And that news is so yesterday.
I had no idea I would find Columbus Day so fucking annoying on facebook. I get it, everybody learned that what they teach in grade school isn't the truth.
Makes sense to me. In a nation founded on racial domination, then built on racial submission and racial segregation, and only recently coming to terms with its racist past... in which skin color was the very symbol of oppression (think "WHITES ONLY" signs)... then of COURSE 'Redskins' is an honor.

Indians is bad, but Redskins seems a lot worse to me. That mascot though. sheesh.
As a life-long Cleveland Indians fan, I wrestled with this. I prefer the script "I" or the "C" rather than the Chief Wahoo logo. I decided a long time ago that I wouldn't wear anything with that logo on it because I didn't really feel comfortable with that logo.
Anyway, sorry to slightly derail y'alls Facebook thread.
Facebook is dumb, this is a better topic.
I would also like bug's take on a name like "Fighting Sioux" or "Seminoles".
Native Americans only make up 0.9% of the US population..
instead of "one" centralized voice on Native issues you have 566 different ones...
All this means is that it doesn't take much to drown out the Native voice
"media" reports always said some bullshit about how 70% of all Sioux totally loved the nickname and thought it was an honor.
State politicians used these bullshit numbers to validate a law they passed FORCING the school to keep the nickname.
When an public vote came up to repeal the law, it turned out only something like 24% of Sioux supported it.
math is funny.
And it was only like a year ago some rival college was chanting "scalp them" and shit at games
Stinkbutt is at least partially native too. I've had good talks with him about it (not the subject at hand, but about the culture) in the past. He'd probably have good insight too. I didn't know were as well, Bug.
I didn't mean to imply that all tribes have the same point of view, or that you could speak for all of them, I was just genuinely interested in your personal take on the matter.
historically tribes that lived near army outposts tended to side with all the "indian removal" policies..
these were referred to as Laramie Loafers.
in exchange they got to keep alot of their lands. Where as tribes like the Apache, Sioux, & Ohio valley tribes that fought against the US Army got imprisoned on crap land.
