This was written to a Chicago Tribune sports writer:


Dear Mr. Page... 
 
I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must  be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward. 
 
Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta  Braves and the Cleveland Indians.  If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes  to skin color, then we need to  get rid of the Cleveland Browns. 
 
The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk. 
 
The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy?  No!  There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that  cost this country so many young men's lives. 
 

I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names.  Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los  Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. 
 

Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates! 
 

Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children.  The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits.   Wrong message to our children. 
 
The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children.

 

The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children. 
  
The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children. 
  
So, there you go.  We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should.  Just the kind of thing the do-nothing  Congress loves. 
    
As a diehard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers   (especially when they play Southern California. Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers???)

 

I always love your articles and I generally agree with them.  As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the “Foreskins” to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Congress.                                                            

On  a more cheerful note:



Hate to wait?

Journal History

History is Important

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their mistakes.
Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it.
Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors are destined to repeat them.
Those who do not know history's mistakes are doomed to repeat them.
Remember 9 11 and Solidarity and learn from what is going on in the world today. Change is coming

Thanks to all my Visitors

I would like to thank all my visitors for stopping by.
I wish the list would show more than 5 because I often do not get a chance to see who has visited when I am not online. So thank you all and leave a message if you can so that I can know who was here and hopefully visit your site also.
