    Where did this rule come from?
    We live in a society where one should be defined by their accomplishment, by their actions, by their character and not by the color of their skin.

    That may be but that has nothing to do with a team name.

    Why is skin color more important than any other physical trait someone has?

    Because it has been used to enslave people for it and to deprive them of the same legal rights that others have in this nation and because of that it is a different trait altogether because of its consequences and our sensitivity to it.

    "PC" is irrelevant (and another red herring). I'm only interested in what Native Americans think.

    Opinions on what Native Americans thought about "The Redskins" being used would have been considerably less valued a hundred years ago than even today, so "tradition" is irrelevant.
