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."

Who's whining? My side won. My ancestors have been here for centuries. God only knows how many Indians they greased. I've got no problem with it.

Now, you could make an argument that the "tribal chant" and even "Arrowhead" could one day be in jeopardy, but I wouldn't think the name "Chiefs" will have any trouble sticking around.
An arrowhead is just a rock tied to the end of a stick. Who does this offend? The arrowhead has been around 64,000 years and originally derived in South Africa.

You can try to stop the fans from doing the Tomahawk Chop if you want, I don't think you'll be happy with the results but you are indeed entitled to try.

you are such a thick skulled nit wit

no one is 'refusing to acknowledge' that there is a myriad of things that offend a multitude of people

what we are doing is refusing to assume that every time someone is offended, someone must change their behavior/take action/be held accountable etc...

If you are alive, you will be offended. Deal with it...you have zero right to 'not be offended.'

You do have a right to change the channel....but apparently being offended is easier for the simple minded.

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.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Indian_alcoholism
This post does a fantastic job of ignoring the environmental racism, educational genocide, eugenics, and sterilization practices that the U.S committed against the Native American people. You know, the practices we were still enforcing until the 1980's.

(The environmental racism is still alive and well, though, as the majority of our nuclear waste ends up dumped on Native American lands.)

Nor yours, whacktard. Please stay away from the Democratic party, take your friends with you, and go join or create your equivalent of the Tea Party, then kindly fade in to obscurity so that those of us who work for a living, back labor, and support real justice can get on with our lives. Thanks.

And send us a post card when you get there. Or don't.
This seems somewhat impractical. May I suggest an alternative? Perhaps acknowledge the oppression and injustices of the past and work hard to make sure the same shit doesn't happen in the future? And also just stop perpetuating racism?

But you know what, I'd hate to annoy anyone with all that basic human decency, so let's scrap that. Back to the ol' drawing board, I guess...

I don't know about you but if someone tells me I can't do the Tomahawk Chop when I want to during a game I paid for... **** em! Maybe the stadium would stop playing the chant and getting Rob Riggle to break a huge drum stick over a huge drum but I'd still do it and so would the rest of the stadium.
