RedskinsIf Obama owned the Washington Redskins team, he would consider changing the name.

“If I were the owner of the team and I knew that the name of my team, even if they’ve had a storied history, that was offending a sizable group of people, I’d think about changing it,” Obama said.

Welcome to the NFL the “New Black Panthers!”

Not long ago I wrote about how Liberals stirred up the Indians in America (I happen to be part Indian myself), by telling them that it is an insult to be called Indian. Ironic, given that the 1B+ Indians in India seem comfortable with the racial slur.

But because cocktail-sipping, know-it-alls have Indians in a tizzy, everyone is supposed to refer to Indians as “native Americans.”

Prior to this “white Liberal guilt” annoyance, Americans paid tribute to Indians by naming our stuff after them. Sports teams, cars, and a host of other things. It was a show of respect.

Despite conquering the Indians, Americans understood that the Indians are AMAZING. We might have beaten them, but boy did we learn a lot from them. They went down swinging, and didn’t call their lawyers. And because of the warrior spirit of the Indians, we celebrate their cultures.

Leave it to Liberals to make something beautiful into something demeaning.

Sort of like what Obama and his ilk have done to the American Spirit.

    You can call me Indian or Shawnee or Miami or American but don’t call me a squaw…that is offensive. Native American has too many syllables.

      What do you think about redskin?

      • wishladya

        I don’t find “Redskins” an offensive term. I went to U of Illinois and I loved Chief Illiniwek, even the cartoon character one. I believe anyone who has European ancestors who came prior to 1800 probably has some Indian blood. Hazel eyes? Probably an Indian Euro mixture. Our parents and grandparents were taught to never talk about our Indian heritage. Whole small towns in Indiana were actually Indian villages. They passed for white. My Grandmother told of her Great Aunts “hiding in the swamp” to avoid relocation.

          Thank you for the reply. I found it interesting. I was told my grandmother was of the Omaha tribe. After extensive research – found out that wasn’t correct. I was/am SO disappointed.

    New Black Panthers? Not so much, how about naming them after him, the Barack Pansies?

  • alvin691

    Or call them the Muslim Brotherhood. He will automatically invite them into the white house, regardless if they win the superbowl.

    I think most Americans are part American Indian. I’m about 1/16th Cherokee, even if I look more like my father’s Irish and Scottish ancestors.

    I, too, think that naming a sports team after something means that you think the something is fast, strong, brave, with a fighting spirit. It’s not an insult to be have a football team named after you. Heck, I’d be thrilled if they became the Washington Bevs, but I’m pretty sure that ain’t happening anytime soon.

    Why does this clown think he should express his opinion about everything under the sun?! He is a narcissistic megalomaniac!

    • Starcitygal

      And petty, and vindictive . . .

    • rcfrt

      He doesn’t have anything to do with the shutdown and all. Except maybe play some golf. For some reason, the golf course is still open.

    • wishladya

      I was going to ask who the clown was until you said narcissistic megalomaniac and that pretty much nailed the identity for me. Big Government needs to stay out of our business. If you’re Indian it probably is a good idea to operate beneath the radar anyhow, just like the Fathers did. Creator is looking out for us. Count on it! But yowie the price of ‘bacco lately! Makes the pipe a bit pricey, and I sprinkle it around my property as a gift to Creator regularly. If we called it a religious item it would probably be taxed double.

  • Starcitygal

    I have an idea – let’s wipe every vestige of Indian (oops, ‘cuse me Native American) reference from our cultural landscape. Hell, obama wants to start an ethnic cleansing via HHS. Renaming the innocuous name Redskins is a just a disguised volley in effort.

    How bout renaming them the Washington Thinskins………or how bout the Washington Morons………..(these suggestions most certainly DO NOT have any bearing the team members themselves….simply a reflection of the unfortunate fact that they are based out of DC.)
