    Nope. Not touching that bait with a ten foot pole. I'll let one of our resident humorists take that on.

    Yeah, the lyrics, the street lingo. Given that rap includes every other form of obscenity, why would you be surprised it includes use of the "N" word? If ghetto Jews decided that they wanted to start calling each other the "K" word that wouldn't make it any less offensive in principle. Besides the fact that I wouldn't look to rappers as the standard of appropriate behavior or assume they speak for the majority of African Americans.

    Thank GOD the Washington Bullets changed their name.

    It really has changed the way gangbangers behave,


    This whole discussion is sad. Indians, Braves, Redskins, etc....


    The real issue is why is alcoholism, unemployment, etc... So rampant in the Indian community. LAST on the list is sports.

    Having grown up near a large reservation where the "minority" in our school were Native Americans, all I can say is that the conditions were disgraceful. The Indian kids were not treated well by whites and they were pretty well lost from the get-go. Grinding poverty and vulnerability to alcohol, difficulty getting jobs, except low-paying in the lumber business and in seasonal construction. Now I know you'll tell us all about how they just had to pull themselves up from their bootstraps, but the truth is that when you're put in that hole to start with and relegated to what amounts to an internment camp, the odds aren't good. A few became athletes and got scholarships, but the pickings were slim. I don't begrudge them the casino licenses at all. This has been a way out of serious poverty. If any group deserved reparations, they do. What's left of them.

    Right... all your "friends" on Facebook, no less, think you're a peach for calling them derogatory names because everybody is an *ss so why not? And what's the point of all this? How many Muslim friends do you have in your love-circle?

    I don't disagree...but all this sporting names debate is silly. I have heard that in Alaska, poverty is out of control I.e. Eskimos. very similar.


    your reparations comment is telling. throw money at them. You feel good but it won't help either.

    No, I said reparations would be just. I prefer giving them licenses to operate non-taxable operations, which would put them on a par with some of our major corporations. And the licenses do help. They're a lot more rich Native Americans than before and they've shared their profits with tribe members, as well as jobs. You should applaud that approach.

    Re the name issue, it's more reflective of sports teams and franchises catching up with modern culture. The "Redskins" may have a venerable history, but it is a slur. Better simply not to go in the direction of naming teams after ethnic groups, tribes, clans, religious orders, etc. As you said, this is sports. But we all know its about money.

    I'm glad the Greeks don't get all offended by the Spartans, Trojans, etc. mascots.

    Greeks aren't Trojans, Turks are. They might be offended you called them that and vice versa.

    You must admit, "Redskins" is not exactly in the same league as "Indians." Although I think it would just be better if such team names were avoided all together. Otherwise you get those ghoulishly low-class symbols like the Cleveland Indians did a while back with that laughing Indian thing... it was really tacky.
