    Redskins Appear to Be Considering Namechange

    All I can say, is that's about a decade over-due!

    That would be pretty cool IMO. For helmet decals, they could use patches for the 332nd Fighter Group, 99th Fighter Squadron, 100th Fighter Squadron, 301st Fighter Squadron or 302nd Fighter Squadron. Or, they could use them all like the AFA football team has patches from various squadrons on their jerseys on game day.

    The original 332nd Fighter Group patch:

    You and me both. It seems there are more and more woke over-sensitive people around now who have nothing better to do then cry all the time.

    The problem is the Redskins are being bullied into changing it because of Nike, Fedex, etc......... The trouble is that once you give in to the mob its a very slippery slope. The cancel culture could get worse and worse.

    Sometimes I wonder how some 'adults' cope with life.

    One of my pet peeves is having non-Asians tell me that certain words are not offensive to Asians. Who cares about being PC? It's about decency and respect.

    There's been enough Native Americans that have complained about certain teams' names (yes, I know there are some that do not care). I am not going to be one that stands there and shake my head and tell them "You're being too sensitive".

    The problem with this line of thinking is there will always be a small group of people who are offended about something. Do you just cancel something because some people complain. Where does that end...... in a very sad imitation of life.

    Have you ever seen the film 'white chicks' where 2 black guys go undercover as white teen cheerleaders. That was a comedy and it was pretty funny. It I got offended about things like this and started crying to people I would be one incredibly sad individual.

    With statues being pulled down, names changing, etc. history is being revised through erasure, and that scares me.. you cannot move forward if you don’t know where you came from..

    You don't need statues and derogatory nicknames to know history ... if you have access to a library.

    But I would argue that a statue reaches people that wouldn't go to a library.

    It's alarming that we're using today's ideals to change people from hundreds of years ago when times were very very different. People can have done great things that changed things for the better forever and deserve recognition while also having done things that were okay at the time, but that are now frowned upon.

    An example from Canada would be the Famous Five, which was a group of five women who fought tirelessly for women's suffrage, and gained that right. One became a judge, one a Member of Canadian Parliament, two became members of the Alberta Legislature (our version of a state government), and the 5th founded The Victorian Order of Nurses.

    All terrific women, all deserving of recognition and statues. However they were also anti-non white immigration. They also campaigned for the forced sterilization of insane and "mentally deficient" people. Both things are horrifying when judged through the 2020 lens, but when judged through the lens of the time, it was normal.

    So it becomes do we hold them up for the overwhelming positive or do we crush them for what is now an overwhelming negative, but wasn't at the time they were alive? Or couldn't we just celebrate them for the positive while also acknowledging that they had some very serious warts?

    I am not posting much today, but I again support you for what it's worth. Yes, never tell another person or group how they should feel. That's beyond reasonable, and in many ways, ignorant. If a group is not happy with how they are being portrayed, or described, or perceived, then maybe listen to them before acting like it's ok. Sure, it's fine to those who are not being impacted. But unless you know why folks are sensitive about something, do not assume you are correct. Some things in history were very wrong, and just because the non affected think it's fine, does not warrant any form of validation. Again, talk to those folks and try to understand why they feel the way they do. "Walk a mile in their shoes".....

    because some people will always be offended, if you pander to these people time and time again then it gets beyond stupid,

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...Coco-Pops.html

    This was a story here a few weeks ago and a small number of people complained to the government and wanted the monkey removed. They got laughed at for being ridiculous and rightly so but this is what I mean by some people will always find something to be offended at. Cereals have always used animals for marketing as they appeal to children.

    Once the mob gets there own way and has the Redskins, Indians, Braves, etc............. removed then they will move onto something else.... and something else...... and something else........

    Is that really a world you want to live in, or how you want people to look back on history and remember this generation as an over-sensitive cancel culture group.
