May 25, 2014 § Leave a comment
May 25, 2014, Today ABC News This Week w/George Stephanopoulos has Christine Brennan of their sports department discussing activists movements to force Redskins to change their name. The Redskins name is a point of pride for so many, North American Indians and those who aren’t as well. The name of Redskins was created by Native American Indian designer.
It’s unfortunate that negative experiences and stereotypes have been foisted upon and as a result are eclipsing an otherwise positive-meaning name by activists eager to have something to focus on. It’s unfortunate because there are real issues impacting the Native American/North American Indian community that need immediate attention and assistance. Efforts being allocated to this name would probably be better spent correcting those issues.
