Something To Think About- The "R" Word and The "N" Word

Something to think about......
Definition of a "R" word - American Indian (Usually Offensive)- According to Webster

Definition of "N" word - A Black Person (Usually Offensive)- According to Webster

What's the difference? Once offensive but no longer, at least to the younger generations. The "R" word is largely used to describe a team instead of a people which is considered it's new meaning although said team (with heavy fan support) continues to use the symbol of the "Red Skinned" Indian to promote said team and marketing paraphernalia. The "N" word is used "loosely" within a culture but its use is forbidden outside of it's culture and considered racist. (Double Standard).
