The New York Daily News posted photos of the Nazi, Confederate and Washington Redskins flags next to one another along with the byline, “Archaic Symbols of Pride and Heritage.”
We get the point they’re trying to make, but this argument is a fallacy. The first two symbols represent violence/genocide, whereas the Redskins nickname is a slur.
If a person bears a swastika are they a nazi sympathizer? Yes, probably. Just because a person has a Redskins bumper sticker, flag, or tattoo, are they bigoted against Native Americans? No, probably not.
