Washington Redsk*ns or Washington Foreskins, Racist Imagery Must End, By Terrance NelsonTweet
The Joke going around emails has even Native Americans passing along the email without looking at the picture that promotes racial hatred of their people. The joke is great, the picture not so great. The jokes like this.
The American Indian Counsel has requested that the NFL disassociate itself from Indian Names, therefore, the Washington Redskins have announced that effective immediately, they will change their name to the Washington Foreskins, in honor of all the Dickheads in Washington D.C.
You can laugh but now look at the reworked picture of how Native Americans are depicted.
Here’s their new logo:
The Washington Redskins owner has stated that polls amongst Native Americans are 4 to 1 in favor of keeping the Redskins name.
How offended should I be?!
See how one Native American artist put the shoe on the other foot. How offended are Americans to the depiction of their ancestors with a penis on their nose?
The American Indian Movement is planning a protest before the Vikings and Redskins game on Thursday evening at Mall of America Field.
The group will gather at AIM National Office at 1113 E. Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis at 4:30 p.m., march to stadium at 5:30 p.m. and stage a 6 p.m. rally outside the stadium. Kickoff is just after 7 p.m.
We are on our way Clyde, only a few of us from the Canadian side of the border but we will be there at the protest.
Vice Chair, American Indian Movement
