    Anti-Redskins ad airing during NBA Finals[W:125]

    Anti-Redskins commercial to air during NBA Finals

    Posted by Michael David Smith on June 10, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT
    Getty ImagesOpponents of the name of the Washington Redskins will air their message before a large audience of sports fans tonight.
    The Washington Post reports that the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, a tribe based in California, has paid for a 60-second anti-Redskins commercial to run during halftime of tonight’s NBA Finals game. The ad will run in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Sacramento, San Francisco and Washington, and the tribe said it made a “significant investment” to purchase the air time.
    The commercial begins with a long montage of names and labels that Native Americans call themselves, like “proud” and “forgotten,” “Navajo” and “Blackfoot,” “patriot” and “soldier,” “Jim Thorpe” and “Billy Mills.” It ends with the narrator saying, “Native Americans call themselves many things. The one thing they don’t” and then an image of a Redskins helmet.
    A longer version of the ad was posted on YouTube just before the Super Bowl and has been viewed nearly 2 million times.

    It's about time. People need to grow up and stop supporting racial slurs as "tradition".

    People need to grow up and stop concerning themselves with what teams are named.

    People need to grow some thicker skin.
    The idiot Indians that are protesting have no clue how the name came about and that their forefathers blessed the name decades ago.
    I could see changing up Chief Wahoo, to something alittle more respectful.
    But the DC team, we have always held the logo and the name in very high regard.
    Hell, the name of the fight song is Hail to the Redskins.

    Is there even a definitive consensus on this from the Native American community?

    It was only a few months ago I was watching something on ESPN about Redskins being a popular NA high school mascot.

    Because not caring about racism is the grown up thing to do. *snicker*

    Where'd you learn that?

    How does Washington DC's team changing its name reduce your enjoyment?

    Is that like gays marrying reducing ones marriage, or gays parading reducing ones manliness?
