The coronavirus has run amuck all over the world and medical professionals in every country are being slammed by the exponential increase in COVID-19 cases. Masks, ventilators and other medical equipment are in short supply and the death toll is rising with every passing day.
We’d like to salute those medical professionals on the frontline in this battle against the coronavirus, many who are becoming sick in the process of caring for their patients. You are true heroes and we thank you for your service and sacrifice!
Native Americans have long taken offense with many professional sports teams with team names that reference their culture, sometimes in a derogatory manner. The biggest offenders who are usually mentioned are the Cleveland Indians(Chief Wahoo), Atlanta Braves(Chief Knock-a-homa) and the Washington Redskins. We think that the worst offender in this group is definitely the Redskins. The term Redskin is an offensive slur even to people of non-Native-American persuasion. Imagine calling a professional sports team in San Diego the Spics or a team from New York the Kikes or a team from Milwaukee the Honkies. It’s just not a good idea! In basketball, the Washington Bullets changed their name to the Washington Wizards because they wanted to distance themselves from a reference to violence. Would it be so horrible for Washington to change the team name to something like the Warriors or some other name which appropriately reflects the city’s stature as the nation’s capital and political and military center? Well, the Bucket is here to help. Here’s a list of possible new team names for the Washington Redskins.
