Why isn't this considered as offensive as black face?

In the 50's, Patty, we kids were still playing 'Cowboys and Indians', John Wayne was still fighting the Apache, and they didn't have any casinos yet.

And TV and movie Indians were all a bunch of white actors in tan make-up. Yeah, I know but I was just making a point sweetie.

Very good point Patty! And why does our Nation's capitol have a team called the REDSKINS! I saw a skit a while back where the native American casino owners teamed up and bought all the sports teams with Indian names and changed them! The team from D.C. became "THE WASHINGTON REDNECKS" I loved it then and I love it more now! :lol: :coolsmile:

Excellent! How about the Cleveland Rockers, Atlanta Peaches, Washington should be the Senators and the West Virginia Rednecks. Maybe the New Orleans Waves oh and the Bentonville Associates! (Guess where Wal-Mart corporate headquarters is 😉 )

Huh, I always thought the Redskins were from the State of Washington. I'm glad I checked before I said anything. I think there might be a flattery element keeping them around. Teams are generally named after something tough and fearsome (in a positive aspect).

Last I heard on this the only people 'offended' by these names were the people who THOUGHT the Native Americans SHOULD be offended by these names.
