    Serious question. When was the last time that "Redskin" was used as a racial slur? 1900?

    That matters why? And I'm certain that you track this sort of thing?

    I feel pretty certain that in states where there is a significant Native American population there are assholes who use this denigrating term.

    Back in 1999 this same B.S. was tried! The court dismissed the complaint on several factors including 1st amendment concerns. What a bunch of *ick heads!! Look up the name "Oklahoma". In Choctaw it means: Red People. Why are the American people not voting these pieces of *hit out of office!!!

    In order to be a racial slur, a word has to actually be used as a racial slur. I just have a hard time imagining someone using the word "Redskin" as a pejorative.

    You wouldn't walk up to a Native American and say "hi redskin". Why? Because it IS a slur.

    Would you say "Hi Indian" or "Hey Chief" or "Whats up Seminole"....Ban one, seems like you have to ban all.

    Matti, you can't be so dense to know that those AREN'T slurs. The Seminoles are an actual tribe and support the FSU program. Same with the Chicago Blackhawks. The use of "Indians" was only controversial because of the logos Cleveland & Atlanta used. Both were changed.

    I'd actually pay money to see that. But Ikeman would probably take his guns along.

    I was being facetious dick.

    But with that said, neither was the word retard just a few years ago. What is and isn't "slur" is decided by more people than just yourself, you can't be so arrogant you don't realize that, can you? ;)

    I guess I gave you too much credit for not being dense. Bringing up the word 'retard'? What's next with you? The 'n' word?

    Have you stopped beating your wife?

    CBF you've been here just as long as I have, we've always got along, so let me give you some advise; This is the part where you deny the accusation that you created the alter ego Burlington Bolt Brother, an account that has been banned permanently, and then you do all you can to help this thread die.

    He wasn't Burlington...

    Unless he has multiple personality syndrome.

    Wait! Genius! That explains sooooo much! CBF! You and I need to have a loooong talk! :mad:

    You say that like I should have some way of knowing, Syd.:confused:

    All I know is he just used Burlington Bolt Bitch's favorite line...A line I've never heard anyone else (ever) use...
    And he didn't even deny it when I threw the dart out there, which I was genuinely surprised by.

    I wasn't so suspicious last night, but now I have legitimate reason to suspect, unless you know something I don't...:cautious:

    I wouldn't call it obvious satire. More obvious pandering. It's why Kwak's post was so perfect, Cooley really is a slut for attention, has been since he was a player (if anyone recalls his Twitter antics, which made Shaun Phillips look like a humble monk).

    In this case he's pandering to the wanton masses of DC Metro radio fans, whose opinion will never change on this and who honestly would care who was offended as they're not offended because they're beating the "tradition" drum. What I've found rather hysterical in this whole matter is that if there really was some "liberal political correctness agenda" out trying to do things just to get their names in the papers or because just one person was offended, you'd figure someone would have gone after Compton High School (whose mascot, as I discovered much to my chagrin several years ago, is The Tar Babes) by now.

    You're the 2nd person now to say that, I'm curious how you guys know for sure.

    It's simple enough to create an email and an "alter ego" type account, only the IP address would give him away.

    Well, technically Blackhawk isn't a tribe but refers to a chief of particular notoriety in northern Illinois.

    *LBC's wealth of useless information once again on display!*

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm well aware the Council on Native American Affairs (or whatever it's proper name is) would ideally prefer that no reference to Indians be used as mascots - but mind you this is the most outspoken bunch among the whole landscape of the Native American population (not unlike the ACLU). What has been shown is that a vast majority of the NA population finds the term "redskin" offensive. The CNAA would likely still be argumentative about changing the name Redskins to Warriors, but again they're a small sect of a larger popular - one that hasn't shown to have as much of an issue with the warrior mascot (as it's been brought up to them before with regard to the one professional and numerous collegiate programs using the warrior mascot).

    So you just confirmed I threw you off your game? Good. See, Syd and Conc have actually MET me. Also, if you look at the thousands of posts I've had since this place started, even someone like you should be able to figure out who I really am.

    But then again, I've learned not to give you that much credit. :p

    No surprise. It's a political/ethical topic that just happens to involve a football team. All it takes is someone with a differing opinion and watch the personal attacks fly.

    It's really a shame that so few can debate issues while still respecting others point of view. I guess leaving agendas, egos and emotions at the door is no easy task, but it would be nice to see more effort.

    All I've confirmed is that you're acting very weird about this topic, nothing more so far. I have no problem with you, I always thought we got along well the last several years, so I'm confused as to why you're acting like a prick right now.

    And lets be honest, people will act different in person than they do behind the protection of a keyboard, just look at the comments section on a You Tube video sometime. So the fact that you all know each other alleviates my new found suspicion exactly 0%.

    EDIT: Conc has since vouched for you, claiming Oz admitted to being BBB...so that's over as far as I'm concerned.

    Still what was the deal with using Burlington's line? The guy is one of the most hated people here, one of the few people in the last few YEARS to be banned for life, and you think it was smart/clever/funny? To use his insult (really it was a desperation line to "get me off my game" when his back was against the wall) as if you were burning me or something?

    Again, I'm confused as to how you're sure Oz is BBB.

    Did he admit it to you guys or something? What did I miss?
