Even if the intention is not dishonorable, the name is offensive and heartbreakingly painful as it refers to genocide of Native Americans.

The name is offensive, and in this day and age we would never have a team mascot named after skin color. Imagine if the word red was replaced with other words like white, yellow, black or brown. No one in their right mind would find this acceptable.

I'm signing because I am an Indigenous first Nation to this country and I find the redskins name very offensive, especially since it was used as the name for a price to confirm a dead Native American.

The R-word has a longer heritage and tradition of racism than the history of its commercial use by a professional football league.
