WASHINGTON – The Washington Redskins are the pariah of the politically correct crowd. The left hates the fact that they represent what they consider a slur against Native Americans. The only problem? Native Americans don’t care. A new poll shows 9 out of 10 Native Americans are not offended by the team’s name.
So why would this be the case? Why wouldn’t Native Americans care? Maybe it has to so with the fact that Native Americans on reservations are incredible poverty. Maybe it’s because they have serious healthcare issues that still need to be resolved. Could it possibly be because that there are bigger problems for them than the name of a football team?
Once you’ve solved every other problem in the Native American community, move on to the Redskins issue. Until then, let’s focus on issues that are actually going to change peoples’ lives. If your high school mascot is the Braves or the Mohawks or the Apaches, deal with it. They don’t care, and neither should we.
