    These liberal jackasses and their minions really need to move to the eastern bloc. I am so sick of this politically correct bullpoo that means NOTHING except to distract the lemmings from all the real scandals that this administration is perpetrating on the American public. Seriously, the Redskins have been around for 80+ years and NOW you have a problem? Stupid non-nice individuals.

    The same thing happened to the UND "Fighting Sioux" a TINY minority of people pushed useless legal action until their PC action finally won.
    All the local tribes were FINE with the name! Only a few people had a bone to pick.

    I`m offended by the USC Trojans! It`s hateful to my Greek Heritage!!
    And the Chicago Whitesox (racist!) too :-P

    how NDNs did ask in the polls?

    what if it was the "Greedy Jews" or the "Porch Monkeys" would any think that`s okay?

    I think they should just change their mascot to a peanut called redskins and keep the name.

    Here`s a name that should please all parties ...



    And, while we`re at it, when is "Godfather`s Pizza" going to do the right thing and change its name to "Law-Abiding Italians Pizza"?

    Yeah, I see a lot of non-natives here thinking the name`s not offensive. More power to ya, but, guess what? It was native`s who brought the suit to the agency, brought it over ten years ago, have filed and re-filed. So, if you look at the history of the suit, it goes back to...oh, yeah, the Bush years. And even trying to make it about Obama or politics beyond what the Native plaintiffs have asked is pretty scuzzy.

    Here`s the full story, but, heay, why not make it political hackery?

    BTW: Whoever`s been picking the Avatars for the posts has been doing a TERRIFIC job! For quite a while now :-)

    Thanks mysterious person(s)!

    @SmagBoy1: the point is: It`s not illegal, MOST people, regardless of skin colour, LIKE it and this opens the floodgates to similar legal actions across the USA.

    Since when has the Patent Office been responsible for enforcing Political Correctness? Since... never!

    This is so wrong, but I heard a racial slur many years ago regarding Native American that made me chuckle... only because I thought it was clever.

    "Prairie Nig.gers"

    The NCAA forced the Illini to lose their mascot, Chief Illiniwek. The actual Illiniwek tribe is long gone, so there was no one left to offend. It was all done in the name of "political correctness" and gave no consideration to the fact that Chief Illiniwek was the first college football mascot.

    So I say, screw the name change. Enough of this liberal PC sh|t is enough.

    It`s amazing to me that many folks here think that because "a majority" isn`t offended, it shouldn`t be a problem. I wonder how slaves felt about that? If it was just up to popular vote, would we still have them? What about civil rights for women, minorities, LGBTers? It`s amazing to me that you don`t realize that just because it`s not offensive to *you* or that "that`s the way it`s always been" than you don`t think it might be a problem.

    I`m not a Native American and have no dog in the fight, have nothing to win or lose in this. At least I realize that.

    I don`t know one American football team from another, but it seems to me that if the vast majority of native American Indians aren`t offended by it, what right does anybody else have to object?
    It sounds like the professional whingers are getting their way again.
    Just an observation.
    Perhaps some of them are actually proud to have a team named after them?
    Is `Redskin` just a nickname or a major insult?
    I always thought they were proud of it and glad they weren`t `White Devils`?

    Hmm, rename the team the `White Devils`, have a colonial as the logo and wait for the uproar.

    SmagBoy1,

    All of the issues you cite are all issues dealing with a citizens rights. The name of a team just because it is offensive does not infringe upon the rights of anyone, it does not keep you from voting or leading a full and happy life. The perceived slur is not even recognized by most as a slur, so those who did see it as a slur had to educate others about it. They made a problem from NOTHING!

    @OFFLINEX, actually it`s been a problem for years and many, many *have* seen a problem with it. Just that, in the many cases they`ve files (see my previous link in a comment below), they`ve never gotten any traction. Now when they do, they`re called liberal Johnny-come-latelys when, in fact, it`s an issue that dates back for over four decades.

    Same difference. Most Rappers, wouldn`t have a problem with it.
