By now you’ve probably heard liberal politicians and politically correct sports commentators telling you how the name and mascot of the Washington Redskins are so utterly offensive to Native Americans and how they must be changed and sanitized completely. In a 2014 ESPN Poll, 23% of the people polled said that the name must be changed because it is offensive.
The owner of the Washington Redskins, Dan Snyder has vowed to never cave in to the social justice warriors and small number of activists who constantly try to shame him into changing the name. According to the Washington Post, Snyder has an incredible ally in the fight to keep the name, Native Americans.
A recent poll shows that 9 out of 10 Native Americans find nothing offensive whatsoever about the name. Several of those polled are actually proud of the name and the attention that it brings to Native American people. A Chippewa teacher, Barbara Bruce said, “I’m proud of being Native American and of the Redskins. I am not ashamed of that at all. I like that name.”
Think about that for a second. Almost 23% of people were offended by a name that did not represent them while 90%, an overwhelming majority of the ethnic group the name represents found nothing offensive at all.
80 percent of the Native Americans polled identify as liberal but were still unwilling to back the liberal censorship of the name.
It just serves to show you that all Americans need to stop being so sensitive and politically correct. Not everything has to be an outrage and not everything has to be changed.
