The Blackfoot tribe was worse than the Comanche

Bunch of killers we should have enlisted them if they hadn’t fled to Canada like Bruce Springsteen

Seems appropriate for a team in DC ...

Washington Football Team it is. At least for this season. Probably figured it takes a while to do everything associated with branding, etc. right so no point in rushing it. And that way, new season's worth of merchandise with Washington Football Team on it for extra money this year and next.

I thought a team name was supposed to have some significance to what you are

I think they still need to earn the title “football team”

Well to be fair, I'd spice it up and change the name to DC Football Team...

...on the account Washington was a slave owner. :nod:

So you choose Columbus instead. Makes sense. :lol:

In other news, I just saw where Antifa isn't happy with the Sierra Club because John Muir was a white supremacist. Will you be burning down national parks next?

It must be exhausting searching out so many enemies.

I'll excuse Columbia since it's the personification of America and while based off Columbus, not Columbus himself.

Future generations can rename the city if they want, although I wouldn't care if people wanted to change the name now. Actually as I think of it, Federal City Football Team sounds great. This could be our mascot:

Then based on that logic, they could go with Washington Tomahawks or Washington Arrows.

With the Arrows, they can wear this helmet:

My parents and I don't talk about religion; it's a sore spot we left behind years ago. I can go into the deep cultural ramifications, but my parents still suffer criticism from the larger Muslim community and their own family for having an openly atheist son. And while I don't care what others think, I do feel horrible for putting my parents - who I genuinely care for - through the suffering.

I can probably write a whole book about the experience.

It was half in jest. I don't really expect you to confront your parents over something like that.

I do wonder why Muhammed and Islam get a pass on the whole slavery thing. Of course I also wonder why LDS is criticized for it's attitudes toward the LGBT community and women but Islam gets a pass there too.

There are a lot more Muslims than Mormons and the members of the former have a limited sense of humor.

Islam tends not to react well to criticisms and reflection. It's easier to tear down statues of dead white guys because there won't be any pushback (not anything substantial - a few pockets of aggrieved white guys circling a statue isn't really a pushback). You start seriously criticizing Islam and Muhammed especially and all of a sudden there's a fatwa and then pushback starts getting real. Path of least resistance means statues and football team nicknames. :coffee:

There's not reacting well, and then there are fatwa's. Islam in its current form has the top spot to itself among contemporary religions. Of course no one likes criticism, but there are different shades of dislike.
