Robert Yates Jr started this petition to We have the power to change this name and its been going on for to long our voices need to be heard.

The Washington redskins name needs to be changed because of the simple fact that it is a racial slur towards Native Americans. This dates back to 1769 when a British Lieutenant sends a letter to a Indian chief asking for safe passage to his village and didn't want to get attacked by any “Redskin”. Also in 1863 The Winona Daily Republican in Minnesota features an announcement that uses the term “redskin” as a pejorative. As result they raised the reward for every Redskin sent to purgatory up to 200 dollars. The year is 2020 and we have gone through alot of trials and tribulations, protest , and standing up for basic human rights this is the next step in the right direction. Changing the name not only shows that we as humans can educate ourself and grow but also shows that we can respect each others ethnicity. A term that was used as a racial slur should not be involved in a team that is known globally and sits in our nation capitol. #HTTW Washington Warriors
