    Re: Should the "Redskins" and other Native American mascots be retired?

    i am going to have to say no as well. Its been over 70 years with the name Redskins. Seems today people are looking for little details about political correctness and its getting annoying. dan snyder is the owner and its his team and he can do what he wants to.

    A 70 year proud tradition of Redskin football I might add. May we have another 70 years of extended Redskin pro ball reign dancing!

    What about schools, which aren't privately owned?

    Good question. Private schools should definitely keep their name. I feel public schools shold retain their name as well. If any person or group should challenge the name, any change should still remain one that pays homage to Native Americans, and the party doing the challenging should be willing to contribute to the financial costs of the change of moniker - in order to demopnstrate their sencerety to flattering American culturalal heritage.

    Does not have to be Native American to be culturally offensive:

    Likely there is not any one thing that exists that escapes being considered culturally offinsive to at least peron or group on Earth. Therefore, it stands to reason that in the overall big picture, everything is culturally offensive. Contrasts in cultures are a necessary element that defines them and, to me, keeps the world interesting.

    In the case of the Middle East mascot imagein your above image, I think it reasonable to asume that the school considers it to be the positive emblem of their sports teams as sports teams, students and fans in general want their mascots to represent toughness, ability, and winning competitiveness. Regardless of how some may persieve the mascots, these sporting representations are actually a great complement of positive cultural intent.
