Political correctness

So the Redskins had to change their name because it is disparaging to Native Americans.

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.
