BILLINGSGATE POST - Never one to believe in political correctness, Robert Griffin III approved of the somewhat controversial new nickname for his Washington NFL team, saying that team unity and identity was more a factor than anything else.

Citing the fact that metropolitan Washington was 70 percent Afro-American and that the football team was made up of predominately black players, RGIII said that, "unlike thin-skinned Native Americans, most Afro-Americans have no problem being identified as having black pigment.

Griffin went on to say:

"Over the past two decades, there has been a movement away from team nicknames associated with Native American heritage. With Stanford University changing its name from "Indians" to "Cardinal", besides going from the plural to the singular, which I find odious in itself,
I see nothing wrong with a team using names such as "Fighting Sioux" or "Braves."

"Fight Blackskins Fight!"

Make Dr. Billingsgate's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
