Yeah, that was despicable, but (and) I understand what is going

on.

It was a complete mockery and humiliation of a culture. That could have been straight out of the hunger games. I had to stop watching when they started wrestling on the ground.

But I've been thinking about it too, and the most curious part is that it is the Washington Redskins.

Washington is the Capital of the vanquishing nation. This is Washington, demonstrating its foot, squarely on the neck of the vanquished. Look at how dumb and ridiculous you are! Idiots! Losers! Don't you ever forget, that your culture is subservient to the dominant culture. (i.e., Suck it, b!tch.)

It is a pure, symbolic power play. We all know that the US government is a bully. Around the world, and right here at home, in so many ways. This is just another, very subtle hint of it.

He's the man.
