PTO ignores these trademarked names that are more offensive than Redskins
Cracka Azz Skateboards:: Unsurprisingly,: this trademark: was taken out for a line of skateboards and longboards, as well as associated clothing such as bandannas. While the USPTO helpfully notes that “The wording ‘cracka: azz’ has no meaning in a foreign language,” “cracka” is a slang version of “cracker,” which in this context is a term of derision for whites, used primarily within the black community.
You Can’t Make A Housewife Out Of A Whore:: This: trademark for T-shirts and hats: appears to imply that women involved in prostitution can never transition into the domestic role of a housewife. Such an accusation would certainly “bring them into contempt or disrepute,” the stated reasoning for eliminating the Redskins trademark.
Uppity Negro:: Intended to be imprinted on mugs and apparel,: this trademark: references the frequently used adjective “uppity” to describe blacks who agitated for greater respect and civil rights in the Jim Crow-era South.

In this: politically correct world we live in, the standard for what is considered offensive is constantly changing and being redefined by people with an agenda. I think it’s time that people: stop seeking out: government agencies to silence those: we disagree with, and instead remind ourselves of that simple children’s rhyme: we all learned growing up: : “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”
