When I think of the Redskins, I harken back to this.

If you ever have 20 minutes ( don’t we all nowadays?) give it a read.

If the Redskins do change their name to Red Wolves and, at some later date, a long-time Washington player is traded to the Rams, would he become a wolf in sheep's clothing?

I know the Browns were named after Paul Brown. And the original mascot was an elf. But will they be the next to be targeted? Once the snowball starts getting that downhill momentum it can be hard to stop.

Buffalo Bill Cody's reputation is that he killed thousands of Buffalo that the Natives relied on for their food and clothing. Some would categorize his existence as an example of our racist past against the Natives. Will the Bills be on the list?

What about the 49ers? The original miners during the gold rush were involved with the help of California to commit atrocities against the native indians. https://www.history.com/news/california ... n-genocide

We've seen the destruction of monuments and statues evolve from racist civil war symbols to others who were not considered racist before. Perhaps because they ran out of the racist ones to tear down? Will the mob mentality we've been seeing with that reach into the NFL?

Or is the Redskins the only one because that name is a direct slur on Native Americans. The others are symbols rather than direct slurs. But we've seen symbols come crashing down during this new enlightenment revolution. All it takes is the right Twitter or Instagram comments to get the ball rolling. Time will tell.

And they used slave labor.

I'm in favor of anything that messes with the Whiners. :twisted2:

But for some reason that I can't figure out why ... why I feel genuinely respected when people call me by the pseudonym I give them.


Times change and I will call anyone whatever they want. But I always start with it more formal. They can tell me what they prefer.
I actually have an odd time now as all my kids friends call all adults (save for their teachers) by their first names. I always felt this was off putting to me but my kids started getting singled out for using Mr. and Mrs. and I don't want them any more issues in life than they already have. So we came up with a compromise (which I hear more and more people using) is calling people Mr. First name. So my good friend when he comes over is referred to Mr. Tim by my kids. It keeps things respectful but also casual.
To tie into this threads topic, same goes with racial description. Not that I address people by that but if someone wants to be called brown, fine, Ill call them brown. If another wants Hispanic, Ill refer to them as that. But what we often forget is each group of people have as many different opinions as the next. Almost no group will ever totally agree on anything. So like much of life, I at least attempt to take things person by person.

Definition of fascism:

1) often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

2) a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control
early instances of army fascism and brutality

Looks like BLM and ironically ANTIFA to me.

So... :roll2: :roll2: :roll2: .........right back atcha.


If those definitions read anywhere close to the BLM movement to you, we sure as hell aren't reading/watching the same news source. I guess joke's on me ultimately for debating with such lost causes of people on an internet forum to start with though. Oh well, at least some of us will live and learn I guess. :roll2:

You don't see that BLM is a movement that puts race above the individual? That it is proposing severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition?

May not meet EVERY aspect of fascism but it's in the ballpark.
