The angry liberals just won’t stop.
The leftists want to destroy U.S. history right now and bring down our statues and monuments because they deeply offend them.
Now it has compounded to the maximum because a Maryland private school is trying to censor a team name.
Yes, history apparently offends many people right now.
They’re taking down Civil War statues and monuments because they can’t compartmentalize the time in which these figures lived versus the present day.
That isn’t to say that the KKK and Neo-Nazis aren’t contemptible right now – of course they are.
But if we take down our history, then we’ll live to repeat it.
A Maryland private elementary school has just officially banned its students from wearing Washington Redskins gear.
Their reasoning is because the name and logo are offensive to the Native American population.
Except, most Native Americans aren’t offended by the team name or logo.
The Washington Post – of all institutions – recently found in a new poll that 9 out of 10 Native Americans aren’t offended by the team’s name.
Yet, there is still outrage. Why?
And the school also singles out the Washington Redskins despite the countless “offensive” Native American team names all throughout college and high school sports.
There is no consistency in this offensive attitude because the Washington Redskins are one of the wealthier NFL franchises.
But leave it to a Maryland private school to tell students’ parents what they can wear.
“An elementary school in suburban Maryland has decided they will no longer allow their students to wear anything with the name or logo of the Washington Redskins.
Green Acres School, located in the affluent suburb of Bethesda, Maryland, notified parents of the decision via a letter on the school website.
The letter read, “the term ‘Redskin’ is a racial slur. Its use, whether intentional or not, can be deeply insulting and offensive.”
Neal M. Brown, the head of Green Acres, says that the students themselves brought the issue to the faculty while studying Native Americans.
The issue was discussed again, primarily among third and sixth graders, during a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day discussion of racial and ethnic logos in sports.
The school administration then talked about the issue and how best to deal with it.
Brown said in the letter posted to the school website, “It is a term that demeans a group of people.
Similarly, the team’s logo also can reasonably be viewed as racially demeaning.
At best, the image is an ethnic stereotype that promotes cultural misunderstanding; at worst, it is intensely derogatory.”
The letter specifically requests that parents, “not send your children to school wearing clothing with either the team name or logo in the year and years to come.”
It says that the head of the school will be speaking with students to share with them his decision “and to enlist their understanding and support,” and it invites parents to reach out with any questions they may have “about how to discuss this with your child.”
A 2016 Washington Post poll found that 90% of Native Americans were not offended by the Washington Redskins name. According to 2016 census data, American Indians and Alaskan Natives make up 0.1% of Bethesda’s population.
This is complete and utter nonsense and shows the exact definition of a delusional social justice warrior.
Native Americans are fine with it. Get over yourself.
