So what's the left marching onto next - Blackhawks, Indians, Braves, Seminoles? I think all movies and hip hop songs that use REAL racist terms should have their trademarks and copyrights removed.

Is this another attempt to take minds off of the terrible mess that is being made in Washington by the current administration? Next it could be the Giants are making fun of big people.

The US Patent made the right decision by revoking that name, which by the way is insulting to many Native Americans.

So the government can just take away property (Trademarks ARE property) because some politician or bureaucrat does not like your name or views. This country has become a police state. The same for basketball teams! If you don't like what an owner says you can take his team from him!? What if you don't like Catholics, or women, or blondes? What if you don't like Democrats or Socialists? Can you take their property away from them?
