Here’s a link where a poll of native Americans in majority said they were proud of the name Redskins. Only 9% said they were offended. So IMO, my post wasn’t far off in saying they should take pride that their heritage is out there in the sport scene. Apparently the majority do feel that way. Just sayin...........

If you read the comments here, there’s plenty of examples given here where people point out that the Native Americans have no problem with this. Like the the one comment pointed out, it’s largely white people driving the protest against the name.
yep....shit is baffling.

Yeah, SouthsideTony was telling me at work yesterday that there’s Native Americans upset that the logo/name is being taken away. It’s a shame no one got the supporters together to combat it. Or maybe they did but people only listen to the protesters. Sad......
