    yes it is a slur just like redneck... because of the prejudice ignorant white people who started the name and what it stood for back in the days when Indians were hated..but most people think different about it today...but the Indians still have wounds from the use of the word and what it meant in the past..and no one today seems to care what the indians think about how it hurt them I can tell by the pollIs Redskin a slur? [W:282]-indian-jpg

    they have just as much right not to have anyone use that name like gays don't like fag or dyke or blacks don't like the n word or jews don't like the words people call them so it is fair to have that name cut from use..the Indians are still upset with the way they were treated they should be proud to have out military helicopters named after them (apache.cherokee,kiowa) but they want those names taken off of our birds

    Yes, it's a slur. Just change the name to Washington Warriors and be done with it.

    A world where I am allowed to contemplate how those people must feel when the name is taken lightly.

    The name causes me no harm.

    And realistically....kind of a weird name for a team.

    ...and a world where the franchise should be legally allowed to use the term?

    It's an assault on the 1st amendment.

    Why do dumbocrats always attack our civil rights?

    Depends on whether the person using the term uses it as one.


    It is absolutely not a slur when used as the name of a sports team.

    If it's not intended as a slur, sure.

    Trouble with that word is that it has acquired so much in the way of assumed negativity that you cannot use it in any form of media without nearly everyone who sees/hears it assuming you meant it negatively.


    Edit: Far too many words have that assumed negativity these days.

    Actual men? What are you? An asshole behind a keyboard with a big mouth. Why don't you go to a reservation and start tossing "redskin" around and see what actual men will do to you. It was always a slur, the team name should never have been Redskin and now that people have finally started to come to this realization it is time to change it.
