so you get insulted at the word cracker but shrug when Indians get insulted.
I think you intednded the term, "crackers," to be an insult. (In fact, the dictionary explicitly said that it is often intended as an insult--"Disparaging" and "Offensive" were the precise terms it used.)

Do you really believe that the term, Indians," is intended as an insult?

Why just censor themselves when they can censor the public?...

Washington Football Team bans Native American headdresses, face paint from FedEx Stadium

The Washington Football Team, which dropped its controversial name a year ago, has banned Native American garb from its stadium.

Washington has banned fans from wearing Native American headdresses or face paint to games at FedEx Field this season, the team announced Wednesday.
The palefaces are demanding an historical whitewash...

I don't know if you ever went to a Redskins game, but the fans at those games who wore headdresses were not doing so as part of some sort of exercise honoring the history of Native Americans. They were playing dress up in an embarrassing caricature of Native Americans.

So is that why you wore a headdress?

I love how leftist's know what is in the hearts and minds of other people. Perhaps they can see into their own heart and project those feelings and thoughts on other people.

I have some news for you Sloth, not everyone does things out of hatred. Some of us just like to have fun. I know people that have gone to Cleveland Indians games wearing things like that. They didn't do it to embarrass anyone or denigrate anyone, they did it to feel that they were part of the team and to share the experience; to be part of the Tribe, so to say.

If you idiotic claim is true, why to Raiders fans dress up as pirates sometimes? Why do the Saints fans dress in the garb they do? Are they looking to hurt or embarrass someone or are they just trying to be part of the team experience? I've seen Dallas fans dress in cowboy gear. I guess they just hate cowboys.

Perhaps instead of looking for grievance behind every door and in every action, you could chill out and accept that most people don't operate in that manner. Most people just want to go out and have a good time.

And if you think that the actual Indian tribes are offended, you should know that the most popular team in the NFL amongst the Indian tribes, was the Redskins. It does not appear that they were very upset about it, so why are you?

Then why do you invest so much care ranting and raving because someone else changed their company's name? Get over it and yourself.

I'm not sure if you understand this or not, and based on your never ending babble filled and incoherent posts, I doubt you do, this is a forum where we discuss topics like this. And as this particular topic is closely associated with what we would classify as "political correctness", it would naturally fit into a forum that centers itself around politics.

Also, were was I "ranting and raving" as you say? I was clearly expressing my opinion with supporting examples that one could use to help to clarify my point.

Perhaps instead of trying to shut down the opinions of people that disagree with you, which your post is essentially saying, why don't you offer a counter to my opinion? Your ignorant and intolerant post implies that this is not possible with you.
