CA ass-embly joins the movement against redskins name.... 


These guys should stick to solving the issues in CA.Instead of telling schools how many practices to take or tell teams from other states what names to use. There aren't any redskins native americans in CA anyways!!!!.

Don't you think these social issues are going too far?

You don't have to convince me tiger. The worlds on fire and this is what our government needs to worry about? Really? I don't know what to say. Very surreal.

I'm supporting the Indians cause, remove a mascot that uses an ethnic groups' skin color . . . Braves, Warriors and Apaches are fine with me, Redskins is derogitory and inflammatory to American Indians . . .

That logo has been there for ages!!! I never heard of this political correctness from the native Americans or anyone until Obama. RIDICULOUS!!! Besides, what gives to Cal assembly to try to impose their liberal views on other states....

Funny thing Tiger951 . . . I'm with you at age 25 . . . But at 58, I cry at most movies I watch, and over the years, I've developed a sensitivity and passion that leans toward supporting certain causes, and the term "Redskins" is offensive.

Just like to point out 4 things. . .

"We are very proud of our athletic teams and very proud to be called RESSKINS!" These are the words of Coshocton High School athletic director George Hemming, who serves as the athletic director for just one of the 70 different High Schools in 25 states who are known as the REDSKINS.

Red Mesa High School is located in Red Mesa, Arizona. The school is located on the NAVAJO RESERVATION and is a public school. They have nearly 100% NAVAJO students. AND their name. . . YOU GUESSED IT . . "THE REDSKINS"

And a list of schools that use the name . . ."REDSKINS"
www.maxpreps.com/search/school...l_name=Redskins

The Indian's "cause" is less than 10%

Just sayN

Great point! We have so many tribes in and around Riverside County and I don't see any of them going crazy over this or starting riots. Take chill pill and some Metamucil Diablo!! :)

I prefer redskin potatoes with my breakfast. OOPS!

Who represents the potato? cause this is just wrong and its been going on too long !!

And why do I have to identify myself as "white" when I fill out every form Ive ever filled out. Should I be offended?

Better things to be concerned about. In fact thats my last post on the subject. : )

I think that all people of Irish descent in this country should make Notre Dame change their mascot. The notion that Irishmen are mentally and emotionally incapable of settling their differences without resulting to violence is reprehensible. I am very offended every time I see that little red headed leprechaun with his fists balled up. It makes me so mad I just want to fight!

Oops.

I'm reading the posts, and I'm trying to wrap my arms around this Redskins name to be at peace with the Washington logo . . . Irish Coffee, Italian Ice, Indian Chief, etc. . I get it. But can we use skin color (red, black, brown, yellow) from ethnic groups in propping up mascots and promoting team identity . . . Help me on this one?

If Jerry Jones were the Redskins owner, he'd jump at the chance to change the name and sell a bunch of stuff with the new name on it.

Diablos . . . it’s not a red, black, brown, yellow issue – it’s a POWER issue. And it’s not just ethnic.

Not to be blunt about it – I say to the few “get over it”.

I remember Italian jokes, Redneck jokes, southern/northern jokes and even Polish ones . . . and a lot of white ones too – that when told - a few got their feelNs hurt.

For example - remember the one about the white guy……………..never mind I can’t tell it anymore.

Just because one is offended by something, does not mean it’s wrong, or that I must feel the same way.

When I go to a Renegade football game, I’m not thinking “137 years ago, they were the ones that raped and pillaged for a living”. Or that the Washington Redskins were the ones that killed Custer (just the Dallas Cowboys a "VERY" few times -I'm sorry - my bad). Should we change Redmen to Red Squirrels?

It has now become a sport in and of itself – A few trying to force privately owned originations to comply to their wishes, because their feelings are hurt. And Colleges too.

Remember Sambo’s Restaurant? The name came from its owners “SAM” Battistone and “BO” Bohnett. The restaurant did borrow characters for the book – Little Black Sambo – but even after doing away with the characters . . . because of a few - the restaurant was forced to change the name - and then went out of business.

Remember the Frito Bandito? It was a fun character for advertizing – because of a few – GONE

This slippery slope is fraught with peril.

JUST WHEN IS TO FAR. . . TOO FAR?

Utah’s Corner Canyon High School had to do away with its team name “Cougars.” The term, which, in some circles has come to mean an older woman sexually interested in younger men, was the subject of a few complaints. They are now the “The Chargers.” Does that mean a change isa comN for COC?

When I got called names as a kid (and I still do), mom would always make me repeat a few times,“Sticks and Stones” . . . . I think we all know the rest of it!

I guess that means you can color me insensitive.

Just sayN

Ps Is the Goat Kingdom upset that we humans call our youngN Kids?

Great post bcfan . . . Time for me to stand on the sidelines for this debate . . . I'll continue to follow this dilemma and NFL pending resolution . . . Gotta love JJ, his solution from a business standpoint makes it a win-win situation for appeasing the offended and lining the pockets of the aristocrats . . .

And for some reason that "cougar" analogy brought me back to thinking about BC? Go figure . . .
