    This is the most ridiculous thing . This political correctness stuff has gone to the extremes , you can't open your mouth these days without wondering if you are offending someone., I am so sick of it. Is KC also going to have to change it's name ? A name is just a name and the people that are offended by it should just go live on another planet. The redskins name is not supposed to be racist , it's a name that was given to a team, that's it . Soon everyone with a name that symbolizes anything remotely of colour will have to change it ! This is really a pet peeve of mine, the sheer stupidity of some minds !

    Lets not forget the Raiders who may have decided to call a section in the new Vegas Stadium The Black Hole but probably won't be allowed to now.

    Leftist privilege is now the most dominant privilege, which as we see is being utilized to shape everything and anything to their choosing. Disagree and you’re racist.

    Are people in this thread really acting like this is some new thing? Since I’ve been a kid in the 90’s it’s been a controversial name and it’s gets brought up every few years. Hell for years now several columnists won’t even use the name Redskins on their website and there’s been many calls to change it before today.

    Have you all been living under a rock or something? This isn’t new and it has nothing to do with PC culture unless you’ve all always lived under it.

    White privilege is the privilege to see a team named Redskins and not get why having a sports team that’s based on a racial stereotype of the appearance of race of people might be a problem.

    Imagine how it would go over if a team was called the Darkskins and it was of a black caricature.

    Call them the Foreskins and you’ll piss the Jews off. There’s no winning these days. Everyone is pissed off at something.

    I always thought they should go with the Washington Redtails. Honor the Tuskegee airmen, still get to keep the same number of letters, same 'Red-' sound to begin with. Uniform colors would be fine, too. Find a squad cartoon, redesign it/update it and boom, redesign with little fuss.

    The Patriots have skeletons in their closet too.

    They ran the Native Americans out of New England.

    What's next? The Kansas City Chiefs. They will be the next target amongst the pearl clutching people who love nothing more than telling other people how to live. Also on tap are the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers.

    This is 100% true and the thing that cracks me up is how often we hear people say "society needs to have an honest discussion about race.:

    How are we supposed to have an "honest discussion" when any statement which deviates from political correctness in the slightest leads to the cancel culture trying to ruin your entire life?

    I'm sure people would sure be offended if a team ever called themselves, say, the "Fighting Irish" and had a cartoon caricature of a leprechaun Irishman with his dukes up looking for a fight.

    Oh, wait.....
