Am I a racist if I brought the word "nigger" into this conversation? No I'm not. Why? Because in the context that I am using it (an example) there is no racism context in my usage of the word. In otherwords your "greater context" that you are trying to apply here is nothing more than BS. A way to use the Race Card just to promote your own agenda. When in reality all it does is make people more immune and not give a crap about racial issues because every time you bring up non-valid racism charges people see it for what it is, BS. After awhile they will simply ignore any other calls of racism. And that will hurt your agenda far more than help anyone.
    Using the term nigger while discussing the term is not pejorative. Using 'Redskin' as a team name is, just like the Washington Niggers would be.

    I'll pass your suggestion on, but I think there's a number of things their forefathers accepted that don't sit right any more.

    Redskin was descriptive. Not an insult. Early settlers didn't know what else to call the native American. I guess they could have called the team the Savages.
    I have said the Wahoo logo could be made more respectful, but in the land of the easily offended. I am sure that would not be enough.
    Well, you have my opinion on who gets to make that call.

    So then you're wanting the New York Yankees to change their name too then right? I mean "Yankee" is a slur term used by southerners to describe northerners.

    One cannot be racist against the majority.

    No, one can't. You see, racism is not the same thing as racial bigotry, it's a social construct and can only exist within power dynamics that create or perpetuate systemic injustice.

    You see, a white person being called a Yankee is not a societal threat to white people. There's no accompanying injustice to give the remark any weight. Without the threat of injustice, there's no racism.

    Over 80% of everyone polled has no issue with it, including Native Americans.
