-Redskins commercial to run during halftime of tonight’s NBA Finals game. The ad will run in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Sacramento, San Francisco and Washington, and the tribe said it made a “significant investment” to purchase the air time.
    The commercial begins with a long montage of names and labels that Native Americans call themselves, like “proud” and “forgotten,” “Navajo” and “Blackfoot,” “patriot” and “soldier,” “Jim Thorpe” and “Billy Mills.” It ends with the narrator saying, “Native Americans call themselves many things. The one thing they don’t” and then an image of a Redskins helmet.
    A longer version of the ad was posted on YouTube just before the Super Bowl and has been viewed nearly 2 million times.

    This really hasn't made my list of ten thousand and a few political issues or priorities.
    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.

    Is that like gays marrying reducing ones marriage, or gays parading reducing ones manliness?
    I was referring to the commercial that is just some butthurt tribe that needs something else to do.

    If anti-racist commercials really make you so sad, you could get Tivo and skip it. Don't be such a victim!

    Where'd you learn that?
    And how many billion have been spent on the "native American" in the last 10 decades?

    And that excuses racism?

    Or do you object, like others, because you're a VICTIM of evil tribes ruining your TV enjoyment with commercials?

    There is no June 11 NBA finals game but you are free to try to watch it.

    So you're not a victim like Henrin? That poor guy has the whole game ruined when he sees an anti-racism commercial. I hope he gets Tivo and stops suffering so horribly.

    Anyone that gets TIVO to record TV is a real idiot. Yes, annoying commercials filled with cry babies annoy me. I don't however watch the NBA or really much TV at all so this won't affect me.
