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."

That seems pretty silly from my own frame of reference, but there was a time not too long ago when a number of other words (****er, pillowbitergot, etc.) weren't thought to be all that bad either. It's just the way the world is going these days.

I know some cp poster wish for the good old days whem racist terms and words were apart of our Americana, but those days are thankfully long gone...get over it.
You get over it.

The Redskins were here before you were born and will be here after.

It's tradition, leave it alone.

As for the "are the Chiefs next" question...I wouldn't think it'd even be in the same ballpark. "Chief" is not an offensive word, and the football team's name actually came from Mayor H. Roe "The Chief" Bartle, who was instrumental in getting the team to move to KC.

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.

I agree.

But I'm not a libtard.

If the "Redskins" term does get banned you can bet it's only the start.

An yet here you are. .mad victim. I never said I agreed with it one way or the other. I just made the point if it's offensive why are you ao offended by people being offended. This isn't something new. For decades Native American groups have tried to get the Redskins to change their name.

Chiefs were named after Roe Bartle, an obese and somewhat retarded-looking white man, so I think we're good to go.

You could have this guy on the side of your helmet:

That just seems silly. The word Chief has been in existence for centuries before anyone knew what "Native Americans" even are. Seems like more of a strawman you're going after here than anything based in reality.

Well true but if someone where to name an NFL team 'The Slaves' would there be a racist outcry? That term has been around in one form or another since the birth of man. Probably the only term that's been in common use longer would be whore.
