The land in Oklahoma was not "given" to Native Americans, it was RETURNED:

I might be wrong but I don't believe the American indian had a problem with their name. I believe this was resolved years ago. This is strictly a gut reaction by the NFL because they have no gonads and being led by their so called leader. He is a very weak individual who will say and do anything to save his very overpriced job.

Not bad... BUT I never liked that kink/fuselage reduction in the rear 2/3 below the star. I prefer the P-38 myself but on "looks" well, the otherside got it right.

I think the Me-262 was better ... and here is some US test versions...

I have never understood why a team name is offensive to anyone. Teams generally like to choose a mascot that is confident and tough. Redskins being the team name should be viewed as a compliment to Native Americans, not offensive.

Many don't like being called a Redskin. Kind of like if a team was called the San Diego Wetbacks and it had a dude wearing a sombrero as the logo.

I thought it was simply because it referenced Native Americans, much like the pressure we've seen placed on the Cleveland Indians, Atlanta Braves, etc. to change names.

The two things wrong is that they are not Indian, as the explorers thought they were West Indian, and also, Native Americans never had a title, name or rank of "Brave", that was made up for story-telling...
They referred to themselves by the name of their nation, Sioux, Cherokee, Seminole, etc, but even those names are english in translation to their native tongue...

Sitting Bull called himself an Indian though. Makes me wonder.

"God made me an Indian. I want to tell you that if the Great Spirit had chosen anyone to be the chief of this country, it is myself. When I was a boy, the Sioux owned the world. The sun rose and set on their land; they sent ten thousand men to battle."

Nope... it’s not really about changing the name. See..... simple minded folks like yourself can’t see the forest because of the trees.

This is about how the far crazy left continues to get what they want with little to NO pushback.

I bet people like you think that couple in St. Louis was wrong for defending their home too.

There is much debate on where the term "redskin" came from. One theory is that some native people used an iron ore powder to paste it on their skin for sunscreen, bug repellent and scent masker for hunting. If you use it long enough, it will stain your skin.

Perhaps first contact with europeans gave them the name, and the name became stuck as other stereotype names typically do.
