Here we go with another American football season, and the same debate pops up again with regard to the Washington Redskin name.
Look, it’s a racist term, okay? You know it, I know it. It’s time to get rid of it.
While we can debate some names, this one is obvious.
Actually, I honestly want feedback from those involved with regard to this article.
Those names are probably not for me to state a view. However, the term ‘Redskin’?
That one has to go.
Would you want to be referred to by the color of your skin? It’s insulting!
Whites need to put themselves in the places of others before they say that others overreact, because after what whites did to the Indian nations after Wound Knee in 1890 was nothing short of criminal.
Those like the Apache were not allowed to speak their own language-until the white man saw how he could benefit from it during World War II.
Remember the Code Talkers?
Now that I think about it, I think I’m going to ask the American Civil Liberties Union about filing another lawsuit over that degrading name.
If any here who read this are of Native blood, please give me your feedback on this. While my ancestors did come from Europe, I want to try to make things right in any way that I possibly can.
