    Most American Indians say that calling Washington’s professional football team the “Redskins” does not bother them, the University of Pennsylvania’s National Annenberg Election Survey shows.

    Ninety percent of Indians took that position, while 9 percent said they found the name “offensive.” One percent had no answer. The margin of sampling error for those findings was plus or minus two percentage points.

    Because they make up a very small proportion of the total population, the responses of 768 people who said they were Indians or Native Americans were collected over a very long period of polling, from October 7, 2003 through September 20, 2004. They included Indians from every state except Alaska and Hawaii, where the Annenberg survey does not interview. The question that was put to them was “The professional football team in Washington calls itself the Washington Redskins. As a Native American, do you find that name offensive or doesn’t it bother you?”

    the survey was sponsored by the redskins, the respondents were random people from the streets of Pennsylvanian who claim to have an Indian ancestry...

    If they want to make the complaining go away just offer free beer to tribe members at the games.

    its such a non issue. the name isnt changing, theres too much money involved.
    and the # of people truly offended is prolly .001%. theres more people offended that the stern show still is named a "show".
    also words dont matter, its the intent when using the words.
    also, after 80 years all the sudden they offended? :facepalm:
    mike, this is the fake story

    Why don't they just change the name and put an end to this discussion. It's not like teams haven't changed names before.

    for heaven's sake....this is what the media are concerned about? after months of liberal do-gooders fanning the flames of outrage, we now find most people don't give a shit.
    gee, how amazing. i'm shocked that in 2014 with the world being on the verge of WW3, ebola, and islamic savages cutting off the heads of innocents...it's so hard to believe the only people obsessing on the "redskins" name change are the same dumb libs who constantly instigate racial disharmony.
    i salute the owner of the washington redskins for NOT caving.

    the medias only concern is ratings, and this topic gets ratings.

    ppl on this site are obsessed with it too, hence threads/posts

    The fucking Daily Show. :facepalm:

    Everyone should take a peek at the video in the link if you haven't already. I'll be goddamned if I'm going to be lectured to on the subject of "inappropriate racial stereotypes" by some douchebag who actually has tomahawks tattooed across his fucking neck. Are you kidding me? What's next? Is Al Sharpton going to tattoo a picture of a watermelon across his forehead? Would that somehow 'enhance his credibility'? Watch football or don't, I could give a rat's ass, but get the fuck outta here with this nonsense.
