Rate Madden NFL 15 "M" for frequent use of a racial slur

This petition had 12 supporters

As has been well publicized, the NFL team based in Washington, D.C. is named for a racial slur for Native Americans. The Madden NFL series for video game consoles has been released every year for the past 25 years and has used this name. Since it will inevitably be released again this year and will include the team from Washington D.C., it would be inappropriate to treat it any differently from any other game that routinely uses slurs or foul language of any kind. Traditionally, games that frequently use slurs, such as the Grand Theft Auto series, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, and others receive a rating of "M" for Mature. By rating the 2015 version of Madden "M", you can send a message to Native Americans and the public that you treat all people with equal respect rather than giving preference to certain races or individual slurs. You will also tell the NFL that the institutionalized use of a racial slur in the United States' most popular sporting league is not something that the public should be forced to tolerate.
