FCC Could Ban The Word "Redskins" From Radio & TV - Are The "Chiefs" Next?

These political correctness people are driving me nuts.

If they get their way concerning the Redskins perhaps they will go after the "Chiefs" next.

"WASHINGTON, D.C. (GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL) — The Federal Communications Commission [FCC] could effectively ban the use of the word "Redskins" by broadcasters, based upon a filing by several former FCC commissioners and other communication law experts, if the team's name isn't changed, according to a letter sent Friday to team owner Dan Snyder which concluded that using the word "Redskin" on the air is likely to be contrary to federal broadcast law because it constitutes an "indecency" if not an "obscenity."

The letter from former FCC chairman Reed Hundt and 11 other broadcast law experts says the R-word is the most derogatory name a Native American can be called, and is an "unequivocal racial slur" akin to the N-word. They liken the use of "Redskin" to an "obscenity," which is illegal on the public airwaves in any form, rather than simply an "indecency" which is restricted to certain times of the day."

I don't think 'chiefs' is a racial slur, so I'm not really worried about it.

this current day in age people are way to wrapped up in what offends them; or inconviences them somehow.

is the term 'white man' or 'white people' offensive to any whites / anglos in here?

Not really, but it would depend on the context.

Redskin's name and the Indian's logo are now racially insensitive. Things change. Deal with it old people.

Paranoid bullshit. Chief is not a racial slur. Redskin is. Quit trying to make a stupid point and actually read the words.

Dude. The Chiefs are commonly associated with a Native American theme. Sooner or later, you don't think it's possible that somebody will be offended by that and say the Chiefs need to stop exploiting them? There have been people bitching about the Cleveland Indians, and even the Seminoles. Why? Because SOMEBODY finds it degrading somehow.

If you can't see the obvious distinction between "Redskin" and "Indian" or "Chief", I don't know what to tell you. It is what it is, an antiquated racial slur.

What about Braves?

I can see the difference Brock, but I'm not offended by it. As was said earlier, if someone is offended it's a fact of life. Does the intention of the name have anything to do with it?

And I don't put it on the same level as the n-word. I dunno. I guess my sensitivities are all out of whack.

I'm sure some suburban, yuppie, white dude (probably also a fan of a shitty QB) will be along shortly to call you a racist bastard for even saying such a thing.
