Chiefs dont draw their nickname from indians, it comes from a former mayor of kansas city who's nickname was "the chief"

Actually today the politically correct term for original American natives is American Indian. The logo is definitely racist as fuu though.

I think it has a lot to do with the dictionary definitions that clearly indicate that "redskins" is a derogatory term, unlike the others that have legitimate uses.

Honestly, I can't ever imagine myself going up to a native american I don't know & saying "what's up redskin." I could see myself going up to a member of a blackhawk tribe and asking him, "are you a blackhawk?"

This is from Pro Football Talk:


“A good portion of people who have commented on this think I’m some sort of doctrinaire liberal left-wing guy, which people who know me would be very surprised to hear,” Costas said. ”So that sort of thing is discouraging. Not to me personally, but the way the discourse in the country is now, there’s less of a chance to have a nuanced conversation about the issues.”

“I refer you to the dictionary,” Costas said. “I consulted five. All five dictionaries I consulted define Redskins as pejorative, derogatory, insulting, offensive. Those were the four words used. None of those words — NONE — are part of any definition of Braves or Chiefs or any other team name associated with Native Americans. Now, sometimes, inappropriate symbols or inappropriate rituals can offend people when a team is known as Braves, Chiefs, Chippewas, whatever. But by definition, those names alone are not offensive. There’s no reason to change those names. You might want to reconsider some of the logos or some of the other things, but the names themselves are not offensive. The name Redskins, by definition, is.”

Still, anyone who points that out is a left-wing nut job who wants to systematically eradicate all Native American names and logos from American sports — and then move on to other human-based nicknames, followed by animals. Then plants. Then minerals. Then weather patterns. Then days of the week. Then months of the year.

That’s one of the go-to tactics for those who prefer to cover their ears and cry “la-la-la-not-listening” when someone like Costas is making cogent, reasonable, persuasive arguments against the ongoing use of the name “Redskins.” They oppose reasonable efforts to make changes by citing unreasonable fears regarding where change will lead.

Srs? So they went from saying it was racist, to now it is politically correct?

I am in DC. If it is offensive then they could change it. I don't care about a freakin name of a football team. Such bigger issues, but the news is using this as something to deflect to.

I vote for the Washington Whiteskins. Of course people would find that racist though.

Also, since they are so politically correct maybe we should change the name of a few of our military choppers since those are called blackhawks and apache
