  1. Subject: WASHINGTON REDSKINS NAME CHANGE! I think all sports fans and most everybody else will get a kick out of this letter written to the Chicago Tribune. No matter which side you are on in the matter of renaming the Washington Redskins, this is funny. This guy is hilarious... This is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins. Dear Mr. Page: I agree with our Native American population. I amhighly jilted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward. Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and theCleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns. The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk. The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives. I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates! Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children. The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promotedowners/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children. The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children. So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves. As a die-hard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers (especially when they play Southern California. Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers??? the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the"Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the Dick Heads in Washington!
  2. If that is true,when you consider their record, they wasted a lot of money.
  3. Like or dislike Cam Newton/Teddy Bridgewater,The Panthers are going to be a completely different team, whether it be good or bad that's to be seen.
  4. I didn't comment but i agree and it goes without saying they were/are indigenous people, inheritors and practitioners of unique cultures and ways of relating to people and the environment. They have for the most part, retained social, cultural, economic and political characteristics that are distinct from those of the dominant societies in which they live.
  5. While you were serving time for shop lifting.
  6. I need to have my DNA checked because according to both my parents,who were born in Western N.C., they had some Cherokee members in their family tree and it showed in my grandparents features. My forefathers were from England and Germany,so i a have mixed bloodline. Regardless of our bloodlines we are all Americans. Doing some research, i discovered the Catawba, Pee Dee, Chicora, Edisto, Santee, Yamassee, and Chicora-Waccamaw tribes are all still present in South Carolina as are many descendants of the Cherokee.
  7. I simply stated the history origin of how the name "Indian" was derived,no more,no less. I suggest you get your tendency to have delusive ideas about what you project others are thinking checked "Buttercup".
  8. That is good that you know that much about your heritage and i feel sure you are proud of it, rightly so. Activities such as creating family trees and recording family stories build multigenerational bonds and understanding. These are two things that are often lacking in today’s world. There are so many different ways to get started on your family’s narrative, including DNA ancestry testing.
  9. You are as crazy as a Loon. I simply gave the factual origin of the name "Indian" and you read enough into that statement to rudely insult me and brand as being some kind of a menace to my future grandkids. Fellow, you need some serious couch time..
  10. "And that helps your case, why?" First off i have no case, just stating facts. Second,if the name "Indian'" associated with "Native Americans", bothers you so much,why don't you start a movement to have it changed.
  11. The word Indian came to be used because Christopher Columbus repeatedly expressed the mistaken belief that he had reached the shores of South Asia. Convinced he was correct, Columbus fostered the use of the term Indios (originally, “person from the Indus valley”) to refer to the peoples of the so-called New World.
  12. The Washington Warriors: I think this name accomplish's something important for Snyder; something he is no doubt worried about during this process. By leaning into an excessively American theme, with the ability to name-check the military, drape a new set of uniforms in red, white and blue, and repurpose the American flag for design purposes, he heads off criticism from the people who will be most indignant and vocal about the change.
