    I think Chris Rock but it best by saying it would be like having a team named the Newark N-Words.

    Do the pro-current team name people accuse the anti-currrent team name people of being wet, smallpox infected blankets?

    Depends.

    "Redskins" is pretty bad. I mean you wouldn't have a team called the "Negroes" would you?

    But....on the other hand, "Braves" really isn't offensive. And hell, the Florida State Seminoles, are actually endorsed by the Seminole nation.

    As an Irish person, I am grievously offended by Notre Dame's "Fighting Irish" and find the pugnacious leprechaun mascot to be racist. (Nah, I'm not really offended, but I don't like it and don't see how no one seems to question it.)

    The Irish were discriminated against. Not for skin color, but still discriminated against.

    That's why I was sure to specify for the color of their skin. Groups of white people have experienced discrimination, but I would say not largely due to the color of their skin.

    As a Native I don't mind too much, but lets be fair about it....Lets name teams after ALL the derogatory and racist terms out there for ALL races equally. I mean, whats the big deal right?????

    There are just no good racist terms for my race.

    I mean, you can call me a "cracker", but that just makes me hungry.
