Also, Nike has just pulled all Redskins merchandise.

This will be interesting to see if Snyder caves in to the cancel culture.

 

Are the KC Chiefs next?

 

Atlanta Braves?

 

the list of Indian names goes on and on.

The Washington Gutter Rats has a nice ring to it (in honor of our politicians).

Oh, I didn’t know FED EX, Nike, Coke, Pepsi and others demanded the Redskins change their name back in 1969.

 

I thought it was today this all came out.

 

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I spoke to a good friend about this a couple of years ago, when the subject was getting a lot of press.  He is a Seneca tribal member and resides on tribal lands.  He believed that his friends were about equally split on the subject.  He had nothing against the name personally but understands why people object to it.  He also said that Braves and Chiefs were more aspiring names and were looked at more positively.  As I look at it from the point of view that if I had a business and the name was offensive to potentially half of my customers, I'd be looking for a new name.  Additionally, having a name that is viewed as being racially offensive to a significant number of people is reason enough to change it just because it is the right thing to do.  This shouldn't be that hard of a decision.

Nope.  The Washington Red Tails.   WWII African American pilots.   Can keep the color scheme and stylized “R”.

I mean Chiefs and Braves aren't really all that offensive I mean you can say both those things and it's fine where as Redskins is a racial slur on it's own.

I thought in today's society we can all have some pride and respect in the color of our "skins". Im 100% for changing it to the white skins.

I like how every time I call them the racial slurs on here a mod deletes my post.

 

I wonder if that will change now

Actually it would be like them changing it to Washing White Trash. Which coincidentally are the only people who want the name kept.

I'm fine with Washington White Trash,  as long as it gives me a soap box on which to espouse my displeasure.

.... I don't really need to have to spell out the difference between calling a team the Chiefs or the Braves vs. calling a team the Redskins, do I? 🤦‍♂️
