Is it hypocritical?

I've heard Native Americans that don't care, and I've heard those who take offense. There have been Native American symposiums which have stated that the name is offensive due to its racist connotations.

I will admit my biggest factor in deciding that "Redskins" was objectionable was due to George Preston Marshall, who as I stated was a racist prick (Actual quote from him: "We'll sign Negroes when the Harlem Globetrotters sign whites." Talk about missing the point!). Based on the fact that a virulent racist named the team.........I have a problem with it.

I have a problem with the words Native American meaning Indian since anybody born in America should be considered a native American, but I certainly don't expect everybody else to change because of me. I know there is no ill intent behind it, I won't lose sleep over it.
