The people crying about the Washington Redskins name are the racists. We all come from primitive cultures and many liked to consider themselves –Redskins. The Egyptians called themselves the red people and considered Whites & Blacks as inferior. Many tribes around the world have panted themselves with red ochre; the Native Americans just happened to get deemed Redskins for their use of this red bodypaint.

The picture on the right depicts an White European related to the Celts, so I guess the Boston Celtics will need to change their name. Native Americans are known for their ball games. The Spaniards described the Timucuan ball game as dangerously rough, so he those natives might not see our American football as very manly, but they certainly would not find offence in the term Redskins. Dan Snyder should pay me for this sound defense.
