"Yeah, I think so. If we're going to live in a society where it's unpalatable to use racial slurs of any kind ... we should do the same for Native American tribes."

Paul Panagiotou,

Chicago

"If certain Indians are bothered by it, I think yeah, definitely."

Marty Scheiber,

bartender,

Lawrence

"I think if people think it's offensive, they should go ahead and change it."

Jerry McCormick,

carpenter,

Baldwin

"Yeah, sure. For instance, the nation's capital having a football team named the Redskins is about as derogatory as it gets."
