    Nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a new Washington Post poll that shows how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.

    Since the nearly half-century-old debate regained national attention in 2013, opponents of the name have won a string of high-profile victories, garnering support from President Obama, 50 Democratic U.S. senators, dozens of sports broadcasters and columnists, several newspaper editorial boards (including The Post’s), a civil rights organization that works closely with the National Football League and tribal leaders throughout Indian Country.

    But for more than a decade, no one has measured what the country’s 5.4 million Native Americans think about the controversy. Their responses to The Post poll were unambiguous: Few objected to the name, and some voiced admiration.

    “I’m proud of being Native American and of the Redskins,” said Barbara Bruce, a Chippewa teacher who has lived on a North Dakota reservation most of her life. “I’m not ashamed of that at all. I like that name.”

    It appears Caucasian progressives are really foaming at the mouth over this. As a NA, I could not possibly care less. :coffee:

    White college students think they might be offended, therefore they are offended.

    I'd be offended if I got a cold call from the Post while I'm trying to eat dinner in my teepee.

    Since when is being "offended" by something a valid argument against that thing?

    I'm sure your opinion will be discarded by some SJW cuck that thinks they speak for all minorities.

    I don't understand why we are still calling them Indians. They're native Americans/

    I know they have in recent years but why weren't Native Americans bitching about Chief Wahoo in the last 75 years. Isn't this caricature more offensive than the name Washington Redskins. The Redskins use a proud and brave image of an Indian on the side of the helmets. Chief Wahoo basically looks like every insulting cartoon drawn of Native Americans since the 1800's. I know Cleveland has stopped promoting the image that last decade of so but that isn't the point. Didn't Native Americans have a voice before that. Why didn't thousands of them show up in Cleveland every day during the baseball season and picket the ballpark. It's hypocritical because it's football. It's the name, not the way Washington presents it.

    How great would a team named the White-Skins be? Albino mascot.
    I make fun of stupid shit cucks say. Concern-trolling for Native Americans about the name The Redskins has always been a shitty way of white people trying to say they "fight" for Native Americans, but ignore the plight of reservations they might be neighbors to.

    Hmm, that does seem to be an issue. Maybe it's one of perception? The label of cuck goes well beyond cuckoldry. It's the idea of giving up what is yours by right, to someone who did nothing to deserve it. So maybe you think giving up what you have is okay, because the people you give it to deserve it. But if outsiders don't see it, don't think they deserve your charity, and it seems to come from a place of guilt, then prepare the wear the label of cuck.
