A Bad Defense of the Redskins Name

A Bad Defense of the Redskins Name

There are 4 comments on the RiggosRag story from May 3, 2013, titled A Bad Defense of the Redskins Name. In it, RiggosRag reports that:

Yesterday, I wrote that the Washington Redskins should embrace the resolution put forward by the D.C. Council to change its team name to the "Washington Redtails." Redskins is a pejorative term that is archaic, hurtful, and insensitive to an entire class of American people.

Do you have nothing better to do than jump on what you think is a righteous cause. There is NOTHING derogatory inthe way we use the Redskins name. Get a life. HTTREDSKINS

I hate to tell you this but the name was given to Native Americans, BY Native Americans. After being polled, 91% of NA's saw the name as honorable. Ask yourself a question, why would a team owner give his team a racist, degrading name and mascot? This is all brought about by a bunch of "White Indians" and I can provide links to articles posted by Sons of Washington told by Native Americans. This stated in 91, it died down then as it will now.
