Oh, so now it's everyone? Not a few over sensitive "whiners"? Where did that ninety percent you were talking about go? You may not like me but it doesn't change my arguments. Abandoning the original purpose of the thread because you now admit your opinion doesn't matter is pretty funny.

Oh look, the guy who was calling people "retarded" in another thread. Here to add more substance to the conversation, I see.

10 out of 100 Natives find offense to the name "Redskins." In this day in age, that is more than enough. Still a minority, but the loudest minority.

The few "whiners" you refer to are estimated to be over half a million people, discounting people like me who are not part of the Native American minority. If you walked around my hometown calling native men on the street "redskin" you'd get your ass beat. The anecdote of my classmate fighting over being called the name isn't an isolated incident. Maybe it doesn't happen often but it is something people like him will remember and hurt over for much of their lives. He didn't last at that school for much longer after that. He was a pariah, perpetually anxious and irritable because he knew at any time one of several kids in the class could whip a slew of racist slurs towards him. I see why he is probably in that small minority of "whiners".

The plurality of the word isn't what made it offensive and it is hilariously ironic you're arguing the discrepancy in this particular thread.

While it would be admittedly strange to have a Washington-based football team not be known as the Redskins, in the end they are not my team, and whatever decision the organization makes would not bother me in either case.
