    Re: Peter King thinks the Redskins name should be changed

    I hate when politics and football collide. There are some very strong opinions here. And I see some links to a USA Today poll. I wonder what their poll sampling was. 

    Not sure how many here have spent time in "Indian Country" or on reservations. I have spent time on many reservations.  This is an invisible population to most Americans. I can assure you that "red skin' is offensive to a majority native Americans.

     Words/names associated with denigrating a race of people based on their skin color carries loaded messages and negative stereotyping. There are plenty of alternatives to "red skin". I'm with Peter King- change is long overdue.

    Read the poll information. Native polling looks very suspect. 700 plus in 2003/04 who claimed to be Indian.  The rest of the polling on if the "redskin" name is non Indian.  Yeah, change is long overdue.
