Funny how nobody has any issue with movies and shows that contain a concentration of everything that offends. People love it!!! You would think teams would also conjure the same emotions since it is also entertainment. Nope. That's where the line is drawn. We have once messed up society.

It's coming down the pipe in movies and media. It's creeping into comedy now where comedians are facing censorship.

Problem is, once this can of worms is opened, there is no putting them back in and sealing the can.

Seinfeld was talking about this the other day and he is one of the most Vanilla comedians out there.

Re: Is the flour De Lis Offensive.

There are some huge, very important points I want to add to this. Things that aren't mentioned in the media because no one wants to be accused of "minimizing" the struggles of minorities in this country, but this is just plain fact.

While all this focus is placed on pre-civil war slavery in this country, the fact is that there was a time when almost the entire world was driven by slave labor. That meant slaves of all colors, religions and languages. What's my point? Just look at the ancient pyramids in Egypt. Celebrated landmarks all over the world, and especially by Egyptians, themselves.

Who do you suppose built them? Ramesses? lol, no. He was the architect, if you will, behind most of their more famous landmarks but slaves did all the work. So why aren't they offended by those Pyramids? Because they recognize it as part of their history. And afterall, they're just buildings, right? How about the Roman Coliseum? If you know ANYTHING about history you should know what took place inside that structure. You cannot look at it without immediately thinking of the carnage people went through, as others stood and cheered.

But it still stands, and it should. It is a good reminder of just how bad things can get when you allow total control to one man. Something this country is devolving towards. I've tried to draw certain parallels like this before, and have had people say "oh, don't even try to make that comparison, it's totally different". No it isn't. If anything, I've brought up things that are worse. If you want your feelings considered over every single subject, then don't stand there and spit on the rest of history.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Here's another little fact most of these "protesters" forgot: who that doesn't learn from history will some day repeat it

Re: Is the flour De Lis Offensive.

Slavery never went away as I pointed out in another post. Obama's recent fast track trade bill, yeah, that was done to put Malaysia back into the fold of cheap unregulated labor. They had to be taken off of the human rights violations list first even though they did nothing to warrant it. Why? because China started regulating their labor. Companies started to pull the plug, hence why their stock market crashed and was locked down for 6 months last week.

Slavery is still alive an kicking, we just move the whole operation into the 3rd world. Take down flags and symbols off of helmets all day. It won't stop slavery.

And if I were the Redskins, I'd keep the logo and call the Team Wounded Knee to remind everyone who the culprits were who slaughtered Native American women and children every weekend.

"There was a woman with an infant in her arms who was killed as she almost touched the flag of truce ... A mother was shot down with her infant; the child not knowing that its mother was dead was still nursing ... The women as they were fleeing with their babies were killed together, shot right through ... and after most all of them had been killed a cry was made that all those who were not killed or wounded should come forth and they would be safe. Little boys ... came out of their places of refuge, and as soon as they came in sight a number of soldiers surrounded them and butchered them there."[2

If I were the Washington Redskins, I'd drop the word "Washington" and just be the Redskins.

Native Americans are much less offensive to me (I am part Cherokee) than the scumbag politicians that occupy Washington...
