“Are you serious? Maybe the Giants should be protested by tall people, the Vikings should cause Scandinavian protests worldwide, Steelers should cause manufacturing workers to walk out.......

Jesus H. Christ, just because someone identifies a team with a logo doesn't make it an insult.

Does every team have to "honor" their namesake. It is not directly disparaging, obviously, or identifying Native Americans negatively.

Get over it. The Indians have been playing ball as the Indians for many years and there is no need to change the name or mascot nor any malice.”

ta2t2o on Oct 3, 2013 at 15:06:12

“Well a giant was a mythical creature where the word was then co-opted as a slur to typical humans of above average height. Typically though it isn't commonly used as slur towards tall people. Vikings have to do with heritage of Scandinavians and doesn't stereotype an entire people but rather singles out a specific part of those people (i.e. it would be more akin to the Florida Seminoles versus the Washington Redskins) and is also an homage to the primary heritage of the earlier settlers of the Minnesota area. The Steelers don't actual cover all manufacturing workers - again - it's more specific to a select group - those who worked in the Steel industry - prevalent to the Pittsburgh area - and has been done in a respectful manner. In fact, the logo for the Steelers is derived from the steelmark logo. Perhaps you might want to actually know something about the origins of the logos you're trying to defend.

“Caricaturing a race is "racist." Understand that word?

If you were black you wouldn't find blackface to be offensive? Demeaning? Insulting?”

TheMizer on Oct 3, 2013 at 14:21:04

“Do you realize how ridiculous that argument is? The logo is inherently offensive and a horrific depiction of "Native Americans". Their is no way to justify it. Plus spare me the PC police nonsense, it's not about trying to make pity points. No group wants to be depicted in a light that exaggerates the appearance in a negative and unsavory light just so that their non liked minded majority can feel better about liking their team. It's Ludicrous.”

“OOOh well, pardon me!! I didn't realize. In that case, of course you are automatically right! Giving the poor unwashed masses an option to have their children disciplined in their absence is clearly onerous and an offense to good decorum. Ta ta, I have to retire to more leisurely environs for a snifter of cognac.”

acdthurlow on Sep 27, 2013 at 18:51:44

“My point is that there is an inverse relationship between corporal punishment and future success, overall. Of course there are people who have done well despite the abuse, but I think it's been pretty well proven that a much higher percentage of people in prison were beaten as kids than people at elite colleges. Asian immigrants are apparently an exception to the rule, from what I've heard, but if corporal punishment led to a more civil society, and lack of it caused social dissolution, you'd find the highest crime rates in affluent suburbs and college towns where corporal punishment is almost unheard of.”

“Too bad she cares so little for her children that she thinks it is a good move to drag their (the former family) dirty laundry through the public square.

Bad enough the kids have (had) a Dad that was unfaithful and disloyal, but given her reaction and poor judgment, maybe he was driven to it to some degree.

Sad. Seems like the losers here are the kids.”

“I get it and agree, however, I can assure you that women that are typically considered beautiful are also "real" and have "real" feelings that can get hurt by essentially being accused of being phony or fake just because they are fortunate enough or diligent enough to be or keep themselves in shape that conforms to third parties' ideas of beautiful. 
Maybe they are looking great because they want to stay healthy and be there for their families and work very hard at it. Do they deserve to be called fakes or treated with suspicion or contempt for that?
Those swords cut both ways. When we promote alternate versions of beauty, we don't have to do it with language that makes it at the expense of others.
Nothing wrong with "in addition to" others.
Peace and chicken grease.”

“what's to be angry about? Opt out if you don't like it. My daughters' district was one of the last in Ohio to "spank" (with parental consent). Is it a coincidence that they had the highest possible ranking from the state, high student achievement, low disciplinary problems, and one of the lowest cost per student spending rates in the region?”

TEACHusDONTBEATus on Sep 20, 2013 at 19:38:37

“After comparing maps of states with high incarceration rates and low test scores, it appears that they tend to have corporal punishment in common. In fact when my county removed corporal punishment and replaced it with more behavioral specialists 3 years ago the discipline referral rates declined. That's one of the many reasons why they shouldn't of brought it back this year. Sometimes simply opting out and not signing the consent for corporal punishment doesn't really protect children from being hit with a wooden board at school.

“I would certainly say it's a coincidence, because corporal punishment and school performance usually have an inverse relationship. Do you think that the elite prep schools have practiced corporal punishment in the last fifty years?”
