Sports

Offensive? Really?

Now the liberal left is criticizing a National Football League team because its logo (Redskins) is no longer, in their belief, socially correct.

Superior Court judge Judith Bartnoff calls it a racial slur.

If we are offending Native Americans by naming sports teams after them, how about the other nationalities in this great country of ours? Are they also being offended? Sports names like Patriots, Volunteers, Trojans, Fighting Irish, Yankees, Canadians.

Where do we stop?

I personally thought most sports logos emphasized team spirit, strength, speed and never-give-up attitude. 

I applaud owner Dan Snyder for taking his stand and not bowing to the bleeding hearts who obviously have no life.
