I just question, especially after talking with my Native American friends, where this even gets used as a slur in modern society (and I'd say the same for yellow). One of my friends is in his mid 50's and has never heard it. He asked my son, who is 12 and knows nothing of the controversy, what a Redskin was and his first answer was "football team' so he asked what else and his next answer was 'proud warrior'. We tried this again with several other kids and got the same response. My friend's mom lives on a reservation and his interest was piqued enough to talk to her about the subject and no one there saw the team name as offensive, nor had they heard Redskin used that way, there were stories about the past but none of them could ever recall an incident in their lifetimes. Maybe some Cowboy, Giant or Eagle fans use Redskin as an insult, but it sounds like it's pretty rare in modern society, or ironically may be more COMMON thanks to a small group claiming it's insulting. The great phillosopher George Carlin said a lot about the power of words, but more importantly about the context we use words in. Taken completely free of context, the name Redskin with the image of the Redskin's logo seems to conjure up nothing but possitive imagery. As a kid myself I though of Redskin as a prideful term. So, if we no longer use a term as an insult, and in many cases have not only stripped the term of any power, but flipped it to a much more possitive term, when to we tell a small fraction of a minority to relax?
