"Redskins": Liberals Told Us This Was a Racist Crisis. It Turns Out No One Really Cares
The economy is in the tank, America's enemies are on the march, and what are liberals worried about? The names of American football teams and the ability of perverts to access women's bathrooms where they can peep on children.
Americans care very much about the latter, but it turns out that no one cares at all about the former. As Fox News notes: "A recent national poll found that nine of 10 Native Americans aren't offended by the Washington Redskins name".
The poll conducted by the Washington Post indicated more than eight in 10 said they wouldn't be offended if someone who was not a Native American called them that name.
A federal judge ordered the cancellation of the Washington Redskins' trademark registration in July, ruling that their name may be disparaging to Native Americans. The club is appealing.
Ninety percent of the random national sample of 504 Native Americans said the name doesn't bother them; 9 percent said it was offensive. Native Americans make up about 2 percent of the U.S. population.
Of course Native Americans are indifferent. They, like millions of other Americans, have many other things to worry about
