  • WaPo poll finds 90% of Native Americans NOT offended by Washington Redskins name

    Another "make believe wrong" fabricated out of thin air.

    Just like the men in women's restrooms and 32 Oz sodas, etc.

    I'm not offended.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      Breaking News:
      Due to the embarrassment of Washington with the corruption, incompetence, cronyism and lewd behavior of its leaders. Washingtons (real) cruel treatment of Native Americans and wholesale slaughter of innocents, breaking of treaties and land grabs. The Washington Redskins will now be known as the Maryland Redskins and are glad to be rid of the stench and stigma that permeats the Washington name.

        Better DC than Maryland.

          PC'ism bites the dust...yet again.

          I wonder what Indians would name their baseball teams?

              I remember when the two Indian organizations that were protesting the Redskins turned out to be both one-man organizations........with the same man.

                ... of the Grand River" Reserve field several Lacrosse teams in area leagues.

                The "Six Nations Chiefs" Senior "A" lacrosse team play in the Major Series Lacrosse of the Ontario Lacrosse Association, the "Six Nations Slash" and "Six Nations Rivermen" play in Senior "B" leagues. The "Six Nations Arrows" play in Junior "A" league, and the "Six Nations Rebels" in a Junior "B" league.

                Other Iroquoian First Nations Senior "B" teams have names such as the Caughnawaga Indians, Akwesasne Thunder, Tuscarora Thunderhawk, Onondaga Redhawks, and St. Regis Braves.

                Interestingly, the Iroquois have been granted their own "National" team that competes in the World Lacrosse Championships (WLC) as the "Iroquois Nationals". They missed the 2010 WLC played in Manchester, UK; the British Gov't refused to recognize their "Iroquois Confederacy Passports" - ooops!

                  The Fighting Whites (alternatively identified as Fightin' Whites, Fighting Whities, or Fightin' Whities) were an intramural basketball team formed at the University of Northern Colorado in 2002 and named in response to the Native American mascot controversy.[1]

                  The intramural college team briefly attracted a storm of national attention because of its satirical protest about stereotypes of Native Americans being used as sports mascots, particularly the "Fightin' Reds" of Eaton High School in Eaton, Colorado, not far from the university in Greeley. The Reds' mascot has been described as "a caricature Indian with a misshapen nose, [wearing] a loincloth and eagle feather".[2]

                  The intramural team, which included players of Native American, white, and Latino ancestry,[3][4] adopted the name "Fighting Whites", with an accompanying logo of a stereotypical "white man" in a suit,[5] styled after advertising art of the 1950s, as their team mascot. The character has been described as a man from the Ozzie Nelson era[6] or a "Father Knows Best white American male".[7]

                  At first, the team's T-shirts used "Fightin' Whites" as the name of the team, but various media reports referred to the team as the "Whities" instead of "Whites".[8] The plan to insult whites in the same way the minority students perceived Native Americans being insulted[citation needed] backfired on the group when the team's popularity skyrocketed. In response to customer demand, the team eventually began selling shirts under both names. The team added the phrase "Fighting the use of Native American stereotypes" to its merchandise to discourage the shirts from being worn by white supremacists, and arranged for CafePress.com to handle manufacturing and sales of the clothing.[9]

                  The team sold enough shirts that they were eventually able to endow a sizeable scholarship fund for Native American students at Northern Colorado. In 2003, the team donated $100,000 to the University of Northern Colorado's UNC Foundation, which included $79,000 designated for the "Fightin' Whites Minority Scholarship".[10]

                      Yeah, I think they got season tickets out of it.

                          We mostly see the Little Big Horn as a strategic disaster. A lot of tribes were mourning as they left the battlefield.

                          That was the final straw. After that, the only good one was a dead one.

                          Even that ######### Sitting Bull realized it.

                            Believe it or not much of this BS is started by WHITE liberals going through the white guilt syndrome. You will find them carrying the ball and leading the way for abolishing the Confederate flag, black lives matter, and a whole number of other trumped up issues with little to no significance. Best that people ignore their rants because they are just attention ****** trying to start trouble.

                              So true...trick is to figure out which one you're dealing with.

                              Although historically Colorado was hunting destination for peoples of six Amerind nations, the local natives here were the Utes, who have never objected to roads and passes and such being given almost unpronouncable Ute names.

                              I find it ironic that Amerinds, so determined to keep their respective cultures alive, object to all efforts by anyone to do as well. Makes me doubt their sincerity and suspect commercialism, since casinos were never part of the Amerind culture.
