Slate will no longer refer to the Washington Redskins as the Washington Redskins
In an apparent attempt to fire back, the Redskins organization, upon learning of the news, released to me the following brief statement:
What in the fuck is "Slate," and why are you bothering us by forwarding along this moronic porridge of PC rabble rousing? "Slate" can call us the Washington Klan Hoods, for all we care.
Because you know what? It turns out normal people don't much give a shit about Slate. But many of them do love football. And tradition. And understand that the name is not an attempt to demean Natives, but is instead a referent to a football team with a storied history that, in point of fact, keeps the culture of Native Americans mainstreamed, for those who are interested in such PC meanderings.
Or to put it another way, tell this Mr Slate to go fuck himself. Or herself. Or itself. Whatever the fuck it is."
Ask me if I give a Damn

Okay, then. Point taken. So, where’s the next feigned outrage? I’ve got a job to do here!
