Native Americans have bigger fish to fry than worrying about policing language.
Nine out of 10 American Indians said they are not offended by the Washington Redskins’ name, despite massive uproar from politically correct liberals who insist the term is offensive, according to a Washington Post poll.
The survey found opinions about the term have been unchanged since the last poll was conducted on the issue in 2004.
The news sparked a big reaction on social media and liberals were called out for making a big commotion out of issue that most Native Americans seem to barely care about.
Take a look:

Some in the politically correct crowd couldn’t believe Native Americans aren’t offended by the term, so they simply said they are wrong about their own heritage.

The name of Washington’s NFL team is a slur. If American Indians aren’t offended by it, it doesn’t change that fact. https://t.co/sQH38uRGHa

The 9 in 10 Native American study is not fact. Pretty sure it’s more accurate to say Americans killed 9 in 10 Native Americans, but ?☕️

If you believe that 9 in 10 Native Americans don’t oppose the racial slur ‘Redskin’ then I have a shut down bridge in New Jersey to sell you
