‘Political correctness’ is going too far

Some people have too much time on their hands.Such as the governor of Minnesota and the mayor of Minneapolis, saying that the Washington Redskins should change their name.

First of all, maybe these guys should apologize to the Scandinavians for using the Viking name as a sporting name. Possibly Florida state needs to change their Seminoles mascot name. Or, perhaps the San Francisco Giants should change their name to the “Average Size Guys,” so they wouldn’t insult anyone of the height challenged variety. Is this not a whole lot of witch hunting? This system has been OK for years. Why let so called “political correctness” try to fix something that’s not even broken. By the way, I doubt if these nosy people even know why they are called ‘Redskins.” Look it up, read the history, quite interesting.
