    Boy Zeus, we agree. NOW explain to me how one argues for the removal of the term "redskins" from Washington Redskins and at the SAME time argue for the removal of "rebels" from the name Ole Miss Rebels??? Makes no LGICAL sense to me.

    It's a bunch of crap Bon.
    Check this out-
    WASHINGTON (USA Today) -- If a councilman in a city that hasn't been home to the Washington Redskins in 17 years has his way, the NFL franchise will change its name the Washington Redtails, a nod to the nickname of the famed Tuskegee Airmen of World War II.

    According to the Washington Post, David Grosso, an independent on the D.C. council, hopes to introduce a non-binding resolution to change the "derogatory, racist name." The newspaper says Grosso has the support of two other council members.
    The ironic part is that the DC councilman who objects to the name has proposed that it be changed to the "Redtails", which is a nickname spin given to theTuskegee Airmen.
    They were a segregated unit . I suspect the irony is lost, as it requires a modicum of intelligence to comprehend irony.
    How more stupid can it get?

    Times change I guess. "Rebel" wouldn't have been appreciated in the 1860's and 70's. Some people will remember until the republic is no more.

    Ok let me try again. People want the term "Redskins" removed from the name because it is offensive to Indians. so the hub bub to remove the term "rebels" was because it was offensive to rebels??????

    I am not privy to the name change at Ol' Miss. I can only speculate.

    My understanding is that if you are a white Southerner, "Rebel" might be a source of pride. But, not everyone is a white Southerner. Kinda like a modern German soccer team calling themselves the "Aryans". Not everyone is a German. There is a little bit of history there that an outside group may take a little umption to. Get my point?
