What isn't being said in the debate about the name "Redskins"
This article pretty much sums up what I've been saying for a long time about the name. There may have been a time when the name was considered racist and degrading, but that time has long passed. The Redskins name is part of a proud organization that is proud of it's name. Most AmerIndians agree with this and most either don't care or don't feel the name is offensive. The last major poll done of AmerIndians proved as such when 91% of AmerIndians polled said they were not offended by the name. That was up from a poll in 2002 that said only 75% were not offended. It's time to put this to rest and move on. If the true "Redskins" don't feel that that name is offensive, why do we have to continually defend it?
