If we're going to get rid of Native American mascots (unless a nickname has the blessing of a tribe,Read More such as the Seminole Nation approving of the use of the name and logo by Florida State University), then what about nicknames that are disparaging. What comes to mind is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Besides the ND logo, there is the logo of a leprechaun in a classic boxing stance. Does the average person still think that a person of Irish heritage settles disputes with a fistfight? I like to think that stereotype has fallen by the wayside. Yet, Notre Dame still keeps that offensive stereotype alive.

The name Redskins should have been done away with long ago. Imagine if there were such a thing asRead More Whiteskins, Blackskins, Beigeskins, Brownskins or Yellowskins how long would that have lasted? This land was stolen from Native Americans, that's bad enough, add a racist term and make the teams colors the color of red skin and it's horrible. Native American images have been long used as mascots and turned into cartoon characters. There is no respect behind it. It is a slap in the face to Native Americans and a reminder of the lives and land that was raped and pillaged. Then to top it off, people will wear their likeness and call it paying homage. Pretty twisted.

Does anyone here personally know a Native American that is offended by this, or is everyone suckingRead More from the teat of the liberal media that tells you this is wrong and offensive? Do you still feel "white guilt" from something that happened hundreds of years ago that YOU had nothing to do with? Elizabeth Warren says this is wrong so it must be (if you don't know the story behind why I brought up her name or who she is please don't respond to this). Twisted to wear a likeness of a group of others, what is next, get rid of Halloween? But this is the Lakeview Patch where people don't offend and everyone lives on Happy lane and farts rainbows, right? Pick any heritage and they have at one time been offended. This is every weekend that this horrible team name is shown on TV so its wrong? Do the REDSKINS offend you in any way shape or form in day to day life? If so, you my want to think about what is wrong with your way of thinking.

I appreciate the accomplishments of the Blackhawks as well, but they are getting plenty of coverageRead More these days, too, so calm down. This was just one little extra story because of this odd thing called the "cross town classic/cup". They're ALL just games, sports and they each have big followings. Yeesh.
