Change the Racist name of the Ottawa Tomahawks to the Ottawa Tom Hanks

The NBL recently announced the name of the first professional basketball team to ever play in Ottawa. The Ottawa Tomahawks, which is the antithesis of inclusion and acceptance that Canada has come to cherish.
We understand that the uniforms are probably already ordered, and they already have an official Twitter account. To make the editing easier for them, we propose changing the name to the Ottawa Tom Hanks. A simple move of a couple letters.
This is a name we could all get behind. Everybody loves Tom Hanks. People don't like racism. This wouldn't be racist because Tom Hanks is not a marginalized population and has never been a victim of colonization, systematic discrimination and cultural genocide.
It's a win-win situation.
