Hail to the Redskins

Did it ever occur to many that some of us, given the Hollywood turnaround toward Native Americans as no longer savages to be slaughtered remorselessly, see the Washington Redskins’ logo and its nickname as an homage to the American Indians, their bravery as underdogs, and their fierceness in defending what was rightly theirs to begin with? If it was determined that the name and logo were selected based on prejudice and hatred toward Native Americans, then definitely have them removed and changed, otherwise let’s get real! It would appear, in too many cases these days that political correctness has run amuck!
