JUAN WILLIAMS: Now, on the one hand, Toni Morrison, the author, has said that the PC thing is about the power to define. It's the people in power who said, you know, this is the way we used to talk about the Washington football team. 'How are you going to take that away from us, that's our tradition.' And on that level, I can relate, I don't want to be defined by somebody [else] -- no seriously, I don't want --

ERIC BOLLING: It's still the Redskins. You can't even say -- can't you just say it until they change the name?

WILLIAMS: Well I don't want to say it. I don't want to say it. I don't want to say it. Because, it's just like, I don't want you to use a slur against me. I don't want it, OK? So I'm not going to use it against somebody else.

DANA PERINO: But they're actually called the Redskins. That is their name.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE: That's the actual name of the team.

WILLIAMS: No, it's a nickname that was given to it by the owner! But anyway, my point in this --

PERINO: Like on the sweatshirt?

WILLIAMS: Yeah, the whole thing, that's the nickname of the team.

GUILFOYLE: I know but, so, they're just called the Washington?

PERINO: So like the Patriots?

GREG GUTFELD: I mean, look, I don't get mad over the White Sox!

WILLIAMS: Is that right?

BOLLING: The slur that you're talking about against you, I think is pretty much universally understood as a slur. [UNINTELLIGIBLE] Right? Blacks and whites and probably every single black person would call that a slur, right?

WILLIAMS: Don't ask Hulk Hogan.

BOLLING: Well, no, my point is, there are probably a good percentage, maybe half of the Native American community that doesn't find the Redskins name offensive.
