Alternative name for the Redskins

How is calling Native Americans "Redskins" any more racist than calling someone white or black? Obviously their skin isnt red. Nor is anyones skin literally white or black.

Their logo and name represent Native American pride. Anyone who complains about the name is an uptight whiner. Go find more important things to worry about.

Even the Cleveland Indians logo is just for fun. A cartoony white guy would be fine, but a cartoony native american guy is racist?

The previous owner of the Skins before Snyder once famously said "This team will always be called the Washington Redskins, even if i have to put a red potato on the helmets."

Washington Native Americas with a disclaimer We sincerely apologize to any and all persons our groups of people who are offended by our team name. We strive to kiss our fans asses especially the ones who are babies and look for something to b***h about.

I think if the lettering is small enough it would fit on a helmet.

I wonder if anyone would complain if the completely changed and went with the Washington Honkeys. Personally I think that would be great.

maybe if they would be called the Washington Ni**ers it would be more clear to you.

The name "redskin" was used as a curse word to describe the indians, the same goes with the word "N**er" used by slave owners and others.

Make another thread if you want to discuss that. I clearly said in my first post to make name suggestions only, please
