Redskins Name Isn't Racist, Says Moron At Boston Herald

News

Kerry J. Byrne is out with a Big Think Piece in today's Boston Herald, where discerning individuals always go for their Big Think Pieces. In the article, Byrne considers the possibility that "Redskins" might be a racist name, but concludes that's not possible because the actual Native person depicted in the logo was besties with ol' Billy Penn.


The Native American who inspired the Washington Redskins name and logo was celebrated by our Founding Fathers as a patron saint of America. [...] The face on the Redskins uniform is that of a member of the Lenni-Lenape tribe named Tamanend, or Tammany. He was a confidant of William Penn and symbolized the blend of Old World and New that made the United States possible.

YA BURNT, stoopid libruls, Kerry J. Byrne is droppin' some COLD FOOTBALL FACTS all up on your dome piece. Presumably, smallpox blankets, broken treaties, and the Trail of Tears are other components of "the blend of Old World and New that made the United States possible," but those don't get mentioned because when you're mixing up a delicious blend of cultures, it's best to omit the ingredients that leave a bitter taste in the mouth.

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
