Subject: : NFL TEAM NAME CHANGE





Here is an e mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after
an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington
Redskins.


Dear Mr. Page...
I always love your articles. and I generally agree with them.  I would
suggest, as in an email I received, they change the name to the
"Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the
dick heads in Congress.

Here are some other politically correctness to consider: I agree with
our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially
charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name
a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them
as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and
in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move
forward. Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and
the Cleveland Indians.   If your shorts are in a wad because of the
reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get
rid of the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of
militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone.   It's offensive to us
white folk.

The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team
named for the Confederacy?  No!  There is no room for any reference to
that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives.

I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion
among our sports team names.  Totally inappropriate to have the New
Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and
pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the
Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh
Pirates!

Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to
our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or
even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.

The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a
growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children.

The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates . Wrong message to
our children.

The Milwaukee Brewers---well that goes without saying . . . Wrong
message to our children.

So, there you go.   We need to support any legislation that comes out
to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become
involved with this issue, as they should.   Just the kind of thing the
do- nothing congress loves . . .

As a die hard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in
mind, it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon
State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers."

Oh for fucks sake, just change the fucking name you whiny babies. Its a racial slur. Just acknowledge that and change it.

Also, this:

Do you see a team
named for the Confederacy?


Yes, they're called the Ole Miss Rebels and the LSU Tigers, both named after groups of Confederate soldiers.

That's ass-backwards, hillbilly.

See, here's the thing about political correctness: if a name is offensive to a certain group, be it Native-American or Black, then it is within their prerogative to raise an uproar.

If the nickname of a group is offensive to a different group, then that second group is likely just concern trolling. Like that letter you wrote to Page. Try running that by an actual Native-American, and he'd probably knock the taste out of your mouth.

Yes, a team from the South, representing an area which was the heart of the Confederacy, founded by a bunch of old white dudes and owned by a guy who might as well be an honorary Koch brother, is clearly named in honor of the Black Panthers. Makes perfect sense.

The Cleveland Browns were named after their first coach, Paul Brown.

The writer doesn't get it. Calling your team the "Redskins" is no different from calling your team the niggers, wops, kikes, spicks, micks or faggots.

It's a derogatory term. Besides, ownership could make fat bank by changing the name and selling tons of crap to fans like you.

Or are you clowns now opposed to free enterprise and capitalism?

I get it that this ignorant person is trying to make a joke, but his false equivalencies fall flat, especially the ones that make no sense.

I'm not a big sports fan, myself, but even I know that the Cleveland Browns were named after a Coach.

This guy's letter had some potential to make light of a difficult topic, but in typical heavy-handed rightwing fashion, falls flat on the face of it.

Conservatives really should stay far away from humor because they really don't get it. Per usual: rightwing humor FAIL.
