syrynxx: I think calling someone a "Senator" is far more derogatory.
bucket_pup: And yet another reason why I don't read Slate./// Redskins, Blueskins, Foreskins, two fish. Meh.
AverageAmericanGuy: How about Bullets?
Carth: Searching their past coverage it seems like the only time they mentioned the redskins in the past was when they were a) complaining about the name or owner. b) making sporadic season/payoff updates or c) a player did something stupid.
IamTomJoad: For all the folks that see no problem with a team called the Redskins can you point to any time or place where the term was used in a non-offensive way?
Nana's Vibrator: With the Native American hold on the casino gambling market in the US, perhaps we can call them the Washington Craps?
Giltric: I will no longer refer to Slate as Slate.It will be known from here on out as: fine-grained, foliated, homogeneous metamorphic rock derived from an original shale-type sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash through low-grade regional metamorphism.
Raider_dad: A long time ago talking to an African American gal at work about people and color descriptions she couldn't figure out just what kind of color caucasian was suppose to be. "you all look kinda pink to me"/perhaps lightish red
Giltric: Black people stay black, and very rarely change color.
