It's funny, as the world propels itself towards more and more conflicts, the gap between richer and poorer here and everywhere else, fuel shortages to come, millions starving to death, slavery and exploitation rife in parts of the world - what do people shit the bed about?

Names of sports teams.

The absurdity and naivete of the political correctness generation astonishes me, egged on by govts and elites and the rich and powerful all the way i'll add, to ignore real issues and to make themselves feel better and sniff their own farts with their 'look at me i'm a caring human being' self-aggrandizing bs.

This is nothing to do with native americans it is to do with guilt riddled (all self inflicted) feeling good about themselves.

Do they give a flying fuck about starving africans and the rape of their continent over hundreds of years? nope.

But they're all butt hurt to hell over the Washington Redskins. It;'s all about THEM. Govt's etc laugh their asses off and these fools.

And i'm a left leaning liberal.

I'd like to see these feel-good PC nutjobs actually go on reservations and, I dunno, help their real problems.

Oh wait, that's right, these politicians don't really give a fuck about native americans, let alone the rest of us.

Cannot resist throwing this chum into the water



U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder joined the chorus in condemning the Washington Redskins' nickname, calling it offensive and saying it should be changed.

Holder, speaking on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, went one step further than his boss, President Barack Obama, who said in October that the Redskins should consider changing the name. Holder left no doubt where he stood.

"I'm going to speak very personally now," Holder said when asked the question. "The name ought to be changed. It's an offensive name. The Redskins, that organization is a great one. It's a team with a storied history that has huge amounts of support in Washington, D.C., and in the 21st century they could increase their fan base, increase their level of support, if they did something that from my perspective that is so obviously right."

So I guess that pretty much resolves who is right

Tribe refuses money from Washington foundation as “bribe money”

It’s a story that has been percolating for a few days. Now that the Associated Press has picked it up, the latest P.R. embarrassment regarding the Washington team name has become official.

A Native American tribe on the Arizona-California border trying to raise $250,000 for a skate park has refused funding from the Original Americans Foundation, a group started earlier this year by owner Daniel Snyder in response to ongoing opposition to a name regarded by many as a slur.

“No, we’re not going to accept any kind of monetary offer to side with allowing them to utilize the inappropriate name for this NFL team,” Quechan tribal President Keeny Escalanti Sr. told the AP.

“The sacrifice we took to say no wasn’t an easy one. We wish we could help the kids today by taking the partnership. We’re trying to teach our community and the youth that we can do things the right way. We don’t have to accept this type of money from these people.”

Previously, the Arizona Republic explained that the tribe turned down a “blank check” from the foundation at a meeting attended by Original Americans Foundation executive director Gary Edwards and director Karl Schreiber.

“He said he was a proud Redskin and had been a proud Redskin since he was a child,” Escalanti told the Republic regarding Edwards. And it got even more uncomfortable than that.

“Edwards just brought up key words that you just don’t bring up in Indian country, like assimilation, annihilation,” Escalanti said. “And he tried to talk down about White people, saying they’re the oppressor. . . . I don’t know what he thought he was doing in talking like that to us — impress us? Like he thought he could talk like that among his ­fellow Natives? It was so awkward.”

Thus, the tribe rejected an offer to pay for the entire park, issuing the following statement to the Republic: “We will not align ourselves with an organization to ­simply become a statistic in their fight for name acceptance in ­Native communities. . . . We know bribe money when we see it.”

The debate regarding the name has simmered in recent weeks, with most of the news coming from failed efforts by the team to defend it. While the controversy has reached a stage where it’s likely to not go away until the name changes, there wouldn’t be as much to say about the situation if the team can manage to stay out of its own way for a week or two.
