Robert McCartney, clearly a member of the Progressive FFG (forces for good) Community, told us we are hypocrites for supporting the term “Redskins,” which is “offensive” to Native Americans” [“D.C. region displays hypocrisy over ‘redskin,’” Metro, June 27 ]. The Post routinely uses skin color to refer to groups of people, as in “blacks” or “whites,” yet McCartney finds a complimentary usage offensive. Can we ever grow up?
