So the Redskins had to change their name because it is disparaging to Native Americans.
Let’s not stop there. Don’t forget the Cleveland Indians. And then there’s:
Dallas Cowboys — insults John Wayne
New York Yankees — disparaging to Northerners
San Diego Padres — disparaging to clergymen
Oakland Raiders — glamorizes invasions
Tennessee Titans — disparages followers of mythology
New York Giants — insulting to large people
San Francisco 49ers — disparages gold rush miners
Minnesota Vikings — disparages the Norse
Seattle Mariners — disparages fishermen
And of course, Bears, Dolphins, Cubs, Seahawks, Tigers, Lions, Cardinals, Blue Jays, etc. promote animal exploitation.
When does the stupidity stop?
I stole this and I wish I knew who said it first so I can give them credit but I am ready to join P.O.O.P. (People Offended by Offended People).
I wonder what our world would be like today if all the people who demand acceptance actually showed acceptance.
