Just because a bunch of woke, whiny faggity, cancel culture liberals don’t like the name, doesn’t mean it should be changed.
Nah, it's literally a racist name. From 2014:



I remember this issue for at least 15 years now (if not longer). REALLY hope its finally coming to a head this time around.

ps. DC won't allow the Redskins to move back to RFK site unless they change the name. Good stuff.
I agree with Trip. Redskins is a racist name and should be replaced. It isn't a tribal group like Seminoles, Illini, Sioux, etc. that you could argue is the Native American equivalent of European groups like the Vandals, Vikings, Highlanders, etc.

I think it's as simple as this: Would you call a Native American a Redskin to their face?

The NFL has completely bent the knee (pun intended). There’s no WAY the Redskins take the field as the Redskins ever again.

Nah, many problems can be solved at once but some are tougher than others. The abuse of overseas labor is an issue that's being tackled, but that one is a grind and takes time. It also requires a complete overhaul of capitalism (something I doubt you approve of).

Nike's day will come too. And your 401 (and mine) too. Gonna be a radical decade or two. :nod:

From Asia, I don't buy anything not made in Taiwan, Japan, or South Korea.

Started doing that about a year ago. I also try to buy American as much as possible.

Speaking of cancel culture...has anyone signed Kaepernick yet?

I hear the Dixie Chicks are changing their name...
The NFL is changing their name to The CKB - Colin Kaepernick's Bitches


I think they should hire him as CEO and keep Goodell as his assistant to make coffee

So you have no Nike gear? But you support their “social justice’ campaign despite the skeletons in their own closet....which makes you no better than the average NBA player. :dunce: :dunce: :dunce:

Heck, I think someone finally got into Daniel Snyder's ear and let him know that he could make a fortune out of a name change considering the amount of new merchandise that will have to be purchased to replace the old merchandise. Heck, he could go for a two-fer in this climate and pick that Red-Tails name and even get the SJW/BLM buy in for it. These guys, like the NBA folks, follow the money. Ultimately, it's always about the money.

The L'Oreal Group has decided to remove the words white/whitening, fair/fairness, light/lightening from all its skin evening products.

Unilever says it is dropping terms like “whitening,” “lightening” and “fair” from its marketing language to better promote racial inclusivity in the beauty industry.

While I'm at it, I suppose Bachelor of Science is a misogynistic term. What should I put for my undergrad degree?

A bunch of people in media, entertainment, and academia signed a letter condemning cancel culture.

https://www.mediaite.com/news/j-k-rowli ... l-culture/

Naturally, a lot of blue cbeckmarks on Twitter are really livid. One Vox writer Tweeted a letter she wrote to her boss to report Matt Iglesias for it, saying it made her feel "unsafe". This is a letter that Noam Chomsky signed.

Just start calling these people "the alt left".
