There isn't a person left in this country that commonly uses the phrase "Redskin" as a racial slur towards Native Americans. Gone, as well, is its original complete form - Redskin Warriors. Despite claims of insensitivity, that the name is derogatory, the original intent was one of admiration. The name reveres a disciplined, fearless warrior that's honored every time the team takes the field of battle. Nevertheless, proponents of changing the name have decided to focus on the negative connotation, which offends a minority of members within the Native American community and others whose eggshell like sensitivities can't accept anything possibly conceived as offensive. Many within the community support the name. Some Native Americans are on record as believing that the insignia honoring the warrior in complete headdress garners pride in a history rich in heritage and timeless courage. Yet, others would urge to have that representation removed as well. How far should the unattainable ideal of complete political harmony extend?
