This whole business about the Redskins' name is a good lesson in political correctness. Rather than addressing a real problem, someone perceives a disrespect where there was none intended, and a major portion of the main stream media piles on to punish someone. Meanwhile, real problems are ignored.
There's a government health care program in place that is supposed to provide medical care to Native Americans. It's called the Indian Health Service. And judging by available accounts, it serves its clients about as well as the Veterans Administration does.
The IHS has problems with long waits, inferior care, rationing, and lack of access—just as with the VA and with nationalized healthcare systems abroad. And, like the VA, when healthcare is under government control, it becomes inefficient and ineffective. Just ask Littlewolf.
In 2004, a report of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights unsurprisingly blamed the substandard care in the IHS on the usual culprits: lack of funding, hiring the wrong people, retention and recruiting of qualified healthcare providers, and maintenance of aging facilities. As usual, the report didn’t point to the real problem: the program itself.
The mob clamoring for the Redskins' owner's scalp would prefer not to address another failed government medical care program.
