Do As I say..not....

The following was on the Internet and it does make you wonder.


"the federal government which has "Tomahawk" cruise missiles and "Apache," "Blaclhawk," "Kiowa" and "Lakota" helicopters - and used the code name "Geronimo" in the attack that killed Osama bin Laden, officially objects to the name of the Washington Redskins.""

It seems to me the native peoples of the Americas were fierce fighters, cruel, and who isn't in a survival mentality. It was numbers against numbers and the lesser numbers lost, but yet today we choose native names to honor their strength, force, power and warrior ability.

Red skin has nothing to do with the cultural look of native peoples. Is it a perjoritive term for the Washington Football team? I think not, but you decide.
