Change the name from the Washington Redskins

Native Americans are an integral part of the cultural fabric of what it means to be an American. The Redskins name is based on a racial slur of these great peoples consisting of multiple tribes and groups all over the United States. We must stand up to the Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and Roger Goodell Commissioner of the NFL and let them know we will not stand for this! This name must be changed to show the NFL in no way, shape or form will tolerate racial inequality or injustice.

      It is important that we respect all cultures and sensitive to obviously slang offensive names . I thought each generation gets smarter? Dan Snyder I thought you were a smart businessman? Every fan would buy new logo items and you would put a positive light on your NFL Team. Show some class and emotional intelligence. Change the name or sell the team to someone who will.
