    I'm offended that more aren't offended!

    I'm sure this thread will be deleted or locked. But, before it does, can we go back to Redskins!

    There was another poll that said 65% of Native Americans were offended. I'm willing to bet that neither poll is accurate.

    Given the Post's ideology (the editorial board won't use "Redskins" when referring to the NFL team) it wouldn't seem motivated to skew the results.

    I'm not overly PC, but I can see why the nickname would be offensive. That said, I thought our old logo was very respectful.
