Racial slurs???

Sen. Don Young recently used a racial slur, “wetbacks” while talking about Hispanic migrant workers on his father’s ranch who picked tomatos. This statement was the subject of discussion on Chris Matthews’ Friday TV show on MSNBC, Many republicans took the senator to task for the remark and distnced themselves for Mr. Young and the remark. He has since, apologized.

Later in the evening, Alex Witt on her 8 pm MSNBC show also discussed  the slur, interviewing Rita Moreno about it. 

What I thought was ironic is that everyday  rooters of the washington football team, sportscasters all around this nation, the commissioner of the game and myriad others mouth the word “redskins” and no one, no one ackowledges that that is a RACIAL SLUR and should be excoriated just like the slur the senator used! But nobody wants to discuss that issue!

Why not call the team, whiteskins or yellowskins or for that matter, blackskins? 

I do not hear any apologies or upset at this graphic slur!

Why don’t you guys interview a few Amerinds and get our take on  the washington slur and spenda half an hour on it?

Hellooooo? Don’t we count? I’d like a public response….
