How crazy is it that the commissioner of the NFL, a white man as white as there has as ever been a white man, decides to defend a racist term that has its origins in the 17th century... a time when political correction did not exist! White men, throughout history, have always used skin color tagging to denote peoples they deemed inferior to them.
White skin color, to them, was the top of the color chain. Black colored slave skin was at the bottom. And when the white mans interactions with Native Americans eventually began to become adversarial, white men gave the term "REDSKIN" to the Native American enemy of the American state!
How easy was it to virtually wipe-out 90% of the Native Americans across the lands of the USA back in the 18th and the 19th centuries? Very easy, when white men are killing off "REDSKIN VERMIN!"
San Snyder, owner of the Washington "REDSKINS" is an arrogant, racist bastard! The former original owner of the Washington "REDSKINS" was an obvious, in-your-face racist! The fans who insist on keeping the name Washington "REDSKINS" are a combination of the truly ignorant, and the outright knowledgeable of their racism, fans who are comfortable with the owner of their football team continuing to use the term that means, and has meant, the deaths of untold MILLIONS of Native Americans at the hands of white men... killing savage "REDSKINS!... through a combination of introduced diseases, slaughtering the "savages" with weapons and starving them of their land, and their culture and their food sources!"
How many ways can a white man kill a Native American? I'll get back with you when they have killed off the last one!
No problem, Roger Goodell! What is another white man defending a genocidal term, right?
