    Im in those who are in favor of changing it. I however dont think the government should step in to make them change the name. Activist should just lobby the **** outta the team until they change it.

    But if Native Americans want the name change, I think it should.

    We wouldn't have kept the Washington Niggers would we?
    Says it all for me.

    Understand. I wasn't disagreeing with your stance in that manner. I simply took issue with the comparison of it to "nigger", which spoke in a very general fashion and not in a specific "different things to different people" fahsion.

    If an overwhelming amount of Native Americans said you know what? We don't like the name and we want it changed, then I would support that.
    Ditto for the most part actually. I've said before, the moment I change the mind is the moment I'm convinced the a clear majority of the native american population in this country are significant offended by it and want it to change.

    Despite all the drum beat and hoopla made about this by the media however, that doesn't seem to be the case. And you have some of the prominent media figures who have been condemning the name and calling for it to be changed coming out and calling native americans who actually speak out in SUPPORT of the name things like "Uncle Tomahawks", showing that at least for some it's not about being offended...but being offended by that which they personally deem should be offensive.

    Its up to the owner of the team.

    I really don't care. The team will do what it's going to do and at the end of the day we have bigger issues to worry about.

    Why dont we force the KKK to change their name then, or their uniforms? They are far more offensive than Redskins. Oh, but if they start playing football, then its no longer acceptable. Free speech is free speech.

    False analogy. Indians can't change the color of their skin...but the KKK can change the color of their sheets.

    "Redskins" in this context is not offensive and therefore should not be changed nor should the team owner be forced to change it.

    The question had nothing to do with forcing the owner to change the name of the team. If I owned the team, I'd rename it.

    Would that be good business? Maybe or maybe not. I just believe it's good to teach children - many of whom follow the game - not to lump people in with one another just because their skin color looks similar.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.

    You've got Redskins fans, for example, who are so SICK AND TIRED of hearing about this damn story and all the griping and whinging by a very vocal small minority of native americans and by a bunch of menstrating guilty white liberals that they're basically going "yeah, change the name". Not because they think they're right but simply because they're tired of hearing about it.
    It's just football.
    It's okay to be white
