Hey PC Police! Why are you wasting your time on little offences like the Redskins? Why not go after the Miami Hurricanes? They are glorifying a natural disaster, and are completely insensitive to the victims of Katrina that lost their homes or loved ones. And on top of that, most of Katrina’s victims were African American, which also makes the Hurricanes racist!

If they do go and change their name, it should be the “Anacostia Losers”.
Mdibrezzo, I think you have a typo in your post; you said the NYT’s gets the news straight.
I'ts called "Hard Choices". And it actually didn't do too well.
Why is this a surprise? What doesn’t the White House celebrate without turning it towards Obama?
I hope not, Ann, but how many voted for Baraq just because he was black? Ms. Ibraheem seems to be considerably more intelligent than to just vote along racial lines, but I thought most other people were as well. And I was wrong.
Last time I checked, striking a woman – actually striking anybody – was a crime. We have a process for dealing with crimes. If Mr. Rice has been through this process, and the victim does not wish to press charges, what right, much less responsibility, does the NFL have to go above and beyond the law to inflict punishment that even the victim does not wish to be inflicted. What other businesses are asked to prosecute their employees beyond what the law requires? The NFL surely has the right to suspend Mr. Rice to protect their brand if they so desire, but they are under no legal or moral obligation to do so.
Agreed on all points. I’m especially worried about the 2016 elections, too. But there is still a difference between someone who has committed great evil (Hitler) and one who is capable of it (Obama . . . actually all of us). Again, even though I have nothing but contempt for the man, I can’t make any link between the evils Hitler committed and the evils that Obama might commit.
