    That's the way it is.
    Almost everything offends somebody. Are we supposed to respond to everything somebody finds offensive?

    I don't know specifically about Alaska, but the Native Hawaiians are not the same people as the various tribes of Native Americans. The Native Hawaiians actually emigrated from Tahiti and the South Pacific, where as the Native Americans most likely emigrated from Mongolia/Asia (note: my Native American history is probably not accurate since they teach Hawaiian history in Hawaii High Schools and not so much Native American History).

    Actually when the "Native Hawaiians" arrived in Hawaii, there were already people here. They were a smaller pygmy people know as Menehune. Supposedly once the Polynesians arrived, they took to the forest and have lived there ever since. Obviously there is a bit of legend there.

    But the basic point is that the Native Hawaiians and Native Americans are not the same peoples.

    In this world of political correctness - yes! I quoted Goodell who said if
    one person is offended by the name we have to look into it.

    You cant even say Japs or Chinamen anymore w/o offending someone. Well, what about Irishmen or Englishmen or Frenchmen. Can't say
    that either?

    Not saying I'm for changing the Skins name - just explaining why
    it's going on and who's doing it despite the polls. Like Upshaw said, that;s the way it is.

    Landover "Redtails"?

    Snyders neighbor applied for the trademark. Snyder is still saying the name won't be changed and that he doesn't know the guy.

    Sounds like squatting to me. Nothing more.

    How about the Wash Bullets?

    That was the name of their NBA team that was changed because of
    political correctness with so many people dying of them back when
    DC was the murder capital of the country.

    Re: Landover "Redtails"?

    It's going to be the Wash Bravehearts according to this link.

    For all you guys laughing, it looks like the new name is going to be
    the Wash Bravehearts. An application was just filed with the U.S.
    Patent Office for it by a close wealthy friend and neighbor of Snyder's.

    They worked together in a lawsuit to cut down 130 trees on their
    property along the Potomac River but lost.

    Snyder denies it's his but this is too close to be a coincidence.

    I posted a quote from Goodell who said if one person is offended the
    NFL must look into it. Looks like he put a lot of pressure on Danny Boy
    if this link is true.

    The Bravehearts.

    I'm offended by the consideration of changing the name due to very little pressure.
