Injuns!

redskin

Above is the official Cleveland REDSKIN team logo.

In no way does it appear disrespectful to a proud heritage of third Stone Age peoples found on these shores when the Eurotrash first appeared on the scene 521 years ago.  (Columbus – or longer?  Vikings?)

Nor does the moniker REDSKIN, which while slangy to me, is no different from Black, which seems to be one of the other accepted terms (at least this week).

I love how there were probably six people nationwide who were bothered by REDSKIN, until some politicians decided to make it their cause celebre’.  Probably because any other issue – immigration, tax reform, privacy, budgets, national security, the military, wars, debt ceilings, government slimdown ad infinitum, ad nauseum were being ignored by said politicians.  They had to hang their hat on SOMETHING!

I wonder if all the previously-conquered peoples of the World – you know, the ones who were outright slaughtered unless they assimilated into the victor’s culture, are even around to complain about the names of sports teams named after them?  I suspect most of them are not, or are wise enough to pick and choose their battles if they are.

We certainly didn’t do right by the American Indian*, and ‘awarding’ them crap land and special separate citizen status with their own ‘nations’ is part of that.  Didn’t Separate, But Equal fall by the wayside some 117 years ago? (Plessy vs. Fergusson)

Along with the top-flight federal government health care they receive.  Wait!  What? They don’t?

Perhaps there’s yet another lesson in that?

*NOT Native American.  Hell, I was born here, I’M a Native American!  I side with Russell Means (now deceased leader of the American Indian Movement and libertarian), who said, I’m an American Indian.  You’ll note American is listed first!”

  1. If they want to change it, I’d propose the Washington foreskins… MUCH more appropriate considering the proximity to the Capital, just sayin…

  2. +1 NFO. And drop the offensive name, “Washington”.

  3. We solved that problem, to our own satisfaction, up here. “Native Alaskans” are those who were born here. “Alaska Natives” refers to the indigenous tribes that were here before Euro/Asian explorers came around.

    Plus, what NFO & WSF said. :)

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune

“F**k Civility. Hyperbole, passion, and metaphor are beautiful parts of rhetoric. The marketplace of ideas cannot be toned down for the insane.” - Penn Jillette
