    But you are butting into conversations to apparently pass judgement and make trouble...which is trolling.

    You are a waste of time and on my Ignore list.

    Btw, Henrin's statement was sincere and I would not have learned that had I not asked.


    Good day.
    You keep saying that I'm a waste of your time and that my opinion means nothing to you, but yet you keep responding to my posts. Methinks you are insincere.

    Actually, yes. Exterminating "the jews" is a great example.

    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?"

    Let us know how it works out.

    If this will end all racism in America, let's change the name.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Probably as well as going up to a group of blacks and saying "Hello, my African American brethren", or "Hi there whitey"....

    Is that part of your normal routine?

    So saying "the jews" is pejorative, now?
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    Pale face is a derogatory term as well. I don't get all wound up about it.

    So far you've responded to my post twice, both times with strawmen that doesn't address what I was actually saying and responding to.

    Just because you've never heard it used in a derogatory fashion doesn't mean it hasn't been at some ponit.

    Just because you wouldn't get wound up about a different derogatory word, or don't think people should get wound up about this being used as derogatory word, doesn't mean that it never has been used as a derogatory word.

    It's quite possible, and intellectually honest, to acknowledge that "Redskin" has been used at some points by some people in a derogatory fashion and still acknowledge it's ONLY meaning or usage is not one that is derogatory in nature.

    Good, it's always been despicable to have this racist genocidal crap being cheered for at the nation's capital. If up to me, i'd demolish their stadium and disband the team. The NFL only gives a damn about marketing. Well, i will never take part in their product so long as this is tolerated.
