If we allow ourselves to call a team the Redskins? What would then be wrong with calling a team the Blackskins or Whiteskins or Yellowskins? Instead of a team nickname being the 'Indians', how about the 'Niggers' or the 'Spooks' or the 'Chinks' or the 'Coons' or the 'Coolies' or the 'Crackers' or the 'Wasps' or the 'Dagos' or the 'Darkies' or the 'Dinks' or the 'Gooks' or the 'Heebs' or the 'Hymies' or the 'Honkies' or the 'Peckerwoods' or the 'Ragheads' or the 'Sand niggers' or the 'Prairie niggers' or the 'Spics' or the 'Wops' or the... the listing of derogatory names go on.

When Reagan was elected, the left was deeply troubled — he was advocating for trickle down economics and reviving the tensions of the Cold War. He was also a buffon in my mind — a third rate actor, although I don’t know if that is better or worse than a rogue property developer. In the end, although Reagan did contribute to global macroeconomic instability, he turned out to be a Keynesian president who struck a good deal with the Russians on nuclear disarmament. So, there is that possibility too.
