The New England Patriots are next on the list.

Liberals feel left out, and want the name changed.

Ok. So what?
So it shouldn't be legislated. It is not anyone else's responsibility to ensure that you are not offended.

Like beauty, it is in the eye (or ear) of the beholder.

Two people can see or hear the same thing and one be offended and the other not. That means it's not the thing that is offensive, but the beholder choosing to be offended.

I bet Redskins jerseys set record sales, and I hope the ownership refuses to pay taxes on the income claiming they are utilizing the funds to sue the Federal Government for 1st amendment rights violations.

At least your tax advice is consistent.

So you are good with the Little Rock Rednecks then? Excellent. The Federal government didn't say that the Washington team can't keep its racist nickname, it just said it couldn't enjoy trademark protection.
Really? Rednecks? Sure why not, I really could not care less.

They approved the Redskin Trademark for protection in 1967 and again in 1990.
Canceling the Trademark will a chilling effect on our First Amendment rights to free speech.

The Washington football team remains free to call itself the Redskins. It simply can't stop other people from marketing items that use that name and logo.

Ice-T can record and perform the anti-white "Cop Killer", but he can't collect royalties on it.

Right, I read the article, I got that. It will be appealed, it happened before, and they couldn't make it stick. So if it were to stick this time, then that helps the three who were offended if there is a proliferation of the logo?

"Cop Killer" is anti-white? How so? Royalties from copyright and trademark are different things.

Let's suppose you are the parent of a five year old girl and a young punk approaches you both in a public setting, or even better yet, in your own home at a family function fueled with alcohol, and begins to unload a sexually obscene proposition for several minutes towards your child?

You think you might be a bit offended?

The Black Panthers, and their degenerate descendants known as "gangsta rap" hated the police because they were white.

Do you really think it's that simple? Why didn't Ice T write "Firefighter Killer"?

For the most part, yes; black leftists generally stop complaining about "police brutality" when affirmative action gets enough "brothas" in. The Detroit police implemented the same stop-and-frisk policies formerly used in NYC. No complaints.

FWIW, the firemen were shot at during the 1992 LA riots. Again, because they were mostly white.

In my own home I can simply tell him to leave, and if he doesn't, he is arrested for trespassing, not cursing. Several "anti-cursing" ordinances have been struck down you know.
