Default Re: Redskins name change?

I like this article. Remember, according to NBC 90% of Natives do not mind the Redskins name.

If they were the Savages or Scalpers I would understand those who are offended, but Redskins was a term USED BY NATIVES to refer to themselves, or by whites the same way you would just say "Blacks" or "Whites". Redskins is NOT a racist term. Is Black offensive? Is white? It's as offensive as "Chiefs". Would the New Orleans Cajuns be offensive? Would the Mexico Aztecs be offensive?

Go Steelers, but I am not afraid to support my hometown and say Hail to the Redskins.
