They will eventually cave to the pressure, change their names and in 20 years people will be offended by the new name. It will never stop. Ultimately I'm not losing sleep over this, it just seems hypocritical and that many people jump on these bandwagons with no real idea why. They seem to have nothing better to do with their time.


I think maybe the people who are part of this crusade to change team names, street names, school names, the names of food items and the tearing down of monuments should look down at the Nike products on their feet, their clothing item labels, manufacter stickers on their electronics and other household items and see how many are being made by slave labor this very moment.


I’m far from a scholar but I feel like the educational system has failed everyone. People aren’t willing to have conversations anymore they just want to yell, throw things and try to cancel people. It seems like it’s all feelings over facts and ok for me and not for thee moral policing nanny state. 

For the record I don’t care about team names. They should reset all of the team names in every sport and make the owners and league pick between the state bird, state plant or State insect.
