The Washington Red-Tails ain’t walking through that door. Because owner Dan Snyder says the Redskins name will be changed over his dead body.
Snyder’s heard the charge that the nickname Redskins is racially insensitive to Native Americans, he just doesn’t care that is: “We will never change the name of the team…I think that the Redskins fans understand the great tradition and what it’s all about and what it means.”
Oh I know Redskins fans do, but what about the Native Americans that you’re slurring. Go ask them what it’s all about and what it means. And unless you are Native American, stop telling me the nickname isn’t offensive. Not to you, it’s not.
