He's right on this one. Just like many other pc issues a lot of the loudest protestors of these issues don't belong to the "offended" demographic. Just people beating their chests so they can feel good about themselves.
If the Indians wanted to change there name to the feisty Italians I wouldn't be offended for one second. I would think its a dumb name though.

"'Redskins' is not an insult to our kids. 'Wagon burners' is an insult. 'Prairie n-----s' is an insult. Those are very upsetting to our kids. But 'Redskins' is an honorable name we wear with pride."
And that's the point. Chiefs, Redskins, Braves, etc. are being used in a complimentary way that acknowledges the bravery, courage, and fighting spirit of a people, not in an insulting, demeaning, or derogatory way. I'm sick of the pc crap. Reilly nailed this one.
