The Washington Love: Politically Correct Names for a Football Team #Redskins #politicalcorrectness #racism #sports #football

The Washington Love

In my last post, I created a list of possible new names for the Washington Redskins, names with insulting stereotypes for white people, as a way to "level the playing field" so to speak.  My thinking was that we should embrace our negative stereotypes, hang 'em out there, celebrate them and own them.  However, that approach may not work.  What we need are names for sports teams that insult no one, are inclusive and conducive to racial healing and are transgender inclusive (choke....yes I'm kidding).

Once the new names for sports teams are in effect, we will enter a new era of love and good feeling, where no one on earth is ever offended or insulted ever again.  Hearts and flowers and ballet lessons will be the new norm, and peace will descend like a chorus of angels singing and playing harps and piccolos.  Generals will beat their swords into plowshares and start pot farms.

Here is a starter list for your consideration:
The Washington Twinkletoes

1.  The Washington Love
2.  The Washington Diversity
3.  The Washington Rainbows
4.  The Washington Hugs
5.  The Washington Inclusives
6.  The Washington Gays
7.  The Washington Liberals
8.  The Washington Che Gueveras
9.  The Washington Renewables
10.  The Washington Free Stuff
11.  The Washington Amnesty
12.  The Washington Peaceniks
13.  The Washington Doobies
14.  The Washington Transgenders
15.  The Washington Twinkletoes
16.  The Washington Carbon Credits

So whatta ya think?  Will this movement towards a lovey dovey new sports franchise work?

As you know, I was planning on post on the insanity of this crap about renaming the Washington Redskins.

Alas! My plans have gone awry! Last week, I had to have emergency surgery for a retinal detachment in my dominant eye! My vision will be be whacked out for at least three months. I hope not forever, but these surgeries are iffy.

I haven't given up blogging, but I've been forced to cut back significantly. I haven't blabbed this recent information at my web site (which Sam has been running in my absence), but I've finally mustered enough physical and emotional mettle now to put up an explanatory post on Friday.

AOW, I was wondering where you are. I feared some downturn in Mr. AOW's health, but I see you are the one with the ailment. Sorry to hear it. I do hope your vision is not permanently damaged and that your eye will heal completely.

I was offline from Wednesday, October 2 through Sunday, October 6. As of Monday, October 7, I am allowed to be online -- until the next surgery, which will be at least a few months from now.

The irony is surreal! We just got the van!

AOW, your priority right now is to get well! Don't worry about other stuff.
