No matter which side you are on in the matter of renaming the Washington Redskins, this is funny. This guy is hilarious.
Here is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins.
Dear Mr. Page:
I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins.
One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.
Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.
The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk.
The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives.
I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.
Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Pittsburgh Pirates!
Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.
The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic.
Wrong message to our children.
The Cincinnati Reds promote downers and barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.
The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children.
So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing politicians love.
As a diehard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers," especially when they play Southern California. Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers?
I always love your articles and I generally agree with them. As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington DC.
The slogan should be: ESPN Needs Sports
Change the name to DC Politicians. People would pay to see them bet beat.
"In California, Muslim community leaders have applauded the decision of the Catholic high school in San Juan Capistrano to change the name of its football team from the Crusaders to the less culturally insensitive Lions.
"Meanwhile, 20 miles up the road in Irvine, the Muslim Football Leagues New Year tournament will bring together some of the most exciting Muslim football teams in Orange County: the Intifada, the Mujahideen, the Saracens and the Sword of Allah.
"Thats the spirit. I cant wait for the California sporting calendar circa 2010: the San Diego Jihadi vs the Oakland Sensitives, the Malibu Hezbollah vs the Santa Monica Inoffensives, the Pasadena Sword of the Infidel Slayer vs the Bakersfield Self-Deprecators."
Lions? Really? Wow, talk about caving to PC pressure. Once again the Christians are thrown to the lions.
And there are probably other names which are offensive to some:
Green Bay Packers is offensive to real meat packers.
Pittsburgh Steelers is offensive to real steel workers.
Dallas Cowboys is offensive to real cowboys.
Has PETA approved of all of the animal nicknames?
Don’t forget the East Coast White Guilt versus Allah’s Beheaders, and the Liberal State’s Self-flagellators against the Rampaging Barbarians.
The Pomona Thoroughly Ashameds vs the So. Cal. Caliphate.
Clarence Page is to the left of Mao. Since he been on the board of the Chicago Tribune, the former conservative newspaper has degenerated into a leftist rag on par with the NY Slimes. Colonel McCormick is rotating in his grave.
“Green Bay Packers is offensive to real meat packers.”
But I would bet the fudge packers love the name.
Shhhhh...its a double top secret reference to Richard.
Glad you posted it. I needed a laugh.
That is funny! Maybe they can rename all of the teams with PC approved names...
Cleveland Positive Energies
Kansas City Terrifics
What about the Chicago Blackhawks?
Chicago Red Jerseys?
