    I think a lot of people are so used to the Redskin name they don't even think of it as a slur because they see it simply as a descriptor of Native Americans or of its heritage and never thought of it as an insult.
    Does it matter what we think?!

    It`s what native Americans think of it that matters!

    As demonstrated repeatedly in this and other Red Skins threads, what the majority of tribal nation members think about the name of this football team is entirely irrelevant for a variety of reasons. I don't happen to agree but there it is.

    Should Oklahoma change its state name, too? Just wondering. You may want to look up what it means.

    Seems pretty clear to me. It also is starting to become clear that you are labeling it as a non parallel because you cant challenge it rationally.
    Don't say chink in the NBA.

    Less than 9% off all polled care one way or the other.

    One guy on a different thread posted a poll in which the majority of 800 asked native Americans do not oppose the name.

    Thing is, there are 6 000 000 native Americans.

    Yes, and you do know there is no such thing as a poll which was conducted of 100% of whatever target group they were studying? When Gallup releases its healthcare polls, do you think they speak to all 300+ Americans? Polls are a social science.
