Do you know what the problem with 'Warriors' is? I may be missing the obvious, but is it a reference to indigenous people (whatever they are called in the region you are from)?

It might even (horrors!) refer to the Mohawk Warrior Society

I was in a 'senior staff seminar' to be lectured on how to deal with gender discrimination. The woman leading the group, a HR guru from corporate, said, 'never call a woman a girl.' Without thinking I blurted out, 'How does one tell the difference?' I never got a clear answer.

Women call each other 'girls.'

Did I miss a memo? When did 'girl' become an invective?

WTF?

Here's an update on what's happening with my old high school. It was proven that the native american group featured in the logo was the Mohawks. A member of the group protesting the change of both logo and team name went to a high ranking member of the Mohawk commuinity and asked if they took any offense to either the logo or the team name. The Mohawk community saw no problem. This however did not stop the group who wants to ban them both  llllllllll

They have now decided to change the logo and are now debating wheither or not to keep the name of the team. The school board is giving the school $25000 to remove the logo from everything. Nice to see that people's tax dollars are being wisely  mmmmmmmmmm

Not at all racist or condescending to ignore the Mohawk community's feelings on the matter, apparently.  mmmmmmmmmm

If the name honors the Mohawks, then it denigrates all non-Mohawk groups.  Either way, some group will be elevated above others or debased beneath them.  This sort of blatent favoritism or discrimination can never be permitted if we are going to achieve a society were everyone is very special and unique, just like everyone else.

Go Vegetations!  Achieve unity with everyone else!

As a vegeton, we all feel that using our race to encourage two teams of people to unify is demeaning and implies that vegetables have no feeling or individuality.

I call upon all like minded vegetables to end this discrimination and conflict now!

We will fight for our....

Ah, forget it. Just let me lie in this compost.

Thanks.

we had the Spanish Flu that originated in....Spain(?)
we had the Asian Flu that originated in...."Far East" (asia, right?)
we had the Hong Kong Flu that originated in....Hong Kong.
we had the Russian Flu that originated in northern china - yes, you can see russia from northern china, MsP.
a previous swine flu from our own fort dix....those pigs.
another hong kong flu that, to eliminate confussion I guess, was named for Avians.

so now, in our PC world, we have a flu that originated in Mexico.
hmmmm.....

it cant be called "swine" flu as it offends muslims and jewish (offends the 'religious')

it cant be called "swine" flu because people will stop buying pigs (offends the 'capitalist')

why cant it be called "mexican" flu seeing how it originated in.....Mexico

is someone afraid that we'll stop buying mexicans?   bibibibibi
