It Was Not Offensive At The Time?

The Redskins have decide to sue five Native Americans because those Native Americans won a victory earlier this year when the Redskins trademark was declared invalid since it was offensive.

The owner’s argument is pretty unbelievable. As quoted from the TPM article: “The team, which has used Redskins as part of its name since 1933, says in court papers that the patent office board was wrong and that its trademarks are proper because the term was not offensive when the trademarks were registered.”

Really? Kind of like the “N word” wasn’t offensive back in the 1800s?

Let’s be clear. It has always been offensive. Racism has always been offensive.
