You guys have had your entire lifetimes to
get ache-y vaginas over the Redskins name... now you jump on the bandwagon like Costas because it's the latest intellectual fad. I hope they leave the name as is if for no other reason than to give you clowns an itch you can't scratch.1

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Chronicle has joined a growing list of publications that will no longer use the term "Redskins" when referring to Washington's NFL team.

Managing Editor Audrey Cooper said Wednesday that the newspaper's style committee decided to eliminate the term because of a long-standing policy against using racial slurs.

"Not everyone has to be personally offended by a word to make it a slur," Cooper said in a statement titled "A name unfit for print."

"Make no mistake," she said, "'redskin' is a patently racist term."

The newspaper's committee decided that though other team names, like the Chiefs and the Warriors, refer to Native Americans, they are not offensive in and of themselves and will continue to be used.

As for "redskins," she said in a telephone interview, "we are in the process of eliminating the use of the term in agate and stories."

The debate about whether the term is in fact an epithet has raged for decades, particularly in sports and media. The Chronicle's style council revisited the issue last month at the request of Scott Ostler, one of its sports columnists, who has written advocating that the team change its name.

The Chronicle joins several other publications that have made the same decision over the years, including the Kansas City Star, Slate.com, and the Portland Oregonian, which dropped the term more than two decades ago. Sportscaster Bob Costas has also spoken out against the use of the word.

Cooper said the Chronicle will simply refer to the team as "Washington" in most cases. It will use the "Redskins" only when not using it would be confusing for readers, such as in a story about the controversy surrounding the term.

"We have a responsibility to set the tone for civil discourse," Cooper said. "That doesn't mean we set the rules, but it does mean we can lead by example."
Snyder is cashing in on all of this publicity for his 2-5 club. :nod:

Hey, more white journalists jumping on the bandwagon.

Sitting Bull is just waiting in heaven for them to show up so he can give them all a noogie for their brave battles on behalf of his people.

BTW the Vandals are another extinct people.... skullfvcked by the Visigoths. I think we need to have a talk with Idaho. The NCAA might yank the GoDaddy bowl from the Sun Belt if they don't get with the program. I think they should change their name to The Taters

If I remember my history correctly the Vandals migrated south to get away from the skullfvcking and eventually ended up in North Africa. The rulers of the Barbary Coast and the Barbary Pirates were of Vandal decent. I'm guessing there is still some Germanic Vandal blood flowing through the veins of many in Libya, Tunisia and Algeria.

The Vandals would likely be embarrassed that a team as bad as Idaho is carrying their name so a switch to Taters or maybe Poh Taters is in order.

And Arab is not offensive...now if they called them the Sand N*****s it could be considered inappropriate.

This is 100% correct.

Arab in no way is racist/offensive though I'm sure there is about to be a giant shit storm over it.


Christians, Jews, blacks, whites, asians, etc... can all be Arab

I didn't read the whole thread, but I suggest keeping the name. Just change the logo to a potato.

That's brilliant. Where did you come up with that clever idea?

And since the Potato is NATIVE to the AMERICAS, it honors the cultural contributions of the natives.
