Default Re: Redskins now gonna be the Bravehearts?

More lame than using a racial slur as a team name?

Look I know almost 100% of the time in 2013 redskin fans dont mean redskin as a slur, but study a little of our history. American soldiers meant redskins as a slur for native americans. considering the historical context of the word and what white people did to native Americans (genocide is worse than slavery, which is already unimaginably evil), I dont even see how this is a debate.

Eg. "lets scalp some redskins"

The only reason this is a debate is native american populations have been depleted to the extent that they are too small a portion of the population to do anything.
