    Washington Redskins. Now enriched with more real Injuns.

    I'm in the "leave the name alone" camp, but Marshall was a racist SOB. Cowboys Chicken Club. Time to bring it back?

    Back then, most places that had "Indians" really were just white guys wearing headdresses.

    I am waiting for the day when some white guys are offended by the term cowboy. It can happen.

    Don't be silly. Cowboy is a job. Redskin isn't.

    Last summer, my family and I drove right past this very school, beautiful school at that. It had the same name, font, design and logo. Before seeing this first hand, I was all for changing the name, not because it is considered offensive, but because it would be another headache for a hated rival. After seeing this, keep the name. A lot of action is being sought to silence a small percentage. Here is the front of the school.

    Logic and facts > emotional, populist arguments. Thank you for your post.

    This who debate is an exact repeat of the Fighting Souix fiasco a couple of years ago.

    It depends on the use of the term and who is using it. I guess it depends on where you are located as well.
