5 Other Trademarks That Should Be Canceled Besides The Washington Redskins!

PhilHaney by PhilHaney on Jun. 18, 2014

The Washington Redskins football team may be looking for a new mascot soon if the United States Patent and Trademark Office has its way. The Patent office canceled the Redskins’ trademark reasoning that it was “disparaging to Native Americans.” This is the second time that the 82 year old ball club has had a legal fight with the patent office challenging the Redskin trademark.

The latest legal battle came after five Native Americans filed a complaint with the Trademark Trail and Appeal Board. The ruling does not immediately force the team to change its name, but does affect if the team and the NFL can make money from merchandize with the Redskins name and logo. So no worries, they can keep the name but can’t make money from it; thus I’m guessing they will change the name! While the use of the name “Redskins” has been debated for decades, this brings up the issue of other trademarks that are getting away with possibly racist or offensive trademarks. So should these trademarks be denied or is this the evil work of communists? I’m just asking QUESTIONS, it’s up to you to decide!  

#1. Cooking With Pooh

Winnie The Pooh has been teaching children the “joys” of coprophagia for years. But is it time to wipe that shit eating grin off his face and take the trademark to the Pooh franchise away?

#2. Spic & Span

Come on, its 2014, do we really think these two are the only ones to keep us clean? The people at Spic & Span must be shitting themselves over the Redskins trademark loss. What is a better name for "Spic and Span?"

#3. Whites Only

Do we really want a product trademark with such a narrow target market?

#4. Souplantation

Does the name Souplantation seem similar to Slave Plantation to you? No? How about The Soup Gulag? Should the delicious soup and salad bar restaurant rethink its branding?

#5. Asian Helper

Asian Helper? What's wrong with this one? I'm just asking!

Nah we just laugh at you because your profile pic shows a full grown man yet you argue like a child. Not once have you said anything of substance. Instead of discourse on the subject at hand you name call, post meme's making fun of mentally handicapped people, make fun of my profile pic and like a comment by your buddy Keith Umsted where he goes on an idiotic rant and calls me a little bitch. Hopefully it's just the anonymity of the internet that makes you act this way, and in real life you actually treat people like human beings.

Kind of ignorant to call a whole race of people ignorant.

Now come on Shaun, if I had a picture of Wonder Woman as my profile pic you'd be laughing your ass off while calling me a she at the same time. Hahaha

You like to make fun of mentally handicapped people too...nice.

Keith, try reading a book. After reading all your comments on this page I'm amazed at how idiotic a grown man can be. Shawn, not all white people are racist.

Keith Umsted, I actually took your comments semi seriously under my post. I can see now that was a mistake. You are severely uneducated. You should try a little bit of history reading before you make a joke of yourself next time.

So your justification for the mockery of a culture for the use of marketing is that 'we've been doing it for 50 years, why stop now?'. Do you realize how little sense that makes? By your logic we should never change anything because we've been doing it for a long time. I'll not even go into the ramifications of your logic applied to other things humans used to but don't anymore. And what, you think there aren't debates going on about homelessness, hunger, jobs etc? You think they made this announcement and the whole world started talking only about the Redskins? C'mon man, get a grip.

White people free black people cause they like them? This chick will saying anything...Do you claim to be Eurpoeon? If time equals fluster, never mind you suck at math we already establish that. Next!

Just say you didn't like the Washington Calvary. How about this? I like it.

Neal Bertrand

Hahaha Who's flustered now? Haha Took you awhile for that long message. So I'm guessing you still claim to be Indian? All the real Indians are on reservations and own casinos. I'm guessing your far off pappy was forced to leave because he lay with white woman? And don't bring black people into this. They were freed years ago because we like them.

This chick is silly! The Ole' "but I got black friends how can I be racist"? That is like a gay guy arguing that he has kids or a wife, so how can he be gay? No merit. Your a closet racist and you know it. Your just too much of a pussy to display it in front of them. Speaking of closet and gay; what is up with the word butthurt? Back to our argument, like most white people you take your racism to the internet, where your free to talk all the shit you want behind your friends backs. Now on to your math.... If my grand-pappy was lying to me by saying he was full blooded would that make me 50%? Come on.....think hard...think...think? No it wouldn't. Seems your math is about as good as your grammar/rebuttal skills. And I'm glad this gurl keeps coming back for more, you make white people looks stupid. And for that my friends and I think your ego for it. I look forward to your next stupid ass post that I can make fun of. Because you haven't even made 1% of sense? Not even a good put down. "Quit acting like you've shoot bow an arrows" my fav, like shooting a bow an arrow is something a Native does anymore. Most people that shoot bow AN (Its AN not N) are white people. And speaking of deleting, remember your BFF Christina chick spamming with memes? One quick look at her profile found out she a pitiful fat body old cat lady that dress her cat in cowboy outfits. After a few post of blasting on her she delete your comments. That a nice company your keep there. You, a fat cat lady, and fat nerd that still wears a cowboy hat; talking about some classy individuals here. Cant wait to hear from you next my sexy lil butt hurting closet freaky girl, you. And remember I posted my opinion and them your commented on "mine". That is why we are doing this.

You still here? I didn't like my wording so I deleted it Redskin. I was waiting till you commented again on whether or not to get "racial" again, as you would say. And if you say I'm racial, why would I have black friends? Geez. Don't be butthurt. And 50%? Your grand pappy lied to you on that one. Embrace your pale face side. I work nights, so I can do this all night every night. You couldn't just post your opinion, you had to let me know what you thought of mine. Well I guess we'll be going back and forth for a while.

Neil, I thought when someone call somebody a name and make fun of them that the other person won the conversation? looks like she's not only a girl but a hypocrite. Must of took my advice on sticking to Bigot insults because of her lack of education.

Shawn Hicks
Shawn Hicks

Look at her. She deleted her racist post? You go girl! What happened? One of your black friends read your post? I may be only be 50% Native, but least I'm 100% man. and when I say something I don't have to delete it from no one.

Shawn Hicks

Lol Keith you thought white men won the Americans throw Conquest? Try disease, Read a book. It wasnt tell small pox destroy 90% of the population that a white man step foot on this land. Ever wonder why English did get here till 1700 when Spain found the Americans in 1492? And how is your white man doing now, soon to be a minority in the lands you once supposedly conquer. See that why I like having a black president and watching black beat the shit out of you. And didnt you own them? Keep talking shit about the old days, cause that is all your going to be able to do. Talk shit, on the internet away from everyone else.

""Keith Umsted More accurately, As a CONQUERED Native American who's people fought a superior nation and failed to secure their land and protect their people, I can respect that"". Yeah cause this guy not racist at all....white people always try to hide the fact that they are racist. Be friends with blacks and call them N$#@! behind there backs.

And as for the "old days", isn't that what your butthurt about? You've never been called a redskin in your life.

Neal Bertrand

She? If that helps your point to call me she go right ahead. Just means I won the convo bc you have nothing else to say 1/28th redskin. Your 1/2 white side should allow you to like the Washington Redskins.

Neal Bertrand
Neal Bertrand

Quit acting butthurt since you aren't even close to 50% Indian. And since you or I don't know anyone from that time period. Redskin was a description of those people much like they called us "pale face". I have no problem with pale face. I'm white. Indians back in the day were redskined. Much like you and I say black people. Quit acting like you've shot a bow n arrow before.

You're right. It's time for a change. How about the Washington Calvary? Sounds good. We could scalp... whoops I meant scrap the Redskins and go military.

So one's profile picture is meant to convey how seriously their words should be taken? Have you ever considered instead of judging the merit of a persons words on their picture, judge the merit of a persons words on their words?

Let's not forget this. Red Man/Redskin? I see some similarities. Them damn tobacco companies. They kill you with cancer while promoting racism. Down with tobacco! Rufus

He seems to think he's pure Indian. Looks like you might have a little white face and black face in there somewhere. You must hate everyone.

The Yankees might be considered a sexually explicated group of guys. How could parents let their kids wear a jersey saying a bunch of guys yank it? We'll have to change it, it's offensive. Haha
