The term “Redskin” is defined in all English dictionaries as either offensive or disparaging. Should you feel the need to research this further, please visit the following links:

Certainly the term “Rams” in the St. Louis Rams’ team name now is sexist and implies gender bias. In keeping with the new socially and politically correct world that condemns prejudicial and bigoted terms that compromise civil rights, shouldn’t The Post now condemn such terms too? In fact, shouldn’t The Post develop a list of all sports teams and ferret out the parts of names that insult, demean or otherwise may be perceived as hurtful to gays and lesbians? For example, many team names contain the term “Bulls” or “Stallions” or “Gamecocks” or “Cowboys” and on and on? How ‘bout it? Shouldn’t The Post lead big media in this campaign by thinking it through? SARCASM OVER.
