I dislike their tasteless, stupid, racist team name. I hate their dumb, overly- litigious owner. And I really have nothing but disdain for the team’s attempt to control public perception by strong-arming the media. And, in past posts, I’ve come down on the side of the government when it cancelled the team’s trademark for its name, declaring that the government shall not be in the business of granting trademarks for terms that are disparaging. I was slightly less comfortable when the DOJ made a weak argument that denying the trademark wasn’t a First Amendment violation, but, still, no Redskins trademark was a good thing in my mind, partially because I hate the Redskins. But I hate hypocrisy more. And government hypocrisy is the most delicious hate-meal I’ve ever found, which is why I’m jumping ship and declaring myself on team Redskins. What hypocrisy am I talking about? Well, the government’s hypocrisy as delightfully and vulgarly laid out in this filing the team put in its appeals case. The PTO has registered hundreds if not thousands of marks that the Team believes are racist, or misogynistic, vulgar, or otherwise offensive.

The long-held mark by the football team was cancelled after a group of Native Americans petitioned against it, claiming that the team’s name was disparaging of their people. After I, dare I say, flip-flopped from cheering on the cancellation to having the team itself change my mind with a delightfully vulgar ruling, which demonstrated that the USPTO grants all kinds of marks on “offensive” terms, the current status of the trademark remains cancelled.
Well, the team has now appealed to the US Supreme Court, not only seeking to have its own case reviewed, but also seeking to tie their case to another that we’ve talked a bit about, that of the Asian music group, The Slants. The Slants’ case is different from the Redskins’, with the music group never getting its trademark registration, also based on the notion that its name was disparaging of the very group of people who comprised the band.

Baltimore could have easily won the game Or lost the game It was that kind of crazy day, where a penalty here and there, a missed assignment, a long range field goal that split the uprights and one that didn’t — they all decided the football game.
It was far from the best day for New England, which struggled at various points on both offense going just 3-of-9 on third downs and defense allowing conversions on of third downs. The visitors trailed at halftime and then in the third quarter. But Rob Gronkowski carried the offense into position for a Dion Lewis 8-yard touchdown and the tight end notched a two-point conversion to take the three-point lead with 56 seconds to play.
Still, it took the controversial replay review and overturning of a Jesse James Steelers touchdown with 28 seconds left to keep Pittsburgh from stealing the game late. Then Eric Rowe deflected a Ben Roethlisberger throw into the end zone leading to a Duron Harmon interception to seal the victory. On a day when the Steelers lost star wide receiver Antonio Brown to a first-half calf injury, New England did just enough to escape victorious and set things up for another postseason in which the road to the Super Bowl runs through Gillette Stadium.
It was ugly at times. Most importantly it was a win. It goes back and forth. You play to the end. The ball bounces weird ways, it bounced our way today. Read Buy Rob Gronkowski — A week after sitting with his suspension and watching the offense struggle, Gronkowski put the Patriots on his broad shoulders and carried his team to victory.

Fannie Barrier Williams To name just a few. And the many unsung and unknown black women who through grassroots efforts fought against all the malicious lies and slander that attacked the morals and integrity of black women. Many people out there are not championing the happiness of black women. If anything, we are under constant attack. Today, in America, black women are still considered as less than women in America.
But, we all know that we are women worthy of human kindness, respect and adoration. We know that we are women who have overcome some of the most cruelest atrocities ever committed against one race of women. With so many black men being incarcerated, destroyed by homicide, drugs and AIDS, where will we find the husbands we so desire if the odds against us finding a compatible mate are getting slimmer and slimmer as the years go by?
Can we trust the intentions of white men and non-black men of other races? But, just as there are many black women who still will protect to the end the lives of black men, both in and outside of their family, on the other hand, there are some black men who have abandoned black women to the wolves of the world. Yes, there are still many black men who truly love black women, and who show it in many ways and by committing the ultimate act of love a man can show a woman: But, still the overwhelming numbers show that there will still be many black women who will not have a Black Prince enter into their lives.
We live in a world where black women can have the best of everything and it behooves us to take all that life can offer us.

Nov 19, · Thirty-three years to the day after the Redskins lost quarterback Joe Theismann to a broken leg, Alex Smith’s season ended on an eerily similar injury in Washington’s loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday.
After speaking to one another during a conference break, they found themselves seated only two rows apart during the next presentation. At the conclusion of the session, they were formally introduced by a mutual friend and a very brief conversation ensued. Once the conversation ended, neither thought they would ever see or hear from the other. As luck would have it, the very next day, they ran into each other again.
But this time, they exchanged numbers and agreed to meet for dinner in Raleigh, NC. This date lasted well-over 2.
