Mexican immigrants often have more Indian blood than most "native Americans." Does that count? Probably not.

FWIW, at least one serious linguist says "redskins" originated with or was popularized by the Indians themselves. There's a quite scholarly paper explaining (edit: his) position here:

I haven't encountered anything comparable from the other side.

Conflicts with the greater narrative. Must be disregarded.

It's kind of dubious anyway since it doesn't explain how the words "blackskins" and "yellowskins" entered the lexicon. Did the Indians introduce those racial epithets too?

Too lazy to refute all the points, but it sure is awful.

Ignoring the untrue claims, couldn't it be that the media has a liberal bias and people just don't watch it?

There's a reason MSNBC is the worst channel. Ever.

For fucks sake they have the anti-Semite, homophobic, racist, adulterer, tax evader, lying piece of shit murderer Al Sharpton front and center on their network. It takes a tremendous amount of self-deception and fucking stupidity to do that.

I live in DC and am a big Redskins fan. I could care less if they changed the name.

If it means that the psychic torment of ultra-rich white narcissists and victims-by-proxy is ended, then by all means change the name.

regarding the redskins name... I agree that it is a racial slur but at the same time it just seems archaic more than anything else. I can't remember the last time there was actual hatred toward Native Americans. It seems somewhat reminiscent of "Polak" in a way but maybe worse. Does that make anysense?

Just because you're past the SOL, can't you still be disbarred for "unethical" behavior or some such nonsense?

I'm sure Harvey disclosed it on his bar application.
