Being from Seattle, surrounded by a lot of Native Americans on a semi-daily basis, I would be embarrassed to have anything with "Redskins" printed on it. What do you think?
I am part American Indian (which I prefer) but I did hear of a poll taken - 100% American Indians.
Over 90% thought the name "Redskins" was not offensive and they were just fine with it.
As am I.
Keep the Redskins name!!!!!!!!
Kind of funny that most white people don't like the name and most American Indians appear to be just fine with it.
Did they actually question 100% of the Native Americans, with all sorts of blood lines, in this country or was it some stupid online poll that a bunch of Redskin fans were able to pump up their support for?
I'm part Native American as well, and it is all out racist. Just because some people are fine with something, doesn't mean it isn't wrong.
Also part native here. Upper Skagit tribe. I find it to be offensive because it was meant to be so. The history of the team says all that is needed to be said. The name is racist and has no place in polite society. They should change it if only to remove the stink from their organization.
