The DC Pork
The Washington Waste
Either way the logo is a printing press churning out money.....
Slaveowner Racial Slurs
Hopefully, it’s pretty unique and recognizable.
I haven't read the entire thread, but what about the Washington Lobbyists? Or the Washington Gridlock?
Seriously though, I hope they change it to the Washington Redtails. I think that would be sweet, and you could have some cool logos and merchandise too.
It's much more about angry white people than native Americans. The Washington post survey found 9 of 10 NA didn't have a problem with the name whatsoever.
Not angry about this, but I think 1 in 10 NA being unhappy with the name is enough to warrant a change.
I like the historical and patriotic backdrop to the Navajo Nation's suggestion of "Washington Code Talkers"
But it just doesn't sound right.
I submit murder hornets or the harambes
Is that any less threatening than the Browns or Cardinals?
Should have been changed a long time ago...
I didn't say threatening. It just doesn't have the flow that teams like to have. I mean, we aren't the Iowa State Violent Low Pressure Systems...
love it when people are more offended than the people it’s supposed to offend. Glad the Notre Dame fighting Irish will not change their name even though that is a huge Irish stereotype. Washington can juat change it to Washington skins
They can just call them "Washy Talkies" for short.
I'm surprised that Indians isn't one which would be offensive, considering they were given that name by an ignorant white man looking for India. It is however in the lexicon, used to represent a general term for all Natives.
I’ve saw a couple woke types refer to the group as American Indians recently. Don’t really know the story behind that. Maybe a broader term to allow the various tribes heritages to be larger?
Er, well, you see, long before Europeans arrived on this continent, Native American tribes could be found everywhere, even at the site that DC now sits. I think it was Powhatan territory?
Ya, I'm white as ****. I can't really tell you what the general population of Natives would say. I think Natives is most appropriate as a change for Indians as far as sensitivity goes.
1 in 10 of any group can/should carry the day on any issue?
Of a racially insensitive trivial name for a sports team? Sure.
Odd thought, but I was wondering what DC will be called if statehood passes. Apparently the current bill will change the name to "State of Washington, Douglass Commonwealth" in honor of Fredrick Douglass. Though previous proposals would have made the name New Columbia.
I was just thinking, if DC becomes a state with a different name, how would the teams change their names to reflect it?
