When Hollywood westerns were most popular, roughly 1920–1970, "redskins" usually referred to Native Americans when war was imminent or in progress. [37] In the Washington Redskins trademark litigation, the main issue was the meaning of the term in the period when the trademark registrations were issued, 1967–1990. The linguistic expert for the petitioner, Dr. Geoffrey Nunberg , successfully argued that whatever its origins, "redskins" was a slur at that time based upon passages from books and newspapers and movie clips, in which the word is inevitably associated with contempt, derision, condescension, or sentimental paeans to the noble savage. [38] John McWhorter , an associate professor of linguistics at Columbia University , compared the evolution of the name into a slur to that of other racial terms such as "Oriental" which also acquired implied meanings associated with contempt.
