it would be one thing if they were the name of a tribe like apache, comanche, cherokee, or something. The Chiefs, Braves, and Indians get a pass cause those names are not offensive at all.
Those of you defending the name Redskins, probably wouldn't care if there was a name for racist terms for black people, italians, irish, jews, asians, latinos, or whites. Honestly, a racist term is a racist term. I have no issue with racist terms per say.....I find them foolish, but when used in jokes, can be quite funny.
Still, HS and college did a mass cleansing of native american names and mascots. It is about time the most derogatory name of all be rectified......but then again, I don't expect Skins fans to agree.....or even care....your pathetic team has a history of being the most racist franchise in the history of the NFL....the irony of it all is, the same team that completely shunned black players and coaches, is the only franchise to have a black QB win the SB. I bet when Williams grabbed the Lombardi, Marshall rolled over in his grave.
