´Redskins´ Is RACIST...
It´s Time for a Change

It´s damn time the Washington Redskins changed its racist name ... at least if the team ever plans to move inside D.C. city limits -- so says District mayor Vincent Gray. Now that the Redskins are winning again, there´s been a lot of talk about bringing the team back to D.C. -- instead of leaving them in nearby FedEx Field, located in Maryland. But Mayor Gray has some conditions before the Redskins move a muscle -- claiming, “I think that if they get serious with the team coming back to Washington, there’s no doubt

Comments:

Awesome suggestions from fellow L-dotters!

This is GREAT news! Mayor Gray has really worked down his To-Do list of pressing issues for DC, if he´s down to the name of the football franchise. Re-elect that man!

Had the Redskins won last Sunday, you would have heard nothing about this from Da Mayor. Had they (miraculously, impossibly) won the Super Bowl, the issue would die for another 20 years.

1. Well, since FedEx Field, where the Redskins play, is in Maryland, there is little chance the Redskins will ever play in D.C. (I´m sure the mayor knows that so he is safe in his little press rant.)

2. Call themselves the "not Washington Redskins". (See 1 above.)

3. Change their name to an unpronounceable symbol and be called "The Team formally known as the Redskins". The men will cheer, the women will swoon and their fan base will grow by a factor of 10. Hey, it worked for Rogers Nelson!

Most of the comments here are great. But I have to say that I quickly become ashamed when I see comments like #4. Using that word, especially in a controversial context, is not acceptable. The word is not generally accepted today among those it´s meant to describe & by using it reflects an intolerant mindset. I don´t want conservatives to be associated with bigotry in any way. The left has always been the real racists, but they have falsely persuaded the public through projection that we are the racists. We shouldn´t provide anything to give credence to the lies.

I have no problem with the team´s current name. If anything, all those teams named after American Indians were done so as a tribute to them--not to be negative. BTW, I´m hesitant to use the term "Native American" because in the early 1970s it was proven that people came here from Europe over the frozen Atlantic about 10,000 years before the Asians came over the Bering Strait.

I´d lay down a years pay to hear the following from the owner of the Redskins:

"Today, after much debate and consideration, the management of the Redskins organization has decided to change the name of the team to the Founders. The reason for this change is not, as it may seem, driven by considerations of racist overtones in the name ´Redskins´. That may be the initial impression. I assure you that it is not. Simply stated, the Redskins name was awarded in recognition of the fact that the American Indians of old were fierce warriors, who let nothing stand in the way of victory. For many years this image worked for its intended purpose. Slowly, however, the image of the Indian has changed from a fierce warrior to a money groveling cowardly sort that is afraid of being called names and lobbies for endless hand outs from the government till. I am sure that if Custer had called the opposing side the most vile, racists names, it would have made no difference in the outcome. Today´s tribes are not made of the same stuff, and as such, are not worthy to be memorialized as the fierce warriors of old.

The Founders, however, reminds us of the fierce courage of the founders of this nation, who risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring into being the greatest nation in the history of the world. Since their type seems all but extinct, we are confident that no one will be offended by using that name. If there are some of that fiber today, they would bear the label proudly."

I have a question for the idiot DC mayor. Sir you say that the name Redskins is racist. Well how do you feel about the moron from ESPN Parker calling RGIII a cornball brother because he´s not like "us". I didn´t hear you speak out on that but you want to talk about phony racism instead. I personally don´t like the ´Skins because of the owner and the head coach(both are tailholes)but the name being racist. That is a stretch if ever there was one. Hey now that this can of worms has been open again should the Chiefs, Packers, Cowboys,and Raiders be racist? Come on mayors of the respective cities lets waste time on trivial matters while Rome burns. Such fools these politicians are don´t you agree.

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

President Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to prod Republicans to bring up immigration reform, but the conversation apparently did not go well. Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
