I think you are missing the point, those are Redskins fans and not the team.

The name Redskins is not offensive to me, but I'm not a Native American. I can see how it could be more offensive than some of the other names for teams based on Native American heritage because most of the other team names do not specifically mention skin color. It would be like a sports team being named the Salt Lake City "Whiteskins" or "Whiteys" for example.

I wonder how long it would take for my post to be deleted and me to be banned if I were to refer to an African American or Asian on this forum directly as "hey, Blackskin" or "look here, Yellowskin..."

As a Native American/Anglo, and as someone around NDNs all the time, the answer would emphatically be "No!"

To me? No, not at all. I guess I can understand how some people could take offense though.
