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

    So the Redskins calling themselves the Redskins means that Native Americans can't get housing?

    Apathetic regarding the issue and/or the sport, not apathetic regarding polls!

    Racism perpetuates systemic injustice. Ignoring that systemic injustice is required to equate racial bigotry by minorities against whites with racism.

    Racism does, but a football team called the Redskins does not, so therefore it isn't racist.

    So nothing will make you understand that this is a non issue except for those who just cant stand to go through the day and not be offended about something.

    Unless they move the team to another city, it will always be the Washington Redskins.

    The important thing to note is that ignoring systemic injustice is a foundation for much of racist propaganda. Ignoring it allows racists to claim blacks' woes are entirely their own making, and thereby make accusations of inferiority claiming evidence by "fair competition". It also allows them to claim victim status regarding things like AA and black racial bigotry. And it allows them to claim racism by whites is merely name calling.

    Removing the ability for racists to ignore systemic injustice, by refusing to equate racism with racial bigotry, chops a leg off racists. That is why they react so violently and spam the dictionary claiming it proves racism is equal to bigotry. With racism equal to bigotry, the systemic is ignored and they are able to build propaganda.


    I think everyone can understand that if they try.

    True racists do not accept your "systemic injustice" argument. In fact most will burrow further into their beliefs the more you try to change the meaning of what it is they believe.
    This is a losing battle. The bulk of the nation by far does not sympathize with this new cause. Its a false flag cry of racism. No one is a Redskins fan, because we hate the native Indians.

    That reply is woefully insufficient.

    Sure man. Keep thinking that. You are in the vast minority of persons calling for the 'skins to change the name and logo.
    And while I don't agree with what Dan Snyder has done with the team in many respects, keeping the name is paramount to him and its fan base.
    Get used to it. Don't like it that much. Show up in DC and protest the name in the parking lot. Good luck.
