    haha. Comedy aside, it is an interesting topic, macro sociologically. I think the micro on it is mostly crap though. I suppose I feel that way about economics as well.

    No,

    No more than the Boston Celtics, or Green Bay Packers.

    Even the thought that some may think it is, is one reason this country is in the condition its in.

    I agree with your sentiment but not the examples...

    ok, to each thier own.

    IMO, sometimes the "correctness" political or otherwise has gotten out of hand. How many years has the team been the Redskins? Was not much of an issue back when they were named.

    Concern that the Redskins team name is racist is as ridiculous as the impression that it's politically incorrect to say black instead of African American.

    Agreed. It is argued that back then it was institutionalized racism and it should be changed... I think that is lame.

    Again, agreed with the sentiment but not the example. I know a black guy that if you call him African American gets angry and thinks it borders on racism. He says he is black. He is an American that happens to be black. Others, you call them black and it is racist. What the **** are we supposed to do? Just cal a person a person I guess.
