Default Are we allowed to talk about the Cleveland Indians changing their name?

I know that politics is a big no no here ... but the Indians are changing their name (not by choice of the fans).

What's going on with this country?!?

Yep, country going down hill fast. Political correctness killing all our fun. In the old days you could nearly wipe out a race of people and for years afterward enjoy silly charactures of them as sports team mascots. The good old days.
Wonder if there are football teams in Germany that have funny stereotypical pictures of Jews on their uniforms. I mean, all in good fun right?

I heard they were banning "Baby It's Cold Outside" because of the suggestive lyrics. But "You Can Eat My A**" is perfectly acceptable music wise.

The cancel culture is alive and well. Maybe we should just give the Statue of Liberty back to France....I am sure someone is offended by her. I'm done.

Considering San Francisco is changing the name of a school named after Abraham Lincoln* because he was a little too busy with that whole civil war thing to change policies against native americans, I expect we'll see more of this.

*Hugo Chavez however is just fine despite organizing goon squads to beat migrant workers at the Mexican border so they wouldn't take his union members jobs....
