its because the term redskin come from when a settler k!lled a native american and brought back his red skin or scalp.

Teams like the CMU Chippewas, Seminols, KC Cheifs all are just names of native american names

whereas redskins is about k!lling them and making fun of their skin

"Redskins" has nothing to do with DC


Native americans were fu*ked over by this Nation. as a slap in the face the football team that plays in the nations capital is called the Redskins. SMH

When you k!ll a bear, you have bearskin.

Kill a Lamb you have Lambskin

Kill a snake you have Snake skin

Kill an "Indian" You have "Redskin"


IF any football team was interested interesed in paying its respects to Native americans it would make sense for it to be a team from Florida or New Orleans to name themselves after native americans in a respectable manner. In those place the Native americans made a deal with Slaves. If the escaped slaves could make in onto the reservation they were welcomed to live. The whites could do nothing to the slaves who made it onto the reservation.


During the late 1740s and 1750s, many African slaves fled to the bayous of Louisiana where they were aided by Native American Indians.

In New Orleans the african americans hold an "Indian parade" every year as way of showing their gratitude.

It makes sense for NOLA or Florida to honor native americans by naming a team after them *In a respectable manner*



CLick above to read the chapter this is coming from.

The Dc football team was the last to integrate. In 1962 they drafted Ernie Davis and traded him bcuz he refused to play for the racist owner of the team who did not have one black player nor a play from ANY northern college. until the Stewart Udell (President Kennedys Secretary) gave them an ultimatum: Sign a black player or you will never play in the new government financed stadium.

In fact the Name Redskins was given to them by their former owner George preston marshall
He named them after this coach who supposedly was a native american according to the defenders of the name.

MArshall made it very clear that he wanted The Skins to be the team of the south.

Ask your friends from DC: " What part of DC is Old DC" They will look at you like your crazy

there is not part of DC called OLD DC.

"Hail to the Redskins f!ght for Old DIXIE" were the original lyrics they have now been changed to

"f!ght for OLD DC"
n*gga what if I wanted to f!ght for old dixie tho

Try again fu*k boy, you n*ggas don't know what you are talking about



I think that it is well established that redskin is taken by most people today to be disparaging. What is more interesting is whether it has always been so, as Harjo et al., as well as various others, claim. One interesting piece of evidence is the origin of the name Washington Redskins. In 1933, George Preston Marshall, the owner of the team, which was then located in Boston, renamed it the Boston Redskins in honor of the head coach, William "Lone Star" Dietz, an American Indian. When the team moved to Washington in 1937 it was renamed the Washington Redskins. George Marshall clearly did not consider the name disparaging.

The term redskin of course goes much farther back than 1933. The details of this history have recently been explored by Ives Goddard of the Smithsonian Institution, in a paper conveniently available on-line. Some of the evidence is available in greater detail on Goddard's web site. You can read speeches by the Meskwaki chief Black Thunder and the Omaha chief Big Elk in which the expression redskin is used, and early nineteenth century examples of the Meskwaki usage of terms meaning redskin and whiteskin.

I won't review the evidence in detail because Goddard's paper is short enough and accessible enough that if you are interested you should read it yourself. I'll just summarize it. Goddard shows that the term redskin is a translation from native American languages of a term used by native Americans for themselves. Harjo's claim that it "had its origins in the practice of presenting bloody red skins and scalps as proof of Indian k!ll for bounty payments" is unsupported by any evidence.⁴ The term entered popular usage via the novels of James Fenimore Cooper. In the early- to mid-nineteenth century the term was neutral, not pejorative, and indeed was often used in contexts in which whites spoke of Indians in positive terms. Goddard concludes:

Cooper's use of redskin as a Native American in-group term was entirely authentic, reflecting both the accurate perception of the Indian self-image and the evolving respect among whites for the Indians' distinct cultural perspective, whatever its prospects. The descent of this word into obloquy is a phenomenon of more recent times.

The response to Goddard's paper is disappointing. Other than reiterating the unsubstantiated and implausible theory that the term owes its origin to scalping, Harjo and others have merely waved their hands, a.sserting that as Indians they know differently without presenting any evidence whatsoever.

Take their land.

Take their food.

When they share with us and help us sneak in and take the land k!ll them anyway.

Disguise this travesty as thanksgiving

Make a mockery of their lives and k!ll them off.

after we k!ll them off make fun of them and name professional teams of entertainment after them but not as they would of wanted.

Enslave black people then later make them join in.

Destroy villages.. r*pe women children and k!ll people for the reason of conquest.. then call them Indians even tho America is clearly not India

Years after we k!lled them off just to gain capital name them after a football team in the NFL.. even if they were ALIVE to detest it like black people do at every sign of racism dont. fu*k them. Its about us. Money is more important. Entertain me. The name sounds cool. Even tho the guy that named that team would probably own slaves also... yea black people.

The Braves are targeted because of the tomahawk chop, tools used to scalp, which they stole from FSU (their f!ght song encourages scalping) and the Indians because of their racist mascot that's a caricature of Native Americans and one that is clearly offensive. George Marshall being racist towards blacks have no bearing on this issue because he clearly named the team out of respect for his coach and friend, who was of Indian descent. Neither of those baseball teams are targeted as much as the Redskins, who's name is akin to calling a white person, white skin, or calling a black person, colored.

Is that why some schools in Indian Reservations have the Redskins as their mascot (some had before the white man/white Indians campaigned to make them change it)

So u see no trouble as putting a native american on a helmet just as that? Red skin? think about that bro.. red skin & a native american face? you do know we murdered these people right.. whole families.. women children & men.. Do you know the history of red skins in this country? Im incline to ask you if ur white or black also..
