Let me know when the last time anyone has used the word "Redskin" as a derogatory name. Only thing that lives from the word Redskin is a football team name and nothing else.

at least no one expected anything of Bush. Obama's eloquence made him seem intelligent and like a guy who can accomplish things. Instead it was just candy coating on a turd.

Until the majority of the Indian community speaks out against the use of this name, which would be odd to wait 75 years later, then this isn't an issue IMO. People, especially the WH, should worry about more important things these days.

Dude, again, I never said ANYTHING about a specific context of using the term Redskins in a bar on a reservation. I just said no one would be comfortable addressing someone of Native American descent as a 'redskin' and I used a bar simply as the setting. And seriously, if the name 'redskins' is such an antiquated term as you suggest, why did they name the team that in the first place and stick a freaking Indian on the side of the helmet?
Again, I really don't have a horse in this race. Overall, I'm fine with the name redskins, but then again, I'm a white guy and I haven't walked in the shoes of those who might take issue with it.

Just because you haven't heard anyone use it as a derogatory name doesn't mean it isn't. I would bet you aren't around that many native americans to ever have the chance to hear them called it.

It was a second of his time and the diplomatic answer. I suppose he could have said its not important to him, but then people woulda b****ed about that too.

90 percent don't want a name change. Not too many polls around that can give you tjat high of a percentage. That is a poll to just Indians! I therefore can assume thode people have not heard that word ever directed towardsthem. Seriously, if someone wanted to call them a slur, you will most likely here Injune over Redskin all day long.

simply put. the poll is wrong. Seeing as my wife is Navajo and being around native americans more then you. I could tell you firsthand there is not one native that I know that thinks it isn't a slur. So feel free to keep assuming.
