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 lived in San Diego for 6 months when I was 19 and we drove through Arizona and SoCal, it was really shocking because you hear all the jokes, all the remarks, but honestly it was shocking at how many Indian Casinos were between Phoenix and San Diego, especially in Yuma.

Haven't read the whole thread. I lived in Flagstaff for several years in the 90s. Flagstaff borders the Navajo reservation, an actual legal nation within our borders (always found that interesting). Needless to say, there were a lot of Native Americans in the area. Cowboys jerseys were the most commonly seen being worn by people of that ethnicity and Redskins were the second. From this observation of how Native Americans have responded on thier personal apparel choices, I fail to see why this is an issue.

Anything that encourages individual creativity that is competitive that makes a lot of $$ is actual SIN for the Marxist Dem. Political Correctness is nothing more than a made up term by the Marxist Left to attack 'life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness'(original American culture) from many many different angles.

To paraphrase. .you liked it better when minorities took an offensive word used to describe them with a smile and a stiff upper lip; the gold days when they knew their place.

I have a wonderful solution for people who are offended by this, and the way Native Americans have been treated in general:
1. Find the nearest Native American.
2. Give him/her your house and everything in it, since your possession of these things is immoral and is tacit acceptance of genocide perpetrated against Native Americans by your ancestors.
3. Board a plane/ship and return to your ancestral country of origin.
4. ****ing stay there.

And send us a post card when you get there. Or don't.

I won't hold the fact you live in Flor-e-duh against you but the facts speak for themselves, no matter how politically correct you and a few other bleeding hearts here want to make it.

The amount of money the US has thrown at the Native American community, including the Casinos and tax free cigarettes has been massive.

The State of Native America: Very Unemployed and Mostly Ignored
http://inthesetimes.com/working/entry/6801

A survey of death certificates over a four-year period showed that deaths among Indians due to alcohol are about four times as common as in the general US population and are often due to traffic collisions and liver disease with homicide, suicide, and falls also contributing.

. ****in-a right, Frazod. Or better yet(and less committal), just go stand at the bus stop with these mother****ers for an hour and then get back to me on how "native pride" must be upheld at all costs. Also, Chiefsshrink and ThatTurd can both go **** themselves.

On a second point, if the FCC is so God Damn offended, have them go into the Native American communities and try to help them improve their lives with meaningful programs not stupid word play.

And I'm sick of whining right wingers who refuse to aknowledge anything that offends anyone else unless it has to do with their guns, religious beliefs or Duck Dynasty.
