Political correctness is a sport, so let’s just fight fire with fire.
No sports team would name their team after something with a negative connotation. (The UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs might be an exception). Perhaps the best way to reconcile such nonsense as the Washington Redskins flap is to deal with it through humor.
- The Washington Redskins could change their name to the Washington Palefaces.
- The Atlanta Braves change could their name to Atlanta Scaredy-Cats.
- The Golden State Warriors could change their name to the Golden State Peace-pipe Smokers.
Turn anger into laughter. It is the American way.
