    a slur is unimportant if it affects nothing and no one. and calling the Redskins football team the Redskins does nothing to harm any Indian anywhere in this country. They are bitching about nothing and will gain nothing from getting their way in this and quite frankly will generate more hatred if they succeed in getting their way. Oneida is a big loser pansy tribe among native Americans LOL.

    Which is it?

    BTW.... would calling a football team the "Blackskins" be offensive?

    My what faulty logic you have.

    Using that logic, why not have teams like the "Georgia Cotton Pickers," or the "Kentucky Uncle Toms" "Memphis Mammys"

    According to my Racial Slur Database blackskins did not make the list. Neither is whiteskins or yellowskins but Yankee is "Slang used by the British. Also used in the former Confederate states to refer in a derogatory fashion to people of the Union states. Slur perhaps originally used derisively against the Dutch, calling them "John Cheese" (they made/ate a lot of cheese); Non-English speaking Dutch called back to the Americans, yelling "Yankee" (mispronunciation). Might also be a bastardization of "Jan-Kees", a common Dutch name."
