Dan Snyder, the owner of the Washington Redskins, happens to be Jewish. So am I (well, half, anyway). As a Jewish person, I have a very difficult time comprehending why another Jewish person seemingly finds it impossible to understand why some of us (I'm also half Lakhota) take great offense at the use of the word "redskin" which had its origin as a short-hand term for the scalps of my relatives when they were turned in to the U.S. Army for a cash bounty. Much easier than dragging in a whole corpse, don'tcha know. . .Given the history of the Jewish people, in my view, and consistent with Biblical teaching for that matter, Jews, especially American Jews, have a special responsibility to speak out against racial and religious discrimination, and to speak up for the oppressed. Dan Snyder has missed a teachable moment and has forever labeled himself as a man who cares more about the ka-ching than he does about the right thing.
