Well, it's good to see that people are taking these terms so lightly. I
must say I was rather stunned to see in the newspaper an article about
the first American team to play a match of cricket at Lord's in jolly
ole' eland. They were a racially diverse team from East Los Angeles
whose official team name is the Compton Homies.

Given how much native americans hate having terms referring to
themselves used in sports team names, I am rather surprised at this
double standard...
