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 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)
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.

This election began like a car wreck; a bad thing, but I couldn't help but look away. It's now more like a beheading video; a sickening display where I can't hit the red X fast enough.
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.
