THANK YOU KERRY J. BYRNE for this WONDERFUL ARTICLE on the WASHINGTON REDSKINS!

I was about to join the crowd on the Redskins name issue (at least one of two GOP congressmen of Native/Original American heritage, for example, feels very strongly the name should change) when I asked a young man who goes to my church who is of Native/Original American heritage (He’s a descendant of a Virginia tribe in fact!) and he said no big deal.  I’m not offended.  I was in fact persuaded that the tribes in VA ought to get Federal recognition even if it means there could be casinos.  I liked that opinion but the name “Redskins” is troublesome and awkward.

I think there could be no greater honor to give a fellow writer than to link to his site and say:  READ THIS!

Here’s the first two or three paragraphs and then the link to read the rest!

What do the Boston Tea Party, Valley Forge, the Declaration of Independence, Fenway Park and New York City’s famed Tammany Hall have to do with the percolating controversy over the Washington Redskins?

Quite a lot, actually.

They’re all reasons the NFL, and any American who values multicultural diversity, must rally to save the name of the Washington Redskins, along with the team’s history, legacy and feather-headed Indian logo.

Read the rest HERE!

Nothing more need be said.  Keep the name, Mr. Snyder.

    The Redskins name change is nothing but a classic example of the irresponsible Wall St. , Right Wing, Republican owned, mainstream media. forcing a liberal platform on to something very few people care about. It’s all about the ratings. Rating equal money.

    If you do not like the name of something, do not buy it or watch it. Who is forcing people to watch the Redskins? What right do they have to force their beliefs on me? Get the Republican Party out of my life please!

    Bring back the FCC Fairness Doctrine. Ours was a better country with it. Don’t believe it is the Republicans? Well, who is stopping the Fairness Doctrines return? What are the Republicans afraid of?

    The biggest fear a Republican has is the truth about anything, anywhere, anytime.

    One wonders if it was not for evil, would we have anything to do anymore?

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
