Growing up as a kid in the DC suburbs, we actually sang "Hail to the Redskins" in music class in elementary school. (Remember when kids had music class?) And yes, I clearly remember that line: "Scalp ‘um, swamp ‘um, we will take’um big score… (Something something) heap more!"
Anybody who pretends this is about honoring the heritage of Native Americans is doing nothing but denying very real, very obvious racism. There was a time when I thought it was much ado about nothing, but recalling those lyrics is all the indictment I need.
EDIT: I still think renaming the Bullets was a stupid move. Maybe they can kill two birds, by giving that name to the NFL team?
