    This is the same, "in yer face", stupidity as totin' rifles in a shopping mall to protest anti-gun laws.

    The funny thing about that commercial is that "Redskin" was the the term used by native Americans to describe themselves, in the same way they called Europeans "white man".

    So the commercial is really just lying to you.

    Where in the history of that team can you tell me that "Redskins" was ever meant to be racist?

    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.


    For more go the changethemascot.org
    When they change all the other teams with Indian names, then I'll give a **** about this stupidity.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Honestly there are alot more important things to worry about.
    Save yourself the effort, Eco is a racist victim pusher, you'll only go in semantic circles discussing the subject with him.

    Where is that disconnect, anyone? I'm guessing no consideration of social. Probably defines racism individually, equating it with bigotry.

    Re: Tonighjt June 11 Watch The NBA Half Time For A Redskins Protest of Racism

    I wonder how white people would feel if the U.S. was dominated by Native Americans who conquered them a few hundred years ago and had team names like the "Alabama Pasties", "North Carolina Crackers", "Mississippi White Trash".

    I used to live near a major reservation and knew many natives very well as I worked and drank with them after work. They largely feel humiliated and have quite a bit of resentment. Their reservations are horridly poor, alcoholism runs rampant, assault, rape, its terrible. They are a very defeated people overall and so little things can cut pretty hard.

    Most of them have not adapted to western life very well, so if a lot of them feel upset about this I understand. If they want the name changed then so be it.

    And socially the Redskins in this context has no racism attached to it. If it did then you would have been able to point it out instead of trying to avoid my question. The only ones trying to attach racism to it are those that go around a LOOK for something to be offended about. Usually those people are ignorant as to the historical context of said word in said environment.

    Like it or not, not all slur words are used in a slur context. Whenever such crap such as what is being talked about in this thread I can't help but think of this...

    False, greater context. Like a black person being unable to escape racial injustice and a white can, the term cannot escape injustice inhereted from the higher context (in the case of racism, societal).

    And a youtube video? Good day.

    Really? How about the Redskins change their name to the Washington Negroes, with emblems of Aunt Jemima on their helmets? You wouldn't think that's racist either? Because it's the same damn thing.
