Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, July 08, 2014

A liberal blogger hired by Washington for a PR campaign to help it keep using the Redskins ethnic slur as a mascot has quit after only two weeks. A website unearthed some of Ben Tribbett's derogatory tweets aimed at a Native American, which were still on his Twitter account when he took the NFL job. While gambling at a casino in 2010, Tribbett clashed with a Native American gambler and then tweeted, "Just took Chief for his last 300. I'd call it a scalping but that seems uncalled for."

The Tomahawk Chop that Atlanta Braves so love is more offensive
than the nickname Redskins.

Who cares? Names will never hurt most of us, but sticks and stones will. So will the racists and the elitists and chosen few that will stifle the jobs and availability of jobs from most except for their own tribe.

That's how real racism works in Hollywood and in much of American society, but the media will force us to argue about Appalachian Christian whites making $15K on welfare as the root of all racist evil.

The focus of bigotry and racism needs to be shined brightly on those that have all the money and the education and the over-representation, instead of those who don't.

Oh well. That's what happens when you use social media.
Social media and bumper stickers are two things dummies love.

That being said, eventually there will be too many protected classes. When everyone is special, nobody is special.
