The Washington Thinskins

As I once said during a segment of my internet radio show, there are no degrees of racism. There is only racism at one end of the two-point scale, and good think at the other end. Case in point, Bob Costas has weighed in on the matter of the social acceptability of the name "The Washington Redskins", declaring:

"It is an insult, a slur, no matter now benign the present-day intent [...]"

Therefore Bob, the only difference between the name The Washington Redskins, and say, The Washington Scalpers, is the intent, right?
