I was just reading a rant over at Ace's about how the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee looks girlie, and thinking about the kerfuffle regarding the name of Washington's football team, it suddenly occurred to me:
Why haven't the sensitivity freaks been freaking out about that car's name?
Why don't they freak out about the UH-60 Blackhawk? Or the AH-64 Apache?
And then there's the Tomahawk cruise missile! Scandal!
Haven't heard a peep about any of this stuff. Seems like the hypersensitive are rather selective, don't it?
So it became the Sports Media's "Sign We Are Important!" play for a few months. No one will care by training camp next year.

Given that there are photos of Apache chiefs given their blessings on the AH-64 when it was introduced into service, any of the perpetually aggrieved will first have to make an argument on how those Apache chiefs were not 'Indian enough'. That would probably take more effort than they can spare from their lattes.
Personally, I am waiting for someone to make an objection to the Philadelphia Eagles, being named after the eagle symbol of the National Recovery Administration. I am sure there are people who have objections a team whose name was inspired by one of the greatest overreach of the federal government on the private citizen - but those people tend to have better things to do than issues like this.
