    Nearly four months after a federal judge ordered the cancellation of the Washington Redskins’ federal trademark registrations for disparaging Native Americans, the National Football League team is appealing with a provocative tactic: listing the names of porn, clothing and beer companies that use offensive language, but nonetheless have the support of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

    The notion that all two million currently-registered marks are government
    speech is astounding. It is equally disturbing. The PTO has registered hundreds if
    not thousands of marks that the Team believes are racist, or misogynistic, vulgar,
    or otherwise offensive. By way of example only, the following marks are
    registered today: TAKEYOPANTIESOFFclothing;DANGEROUSNEGRO shirts;
    SLUTSSEEKERdating services;DAGOSWAGG clothing;DUMBBLONDE beer;
    TWATTYGIRLcartoons;BAKEDBYANEGRO bakery goods; BIG TITTYBLEND
    coffee; RETARDIPEDIAwebsite; MIDGET-MAN condoms and inflatable sex dolls;
    and JIZZ underwear. These are not isolated instances. The government routinely
    registers pornographers’ marks: TEENSDOPORN.COM,MILFSDOPORN.COM,THUG
    PORN,GHETTOBOOTY,and BOUND GANGBANGSare but a few.

    I think the Redskins name is a blatant anti-Native American insult but the courts need to stay out of this it's free speech and, while offensive, not obscene or prurient interest.

    It's not "horribly racist" when 90+% of native Americans are honored by the fact that a storied NFL franchise would choose to use them as their symbol of bravery, strength and toughness.

    Without getting into the political implications of the name of the team, can we all agree that the best outcome is for that shit-stain owner of theirs to keep losing? I fucking hate that guy.
