2 Sports Journalists Prophesize Name Change For Washington Redskins

May 26, 2014, Clip of yesterday’s discussion between (2) sports journalists https://cliptamatic.com/clips/9106. Both expect Washington Redskins will change their name due to increase in pressure.
Unfortunately no one of North American Indian descent was included in the discussion.
The only North American Indians we know of that want Redskins to change name are those who are career activists, i.e., their singular mandate is to identify an issue and advocate for change. Those North American Indians who aren’t career activists have always found the name to be a reliable source of pride. It’s unfortunate that the negative experiences of some are eclipsing the positive experiences of others.
Hopefully those North American Indians who support keeping the name Redskins will be given as much opportunity to convey their position in media as those that are advocating for name change.
